Unhappy What the...? All my text messages randomly deleted?

I have no idea what happened, at some point during the chargers/broncos game, my text messages apparently got so bored with the AFC West that they just left.

I have a rooted Evo 4G...was there an OTA update or something? Anyone else experience this?

Also, any suggestions as to how I can get them back?


Thanks

Re: What the...? All my text messages randomly deleted?

When I was on the stock rooted rom (3.29, odexed), I had this happen to me with the stock messaging app. I got a force close, and when the messaging app was reopened, all my messages were gone. I think the messaging database can only hold so many sms/mms before it purges itself. I just started using CM6, and using the aosp messaging app, so I'm not sure what that limit is.

Not sure if using Handcent will get around that issue, or not. I know before I went to CM, I had quite a few texts saved.

From the messaging click menu>settings. Check to see if you have the option to Delete old messages. I have that option but I'm using a custom ROM.

It happened to me once too, running stock ROM. I thought it had something to do with Swype. Hasn't happened again fortunately.

You can got to http://pictures.sprintpcs.com and recover those gifts if they're not too old. If you need help let me know.
