Lost all my SMS's

sorry if not the right place,

I upgraded my Android in December, to an Alcatel, it's ok, running Android 10.

I transferred all my stuff over. But for some weird reason I lost EVERY single SMS, including archive all gone ?

I looked at my phone, and I saw a SMS from a freind, it was in lock, unlocked it and was prompted to start a new chat, EVERYTHING gone, I pulled the battery, pulled the sim, tried texting and receiving all worked but NO SMS's all wiped, there was a google backup drive running but it didnt save anything.

I ran a few programs of the net to see if I could retrieve anything, not even anything deleted ? couldnt find a bean.

Luckily I still had my old phone so copied my old SMS's but all my texts since late dec to now gone, didnt even get a warning or anything to swipe ?

everything else on my phone is there, ringtones, pics, settings contacts..

Now I have to backup my phone as well as my PC sheesh !

I lost a lot of "sentimental texts" nothing that I'll loose my job over or anything like that.

I'm concerned now, if I don't know what happened it could happen again...
Battery was good, I did have a "sd card error popping up" but I researched that, it comes up when you shut donw your phone.

I had shut down my phone the night before, as I was nearly on a dead battery, and wanted not to have a dead phone tillI put it on charge.

Any ideas ?

Try to install an alternative SMS-app and choose as standard app.
Refresh SMS inbox after first start, then the server reloads and should send the stored SMS' again to the new app.
Had an equal case with my Android phone into the past and that had helped.

I agree - try another app - it's free and easy to try and then switch back.

Also - did you get a new PHONE or just upgrade the Android? If a new phone, did you get a new SIM too?
