I have a Galaxy s8 and am having the same issue. I just sent a text at 3:30pm and can't find it at all. It was an important message. How do I fix this? I checked and it looks like I'm updated.
I am having the same problem with my Galaxy Note 8. I receive text messages from a non saved contact. Only to go back to it a few hours later, GONE!! I need help, this cannot happen. My clients send me important information via text, and to have them vanish for no reason!!! I checked all my settings, I do not have "delete old messages" activated, it's off. Please help
I had this happening to a few random contacts and it was frustrating. The one thing in common with the contacts for whom my phone would not save text message history is when I viewed their Contact profile there was a What'sapp version of the contact. This is an option like Google, Phone, Samsung, etc. I am sure I could have figured out how to delete the what'sapp version of the contact, but I just deleted whstsapp and it solved my issue. I never contacted these particular contacts via what'sapp. I can't really explain how their what'sapp profile became part of my contacts. But after months of being frustrated by this, I cautiously optimistic I've resolved it.
I had only one conversation disappear. I don't remember deleting it, as I rarely do! I have a Samsung Galaxy LUNA pro. Also-- on my info for the device says it's a different model: Galaxy j3 pop (i think)
Should I be alarmed?
How do I change this ? Or is it one in the same??
Do you by chance also use a Samsung smart watch? I have finally figured out that if you delete messages from your watch, it deletes them from the phone as well.
So as long as you don't delete any messages from your watch, they will remain on your phone. It's unfortunate that Samsung hasn't fixed this yet, but that's what I have found. Good luck
