I just upgraded from an LG Lucid to an HTC One M8 and also have a Samsung Galaxy tablet. On my tablet, I used to be able to delete messages and it wouldn't adversely affect anything on my phone. I did that today, and without my knowing it, my phone and tablet were synced and everything I deleted from my tablet deleted itself from my phone, though I actually needed it on my phone and not on my tablet. Is there a way to retrieve these messages? And keep the two connected but not delete messages on the other device? It's kind of a huge inconvenience.
I hope you're enjoying all the other aspects of your new phone, girlinatardis. Verizon Messages is meant to provide you a great way to syncronize your messages over multiple devices. Do you have the Verizon Messages application installed on your new M8 or are you also using a 3rd party messaging application? Did you save any of the messages on the phone before deleting them?

I'm only using Verizon Messages, and I thought I had my phone set up to automatically save and sync to my Cloud, but apparently it didn't.
Thanks for the clarification! You can use the Verizon Cloud to back up your data so this doesn't happen again in the future. Visit http://vz.to/1gEuy5K for complete details.
