    It's normal, and the only thing you can do to prevent it is delete other texts. Since iOS 5 there is a lower limit on total text messages stored.
    (Someone correct me if I'm wrong here.)

    i have barely any texts in my inbox and it is only happening for this one person, for some other contacts i have over 2 years of messaging and for this contact i only have about a week :/

    I have seen this happen to me randomly. Maybe not in the same way though?

    For example i got a text message from my fiance, had maybe 1 second to look at it after i unlocked my phone and it just went away. I had to ask her to send it again so i could read what it said.

    it has however only happened with her, and its usually just for one text, i don't ever get huge spans of time deleted.
