    Stock Messaging App comes with the phone.

    It just started happening maybe 2 weeks ago.
    It only happens in group conversations, but not individual convo text.
    At first I didn't know what was going on, all I noticed was that old messages in groip conv kept disappearing.

    Then today, I see it in real time what it is doing: as a new group text comes in, the oldest one gets deleted. Another new one comes in, the next oldest one would get deleted. Very strange.

    I check the setting for Messaging App and the Text Message Limit is set to 300 per convo and Multimedia Message Limit is 50 per convo. Both are more than enough.

    This is stange. Anyone has the same issue? Any idea?

  2. I am having this same issue but both my group and individual text messages are disappearing. I needed to go back to check some info on a group text thread and everything from yesterday is gone. What is the setting to control what gets removed?
