Your phone only keeps so many messages based on a setting and then it deletes them, but it shouldn't wipe all of them out.
Did you happen to go on a cache / program data clearing spree in your: Settings > Applications menu?

I agree that I don't think it should delete all of them, and I don't think it ever happened to me before I was rooted and running a custom ROM. Now I don't know that I run a ROM long enough to generate a list of text messages that long.
BTW, you could always get a Google Voice # and use that for your text messages and they will be backed up with your Google account. The only downsides are having to give all of your contacts a new number to text and it doesn't do MMS.

I had something similar happen to me back in November. I was using the stock messaging app. Opened it up and everything was gone. Only thing I can figure out is that Google Translate had been updated that day. Don't know if that caused it.
I started using Handcent after that. I haven't had a problem since then, but who knows.HTC Evo 4G
