I just realized that my iPhone text/SMS history is being automatically deleted. I text a lot with a few of my friends, and I noticed that at least for two of my friends, the old history is deleted. For one of them the history only goes back 3 months.
It seems like there's a maximum limit on texts per conversation.
My iPhone is 3GS running iOS 5.0.1 (non-jailbroken, but with baseband preserved )
Could someone shed some light here?

AFAIK there is no limit on the number of SMS stored on Iphone. You didn't happen to transfer your old chat history from an old phone manually did you? This happened to me when it transferred from an old backup via SSH and hadn't set the permissions correctly

I've been using this iPhone for over 2 years now. The history that used to be on this same iPhone is disappeared. Old messages still get cleared one-by-one as I get new message from the same person.
