9810 will not store messages older than 14 days since updating to OS 7.1
Hi - I have set it to keep messages forever, yet after 14 days old message (Yahoo, Hotmail, text messages, etc) are getting deleted. This started when I updated to 7.1 a few months ago. Any thoughts on how to stop this?

You could try going into your email account settings and seeing what it is set to. BlackBerry gives you the option to show messages from the sat X amount of days. To do so go into the email in box, hit the BlackBerry menu key and select options. from the options screen you will want to select "Message Display and Actions", now scroll to the bottom and look for the option that says "keep messages for". How many days does it say?

To remove them at a time of your choosing, you open your message folder (email or text) and highlight the messages you want to delete (you can highlight as many as you want at one time by holding down the shift key and scrolling down the list). It then gives you a choice of deleting on the handheld or both the handheld and server at the same time. If you click both, it will remove it from your mail server and you will not be able to pick it up on your pc if you use your computer for email as well. We leave all messages on our server as we need access to them from all of our devices. Good luck and I hope this helps.
Hi go1indr. Thanks for the response but this does not respond to my issue. My issue is that the messages only stay on my phone for 14 days. I would like them to stay on forever, but have no idea how to make that happen, despite the fact that I have forever marked.

I'm sorry my response didn't help. Unfortunately, other than the reply I posted, the only thing I can think to do is from the home screen, click the BB Menu Button and click on the option: "Show All Icons", then escape back. Once that is done, you will see a "Message Folder" that contains all of your messages, including emails (all accounts) and text messages. Open the Message folder and do as posted above--Options>Message Display>check forever on the box and save. Then from Home Screen menu, uncheck the "show all icons" command and that may save it. If that doesn't work I have no idea how to change it. The (text)Messages folder doesn't have the option to save on its option's page, only on the email options and calendar options so I hope this works fo you. Mine is set up like that and it works great. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
