    Anyone think 2.2 will fix the whole "my droid randomly deleted all my texts again" issue? I really hope so because I'm sick of this happening 2-3 times a week

    How many texts do you send a week? I've never lost a single text since I got my Droid on the original release day...wondering if you are up in the thousands and are pushing some limit that I'll never get near to.

    Until you resolve your problems, you could get My Backup Pro and use it to back up your texts to your SD card or online automatically on a schedule you set.

    I've never had this issue either, had my droid since release day...I don't send too many texts lately though, maybe 50 a week.

    Have you done a reset to see if that clears up the issue?

    Are you stock? If so, then I'd make Verizon give you another phone, or fix the problem.

    If you're not stock, then I'd wipe and install another ROM.

    This is not normal.

    This also happens to me, I just use some app that backs them up to gmail, gives me a nice log of what has gone on
  7. Knock on wood, but after I rooted and put Nexbeast on my droid it hasn't deleted my texts. It has happened to me before I rooted, so maybe that could be a cause?

    This brings up a question I've had since I first got my Droid but was never appropriately answered. When I get texts that have a video/.gif/some form of moving pix and they have a bit of text w/ it, it's like chopped and screwed. Every phone I've had displays them normally, but the Droid has always seemed to have a prob w them. Like if it's just a bunch of pix looped they'll start w/ a blank screen, be long pauses between the pix and then display the text. The way it should play is the text should be at the bottom of the pic, and the pix would loop seamlessly. Is there a fix for this, or is this just the Droid?

    I don't really know how else to describe what I'm talking about, but they're common messages you'd get from anyone. Like I said, it's been this way since I've owned the Droid, but I never really got an answer on here (I haven't addressed this issue since before I rooted).

    EDIT: I just checked on my g/f's Incredible, and it's the same issue. Doesn't matter if we use the stock or Handcent. So is this an Android issue?

    The only problem I have with text messages is that every now and then (maybe 1 in 50 during a long conversation) I will get a notification of a new text, but the single message will not be in the conversation list.

    For example, last night I was talking to my girlfriend and Handcent SMS played my new text notification and put the icon in the notification bar. I pulled down the notification bar and was able to read the first few words of the text. However, when I clicked it and opened Handcent SMS, the text was not there at all. I have had this happen in the stock text app as well.

    Usually this is not a big deal because I am just talking to friends, family, my girlfriend, etc. However, I do have clients who text me from time to time and if it ever happens with one of them that could be very bad.

    Right now, the only fix I know of is to simply ask that the text be resent. I'm not sure if this is what everyone is talking about when they state that their texts get deleted, but I do hope it gets fixed soon.

    This seems to me like you're describing animated .gifs, which Android in general, I think, doesn't support. Lame and odd, I know, given we have the smartest of the smartphones. Oh well.

    If you're running cyanogenmod, I believe gifs are now supported in the browser...

    Back to the op...verizon should either fix this issue for you or get you a replacement droid to try

    It happened to me on BB1.0...... it sucks, but i think it may have had to do with the 10k texts i had :)

    I'm hesitant to ask verizon for a new one because most likely I'll get a "like new" piece of garbage. I've read up on these and most of the time they're faulty, the voyager they sent me as a replacement when I had that phone didn't function either.

    Yeah, that sounds right. Def an issue I'd like to see Google address.
