If you’re anything like me and have been using your Android phone for years, you’ve amassed a lot of messages. As I’m sure you know by now, Android 9 Pie has had some issues with disappearing text messages. But don’t worry: You can try a few things before giving up on your phone or switching to an iPhone (although we’re not happy about that either). Here are some steps to solve this problem once and for all.

Over the past several months, Android users worldwide have reported bizarre smartphone problems. Their text messages are disappearing from their inboxes.

If you have an Android phone, you’ve seen this problem. It’s a common issue for many people on all phones and OS versions. The point is not limited to just one messaging app or carrier—it affects any number of apps that send text messages, including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and SMS Texting.

Here’s how it usually works: if someone sends you a message using the apps above (or another third-party app), their name will appear in your notifications bar with the option to call them back or view their message thread. However, when trying to access those messages from your inbox or recent conversations list—as well as other social media sites like Google+ or Twitter—you’ll find that they’re gone! They were sent but never received by anyone else outside that conversation group either, so no matter how many times they try sending out their messages again (“resending failed,” “sending again,” etc.), nothing shows up on other devices either.”

The issue is most widespread among users of Android 9, aka Android Pie, and it is affecting phones made by many different companies.

The issue is most widespread among users of Android 9, aka Android Pie. It affects many companies, including Samsung, LG, and Google phones. The problem has been reported by users worldwide and across multiple brands — including Pixel 2 owners who have installed the latest security patch for April 2019.

Users report that deleted text messages reappear within minutes or seconds after being deleted from a conversation in the Messages app on their phone. However, when they try to delete them again within this window, they cannot do so.

If you have fallen victim to this glitch, there is currently no single solution that will work for everyone, but there are a few possible fixes that may work for you depending on your phone model, carrier, OS, and messaging app.

To try out solutions that might help resolve the issue on your device:

You’ll start by ensuring that your messages are gone. You can view your deleted messages in a separate menu or folder, depending on your phone model and OS.

If you can’t find your messages in the usual place, check other folders. If your phone has a separate trash folder, that’s where they’ll likely be. Some phones have this feature built-in, while others require downloading third-party apps.

If all else fails and you still can’t find your deleted texts and need to know how to recover them:

If your messages aren’t there, try checking if they’re saved in the cloud. Some messaging apps will save your texts to sync between devices or be restored if something happens to your phone. However, this feature is often available only in premium versions of the app.

If you want to see which apps have this feature, open any text conversation and check out the “Options” menu at the top of your screen. From here, you’ll see a list of all installed apps that offer cloud storage for messages (many will also provide other features like reading receipts). To enable it for an app that doesn’t yet have it enabled by default, tap “Turn on/off” next to its listing—this may require signing into Google or iCloud first!

One last resort for some Samsung users is simply restarting their phones regularly. You don’t need to reboot your phone very often — once a month should be sufficient — but if you’re dealing with disappearing text messages, then consider restarting once a week or even more frequently until Samsung fixes the issue with a future update.

If you need help solving the problem, contact your carrier and see if they can troubleshoot the case for you. If that still doesn’t work and you’ve tried all of our suggestions above, it might be time to contact Samsung’s customer service department directly at +1 (800) 726-7864

Check for missing text messages in other folders on your phone.

Some phones may have a separate folder for deleted messages, which can be helpful if you know where you went to delete them but need help finding the folder on your phone.

The biggest takeaway from all this is that there needs to be a single solution for fixing the disappearing text messages bug on Android. Try out different fixes until one of them works for you because sometimes it is just a matter of rebooting your phone or checking another folder on your device where those messages may have been saved by mistake. While we wait for Samsung and Google to roll out an official fix with their next update later this year, we hope these tips will help you regain control over your messaging app!
