Samsung galaxy S force closed SMS messaging then deleted all of them


Feb 6, 2011
Hi there, I had just read a text message earlier and a pop up box appeared saying something like it was responding and said Force Close, so I clicked it as there was nothing else to click and it deleted all my SMS messages, all my threads and had no message conversations in my inbox, tried turning fine off and back on again but still the same, they were gone... Does anybody know how to get them all back as I had saved messages that were really important in there!!?? Please help me!! x

So far I haven't found any examples of this happening on Galaxy S-series phones with only a few text messages saved. Each time, so far, it seems to happen to someone with a lot of messages saved. Makes me wonder whether or not there's a coding issue in the text messaging app on the Galaxy S phones...
