    Hey guys! Today my Droid just decided to completely delete my entire Inbox. This is the second time this has happened, the first time I thought it was due to Handcent but this time it happened with Handcent uninstalled.

    Am I the only one this has happened to?


  2. No it's not. I had over 1500 messages deleted instantly when i power cycled my droid. I don't know why this happened. I was also using Home++ at the time, gave up on that.

    This seems to happen randomly as I did not power sync or power off my Droid. Very strange and frustrating.

    Happened to me too, me thinks the OS has a slight issue with it.

    BG, I work up in Perrysburg Ohio atm.

    And it hasn't done it to me since that first time, but I am using SMS backup to backup all my texts to my gmail account now.

    mine did that, but in sms settings just uncheck delete old messages as limits are reached & it shouldn't anymore, if it does then idk its a tech problem i guessss

    ^ That actually makes sense - if it is marking 'old' based upon calendar dates, then it may *seem* random but in fact it is doing it on a set date....

    its if you have the limit set, idk i set my limit for like a thousand, and I guess it was deleting it when I got a thousand total messages, not per conversation. now I have no limit & it hasn't happened since :)
