Deleted SMS


All my SMS'es were deleted ...

( No backup yet :-( so that mean sthey are truly gone ...)

Found Article ID: KB25784 but it's not really the same.

The SMS'es aren't even draft, they are simply wiped out ....

I wonder how this could have happened?

A result of phone being on and battery power was over and out ??

Normally when that happened: date was set to date of power off.


Now when powering up again: date was November 2045 !!


Any ideas on how to avoid this from happening (apart from making the (obvious) backup!) ???

Re: Deleted SMS

Messages get deleted when memory gets low. Even with lots of free memory the device will run down to 0MB, depending on what apps are installed. You need to reboot the device regularly to make sure your memory doesn't go down to 0.

Re: Deleted SMS

In addition to John, always have a periodic back up of your device data in your computer. You also use BlackBerry Protect application (which is free and available in App World) that can back you device data like, contacts, Tasks, Memo, SMS texts etc.
