    Problem Exists Between Chair and Keyboard

    hes saying its something we did.... although i didn't configure anything a certain way or delete anything... as buggy as these devices are I wouldn't be surprised if it was just that... a bug

    I'd say there's two possibilities here.

    I know the default is to only have up to 200 messages in a thread allowed. Not sure what it does after that - kill the thread, or just start pushing the first message off as you get a new one.

    The other option, much more likely, is that you have a 3rd party app installed that is hosing something. It could be a messaging related app, or just a random app not related to messaging that is screwing things up.

    Got anything really strange/non-standard installed that could be buggy? I'd start removing apps that you're not sure about until you determine the problem isn't happening anymore. Then re-install the apps slowly one by one. Pain but might work.

    Also I'd go set your messages to allow 999 instead of 200, just in case. I did that on day one so I can't verify what happens after message 200.

    If you go to your message settings there are two boxes to look for. One has a spot to check if you want old messages deleted and the other box you can set your limit on how many old messages to store. Hope this helps.

    i don't think it's a limit issue cause it's even deleting my locked ones which it shouldn't do

    Ha! I also recognized his pic. Probably the same place you mentioned. The Voyager was what I left for the Droid.

    +1. I'm tired of people responding to simple "why is this happening" questions with BS like "what's the big deal" or "get over it".

    If you don't have an answer that helps, how about keeping your mouth shut? It's obviously a big deal to the person posting it. Just because you can't see past your nose doesn't mean other people don't have a reason to want to save locked texts.

    Heh, I dunno where he'd get that idea from - your post was about a specific issue you were having and if anyone else had the problem. I don't see "DROID SUCKS" anywhere in your post :p

    I hope you can find a resolution to your issue - I'd definitely look into what third party apps might be affecting you if changing the "200" threshold in the settings doesn't help.

    perhaps you mishandled the droid. please note the following:

    The same thing happened to me. My suspicion is that the "Delete old messages" option is what deleted my texts. Since I text a lot and have no other messaging apps installed.

    Yes. I assumed it was that option that was the cause of the deletion. From looking around in settings.
