What happened to my text messages? My older conversations (more than 30 days old) disappeared, even though there fewer than 25 messages per conversation.

I have an iPhone 6, and while the initial text message screen shows the names of the people and the most recent text message, when I click on the name, the text messages are gone.

Lets get you the heelp needed, Vet2be! There is a setting that will alter how long your messages are kept for. This setting may be found under Settings > Messages > Message History - From there you may select 30 days, 1 year or Forever.

There is a setting to erase messages after 30 days, 1 year or never.   Did you have that setting set to 30 days?
