As yet I hven't found a difinitive answer to my query either. However my messages do seem to be staying now. But this is after I changed a whole lote of settings.
This is what I did step by step...
1> Ran desktop manager and connected my blackberry to do a full system update.
2> While in an individual SMS. Press your bb button and go to options. Set validity to max.
3> Go into your SMS folder so it shows your list of existing SMS. Press bb, options, general options. Right at the bottom is an option "Days to keep messages" set to forever. (This was previously set for me when mine were disappearing so not sure what it does.
4> Go back to your home screen and choose your Options icon.
5> Scroll down and select SMS. Look for "Validity Period", set to max.
6> Scroll down more and look for "Leave message on sim card", set this to no. (your sim card fills up and can only keep limited messages.
7> Pull the battery out the phone and leave it out a while (go have a cup of coffee). Then re-insert the battery, wait forever for the phone to boot up and then wait a few days to see if your messages stay or go.
Hope this helps, so far this is working for me...
