How to Restore Messages from Samsung Galaxy S6/Edge

By Emily Watson, Monday, July 06, 2015

"I purchased a Galaxy S6 on April 11th. On Friday April 17th I noticed that text messages that I receive would be viewable momentarily and then delete themselves. In the first week multiple updates occurred. The problem is intermittent. I powered off the phone and restarted it. The same issue has been happening every day since. I went to the AT&T store on Saturday and they told me this is a known issue and had me turn off the "Delete old messages" function. This did not improve the issue. How can I restore messages from my S6?" complained a user on the AT&T forum.
