All of a sudden all of the conversations in my messages app were reduced to the very last message sent (either by myself or the other) for each conversation. I found it very odd as I didn't mess with any settings or purposely delete any conversations. Now I turned my phone off and on again and every single conversation was completely deleted and not even in the application any more. I am on an iPhone 5S that has recently started slowing down and acting up with minor glitches. Does anyone know how/why this happened and if I can recover the conversations that were there before?? Thanks. iPhone 5s, iOS 9.2
