    I was just in Messages and accidentally swiped to delete a threat...whoops. I've accidentally done this on my Mac before, and when I did, the full conversation thread came back when I started a new conversation with the same person. When I started a new conversation with the same person on my iPad, it came up totally black - the message history wasn't preserved. Does anyone know of a way to get this back? The thread is still seemingly intact on my Mac and iPhone.

    Slightly OT, but I wish they wouldn't make these threads so easy to accidentally delete...or at least give you the option of restoring conversations when you do...

    Restoring from a backup is the only way I can think of.

    The Mac has an option called "Save history when conversations are closed" that could be carried over to iOS.

    I could be wrong but I don't think it does, I have done this before where I have deleted a thread on my iPhone, started a new one and the history would show up but then when I close the app or lock the iPhone and go back into it, it doesn't show the history like it did when I created a new thread, it just show's the history on other devices.
