I've been using Resco Locker and DBCacheTool for months, so I didn't think they had anything to do with it. Never happened any other time.

    I think I'll use filez to edit the messages db to remove that strange message and see what happens (I can always restore).
    What happens is, your "max chunk size" had got down to a very low level. (I've seen cases where mine was at 100+KB.) And when the text message comes in, the NVFS cache will try to cache the whole inbox. Except this time, your inbox is likely larger than the cache was able to accomodate, and therefore the cache spits it back out. But it has nowhere to spit it out to, and therefore you "lose" the inbox messages.

    Low dbcache may have been low at the time (I was using TomTom, which always drops largest free chunk down to a real small amount). But my Inbox isn't that big. And when I use filez to view the msgs db, I can see the missing msgs. They just don't appear in my Inbox (or any other box).

    Yes. It bumps up the total free to 10 megs and max chunk to 6 megs (from as low as total of 1 meg and max chunk of 600 K, say after running BBVFS).

    Anyone know if Sprint's 1.12/1.12a have something like this implimented in them?

    I'm running 1.12 and 1.12a was only an E911 update. Neither has the better cache manager from the Cingular 1.17 update

    DBcache tool at one point threw my 650 into a fun reset loop that was only excapable via a hard reset. Not exactly my idea of useful. I wish someone would create a simpler iteration of this that was just - clear the cache and thats it. My guess is that there many more issues involved that prevent such a solution.
