Why did my phone suddenly turn off and delete just some of my text messages?

After typing a text message I hit the send button and the phone instantly shut off. Didn't even power down, just shut off. When I turned it back on I only had 4 text messages on it. Weirder still, it was just 1 msg was from 2 days ago, 1 from 3 days ago, 1 from 4 days ago, and 1 from 5 days ago. Even the chains from those Msgs were gone. How and why would this, or could this, happen? Granted my phone is, as I refer to it, an old dial up stupid phone.  It has shut off on numerous occasions in the past, and never lost Msgs. But to only lose some, and be left with a pattern of Msgs is a little more than unusual, don't you think? Thoughts? Comments? Answers please?
