    Hey guys! Longtime lurker. First time poster. I have searched everywhere to see if anyone is having the same issue as me. Ever since I updated to iOS 8 on the release date all my text messages are missing except for messages that were sent from the day of the upgrade. Has anyone else come across this issue? Fix? I need all my messages they are very important, some of this stuff dates back to 2009. I do have a backup before I updated to iOS 8.

    I have an iPhone 5s 32GB.

    That's a new feature in iOS 8 you can disable it in messages settings
