I recently had to have my phone replaced due to hardware issues. Before switching phones, I backed up all my messages and cal logs to the  Verizon Cloud then restored everything onto the new device.

It's been about three weeks since and have just noticed that my messages don't start from the first message I received from many of my contacts. In one case, about five of the initial messages I had are missing but everything after was restored. I did not manually delete any of the messages.

Hello.

No. I can't view my messages on MyVerizon but when I try to view them from Coud, it directs to Messenger+ which is where ll my messages are  on my phone.

Do you still have your previous device? If so, are you able to see all the messages on your old device?

No. I mailed the device back a few days after receiving the new one. I had all the messages including the very first few that are now missing on the old device. I had viewed them the week before I got the replacement device.

We'd like to help you get those messages back. Do you have Messages+ downloaded on your replacement device?
