    Use app Backup Everything.
    Works like a charm. My DINC is being replaced today due to overheating and random restarts. Have used Backup Everything to restore after numerous factory resets ,,,

    I had this just randomly happen with mine the other day, it even wiped the ones that I had locked, I don't know why. It was weird.

    This hasn't happened to me recently, but twice in the time that I've had the phone (since last July), it's just randomly and without warning obliterated all of my SMS messages, leaving me with a completely empty inbox.

    Do I have to be rooted?

    you can get sms backup + app, that works nicely and i think you have the option to back them up to sd card or to gmail account.

    there's another app called... sms backup and restore. think it does the same thing or only backs up to gmail.

    edit

    and backup everything does not require root.

    Is there any way to get them back if you didn't do any type of backup?

    do you have the delete old messages setting turned on? how many sms messages were there in each conversation? 200 400 800?

    if there were copious amounts of sms messages your phone may have deleted them to free up necessary system memory. if this is not the case and you have delete old messages turned on or there weren't that many messages per thread...i don't know what it is. i've never had this problem on any of my androids. and never on my Inc specifically
