    Just noticed today that i'm missing a text thread from a particular contact. This is practically a new problem for me for samsung coz usually i have problems with group messages which nobody can help me with, even samsung people itself. That contact is still in some group messages & i can see her text but not in individual threads. Please help! I'm really considering of changing to other phones because of these problems.

    The only thing I can suggest if you had sync Samsung backup regularly can try to restore messages and see if they come back

    Hi, you posted in the forum for the original (and ancient) Galaxy Note phone. Which Note version do you have, so we can move this thread to the proper subforum?

    Is it possible that you might have mistakenly deleted or archived that text thread? I don't know about the Samsung Messages app, but with the Google Messages app, it's relatively easy to inadvertently swipe away a text thread (which only archives it, instead of deleting it).

    My last backup for messages was a month ago. So new messages will be lost if i restore to that date?

    On the main messages screen, tap the Menu button and see if there's an Archived option.

    I moved this to the Note9 forum.

    You don't mention which carrier you use. Some of the carriers' messaging apps will give you the ability to restore messages from their server.

    For example, in Verizon's Message+, hit the Settings menu, then Account, and finally Restore Messages. You'll get the choice to restore from your SD card or 90 days of messages from their server.

    Your carrier's app may have the same feature. Oh, and at least on Verizon's app, it works even if you don't normally use the carrier app.
