    Lately, since the Jelly Bean update, my phones messaging will randomly stop working. Basically what happens, is I will send a text message to someone and when that text message sends it will show for a split second and then the conversation that's going on will disappear it wont be there at all. I can send another text but it will do the same, show just that message I JUST sent for a split second and then disappear.

    If I press back, to go see all of my conversations, they are gone. It's as if I never had a text message and it says if you want to start a message click new message. Sometimes I will press back and you will see all my conversations for a split second...but then they will disappear.

    If I restart my phone that sometimes will fix it, about 9/10 times it will fix it. But once I return to my messages, any text messages that I had sent when it was being weird, won't send. I have to restart, then click and hold them and press resend.

    This happens with the default SMS application built in, and it's also happening with Go SMS which I downloaded from the app store.

    Any help in solving this would be GREATLY appreciated with a warm donut. If you don't like donuts, then something warm that you do like.:D

    Do you have the free Lock Screen Notifications (by devious found in Google Play Store) app installed?

    What you are experiencing is exactly what was happening with my device. Uninstalling this app solved that problem.

    i had this issue on my phone a while back. but i'm rooted, and at the time this was happening, i was using CM10 stable.

    i didn't have the same issue as you where sending a text would wipe out all the messages. it was very random. like just from launching the app, sending a reply, exiting the app. then all of a sudden my messages disappear until i reboot.

    i switched custom ROMs and haven't seen that issue every since.

    funkylogik share the love peeps ;)

    All i can suggest is back up what u can and factory rerset (seems like SO many people are having random bugs since JB that a reset fixes)

    Wait on a few more replies 1st though mate

    Someone has either hacked your phone or just plain old spying app is on your phone retrieving information.
