Check to see how long your mail is configured for retention.

Open your in-basket. Press the menu button, and select "options".

Scroll to the bottom and the last option is "keep messages". You can set this for anywhere from 15 days to forever.

SOURCE: Won't delete text messages!

OK, after reading that some people fix their issues by taking out the battery and then putting it back it, I tried it and it worked! I am sure it will happen again and there has to be another way to clear them, but this works for now.

Hope you have the same results!

SOURCE: My Blackberry delete my texts and call logs automatically. Please

the trouble is that you have used all of the memory on your phone to check it go to the little tool symbol that looks like a wrench and then go to status check to see how much free files you have if it says zero you will need to delete some unwanted files most of the time its if you have a lot of ringtone or music but you can also get a memory card after you selete some files turn the phone off and take the battery out and replace it repeat the steps to see how much free files you have then

This might happen because Media settings may contribute to low memory capacity.
Modify the Device Memory Limit settings by completing the following steps:-
1) On the BlackBerry smartphone, click Media.
2) Select a media application.
3) press the menu, and click Options.
4) Set the Device Memory Limit to the lowest setting field.
5) press the menu key, and click Save.

Random deleting


This means that you have too much memory in your phone, so it automatically makes its own memory. To fix this you need to delete some of your pictures and ringtones to add memory. I used to have this problem too! Hope this helps!

Blackberry Pearl automatically deleting messages


I actually had this problem a LOT in the past, it got so bad that I would get a message and it would INSTANTLY delete. Before I could even see who it was from, it would be gone. Then I looked for hours trying to find a solution, and found one. I haven't had the problem since, unless I have nearly a month's worth of texts in my phone. The problem is that your device memory is too full. If you have an SD card in your phone, I highly recommend moving any photos on your device memory over to the card. If not, then I HIGHLY recommend getting one, they are wonderful. If you do not have an SD card, and your budget is too small to get one, then delete any pictures on your device memory you dont need, or copy them over to your PC so you dont lose them, and try and keep your memory as empty as possible. Also if it happens a lot and bugs you, then every couple of days go in and empty out your message inbox also.
If this doesnt help then I dont know.

Texts and call logs deletes themselves every couple minutes


This is a known software issue on the Pearl, which can be fixed with a software update. You can download the latest software (currently the 4.5 software) from either www.blackberry.com or www.vzam.net/blackberry

My phone and text messages


This issue is happening because the device memory is low. When the device's memory is low, the BlackBerry's Low Memory Manager kicks in and starts removing call logs and/or messages to clear space.

The link below shows some ways to free up memory on the BlackBerry device:

Missing text messages in blackberry pearl


I also have had this problem with my Blackberry Pearl. It has nothing to do with your SD memory card. First and foremost, blackberry shortchanged the pearl when it came to onboard memory size. You'll find this out when all of a sudden your call logs, text messages (SMS & MMS) and emails are deleted. When you receive a call it shows in your call log for only about a half hour and gets deleted again. To verify that it is a memory issue, go to options and click on status. If your file free is at 0, you need to free up some memory.

If you text message alot, this can happen quite frequently. Especially with MMS messages which use up alot more memory. Open your messages folder, click the menu key and click General Options. Make sure your phone is set to keep messages for either 15 days or 30 days. Also another thing is to make sure in your Camera options is that all pictures get saved to your memory card. If your pictures get saved to the phones memory, you will always have this problem until they are deleted or moved to your memory card. If you downloaded any games or applications to your phone, this can also be the problem. They make plenty of games and apps for the Pearl but didn't give the phone enough memory to use it all without eventually locking up the phone. This was my problem. I had a few games and a couple applications like Yahoo Go and Sudoku that I deleted and it helped out alot with my memory issues.

There are alot of other things you can do to help free up some memory but it would best if you just call blackberry tech support for your service provider and let them talk you thru all the steps. I've been very happy with T-Mobiles Blackberry tech support because they are separate from the normal customer service line. I've hardly ever had to wait to speak to a tech unlike the regular customer service which can take FOREVER!

I like the Pearl but these issues can certainly frustrate anyone that doesn't know how to deal with them.
