Angry Is it possible for hacking?

Please Login to Remove!

I saved some VERY important messages on my phone. Like actually hit save, it saved them, and today when I went and looked, all the ones that I NEED are gone. Is it possible that someone could have hacked into my phone and erased those specific messages? And if so, is it that easy to get to my information on my phone? I'm really stressed and really mad about this. I NEED THOSE TEXTS!!! Please give me some info!!! And can
I possibly get them back?! Thanks

It is far more likely that your BB ran out of memory.

Options / Status will tell you the free space.

Unless you made a backup using Desktop Managers, the messages are gone.

I have plenty of memory. Some parts on the texts are there, but the stuff I need isnt. I have messages saved from June on it.

Yes I looked in the saved folder...dang. Thats what I am saying...Parts of the texts are there, not all of them, like the words I specifically need. Give me a minute on the memory thing. I cant find it. Lame, I know. I find stuff, then go and look for it, and cant remember where I found it. I feel really stupid typing this. thanks guys...lol

Ok, maybe it was memory..like I said...Lame. BUT....Why would it delete certain parts? I saved the messages like 5 times with added responses and only my texts sent were saved

It is highly unlikely that your device was hacked! If you don't have it password protected then anyone could access the device!

Also, go into Messages, hit the Menu key, and go to Options. Under General Options, at the bottom of the screen, make sure you have messages set to be saved "Forever". Otherwise, when a message reaches the time limit you have specified, it gets automatically deleted.

Or simply forward them as an email and keep them there.
