Re: help blackberry curve 9300 automatically deletes my sms

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Here is a KB that discusses that situation:

  • KB14213 Call logs, SMS text messages, and email messages are deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone

Hopefully it contains something useful! There also are multiple existing threads on this site that discuss that exact error...your review of those might prove useful, and a search of this site, using the error message, error code, or symptom, should reveal all applicable existing threads to you.

Good luck and let us know!
