    i just did a hard reset and when it loaded all my texts were gone even though their was still a number one in front of my sms icon, so i then just did a normal power off and on and when it turned back on, the 1 infront of my sms icon was gone and also my messages were still gone.

    i had nothing important on the sms since i clear all my messages at night, but is this something with the new firmware?

    i bet no one else had this problem.

    i don't think its hardware, but still wtf apple has such weird bugs.

    When your phone does a hard reset it won't go back to like it was when you turned it off. It's normal.

    I done hard resets before and my texts were never erased. Hard reset is when u hold power button and home button

    at seems weird that texts would get erased since they wouldn't before. Not that I do hard restarts that often. Anyone else ever get this

    why did they delete this time around?

    software glitch?

    Can happen - I went from UK to Brussels and back. DId a little roaming in Brussels. Lost all my texts when going back to the UK side. No idea why roaming would have done it.

    Text messages are one of the many things stored in the backups that iTunes does. If you need to get them back, restore from backup... hopefully you haven't run another backup since then, cause if you did they're no longer accessible. Of course, any text messages received since your last backup will not be restored.

    ^ i dont back up my phone everytime i plug it in. unless itunes does it automatically

    they weren't important texts.

    like i said i delete my sms texts everynight, all of them.

    i have yet to have a really important one to save, if i need to save something i email it to myself.

    my concern was that my phone is messed up or something, because i did a hard reset and the texts were gone and a number one was in front of the sms app and then i did a normal power off and on and the number one was gone and the texts were still gone too.
