Default SMS messages disappeared after reboot

Please Login to Remove!


Today I tried to get on the Internet with my BB but received a message that there was insufficent network coverage. Normally when this happens I have to reboot my phone and it fixes things. So I rebooted, and when it came back up, the display indicated there were two new SMS messages to be read. I tried to click on the SMS icon, but it wouldn't open. After numerous attempts of trying to retrieve the messages with no luck, I thought my phone had frozen up so I rebooted again. This time when the phone was back up, the two text messages were gone. I was able to get into my Inbox through the SMS icon, but there were only old messages in there.

Has this happened to anyone and is there a fix to retrieve those two messages I was never able to read?

Pull the battery for a total OS reload.
SMS messages should be in the inbox if they are not indications of old messages. It is possible the reboot simply messed up the indicator.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button
