    Last night I got an SMS from a friend, when I went to open it from the notification window, I got a dialogue box that told me Messaging had crashed. I confirmed the error, and tried opening Messaging again. I did this several times with the same results. I rebooted the phone only to find that ALL my messages are now gone. It's not a huge deal from a personal perspective, but it is a data loss issue and a big deal from the OS perspective. I didn't get to read the text message to see if there were any crazy characters that caused the crash. Has anyone run into this issue before? Has anyone been able to recover lost SMS before? I'm guessing I'll have to start backing them up.
