    All of my SMS messages have disappeared, I have had my HTC Desire since the end of May and suddenly today all my SMS messages are gone without warning. I had auto backup to SD card enabled, but this option seems to have disappeared on 2.2, even if I could retrieve the old messages that were backed up to the SD card beforehand that would be great, there's nothing left! Delete old messages is turned off and I have tried turning the phone off and back on again but it hasn't helped. What can I do?

    All of my SMS messages disappeared when I updated on the OTA Froyo update, is this when yours vanished?

    It didn't happen immediately after updating, its probably been about a week or two since the update. Is this some kind of known bug in froyo? Are there any apps out there that can restore/read the old backup from the SD card?

    I know it's irritating to say 'I don't have this problem' - but froyo hasn't affected any of my data (unbranded, on O2) - so maybe it's something else?

    I don't know, seems to have happened to two other people in this thread, mine is also unbranded on VF, I got an email from HTC support saying Froyo does wipe all your data including texts when it updates, but oddly enough it didn't happen to me immediately after the update. :thinking:

    This has just happened to me 12h after updating, why the suddenness? I have them all backed up on the sd card I just cannot find any way to restore the backup, when I restore to factory settings there is no option to restore anything but I mount the phone to my PC as external storage and I can see the backup sitting there - why can't froyo?

    About 10 minutes ago my phone sounded with it's sms message tone, but there was no new message there.

    A few minutes later I checked my phone and all my messages were gone!

    Remembering the wise words of "The IT Crowd" ("Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on again?"), I did so and miraculously all my messages came back.

    Well almost ... no sign of the message that made the phone tone 10 minutes ago.

    This is the 2nd time this happened to me. This time I received a message. I look on my phone, no notice. I go into my messages inbox and everything is gone. Through the website of mobile vikings I could see which nr sent me a msg but it's not a nr from my contacts.

    Is there nothing more known about this.
