I haven't had the update show up yet for Marshmallow, so I am still on the same system version I have been for ages. Haven't installed any new apps. No crashes of apps or anything else that I've noticed. Just went to send a text and ALL my texts are gone. I don't generally delete them or clear them out, but I'm also not a teenager. I only started texting regularly about 2 years ago when I got my Turbo - prior to that I was paying per text and tried to avoid it.

I am using the stock "Messaging" app (not the Verizon Message+ or Hangouts). I checked the Verizon Cloud app and it claims I have over 4000 messages saved, however when I try to restore them (Tools - Content Restore) it spends about 2 minutes "restoring", claims it is finished and yet, I still don't have any of my messages on my phone. I tried switching to Hangouts and back - no messages in either app. The "Messaging" app does not show up under Settings-Apps, so I can't clear the app cache.

Any thoughts? Any idea WHY this happened so I can avoid it in the future? Any ideas on how to get my old messages back from Verizon Cloud?

Try switching to the Verizon Messages+ app and see if it restores whatever it has.
