Seems I am back at it with Messages weirdness. Here goes:
Of ALL times this is NOT where I have to fight with their fruit’s software (going to be in the hospital with no visitors allowed for about a week), I need it to “just work.” So I communicate a LOT in Messages, I have a ton of “conversations” that I have with various individuals and a bunch if group ones. Got a cMP, iPad and an ifone. Always use iCloud. This morning I have a few words with a friend of mine… on my tablet. Boot up the cMP, make the coffee, blah, blah. Want to send another thought to the person, so I fire up the app on the desktop… HOLY SHIT. ALL of my many “conversations” are totally gone, BUT I do have the snippet I did this morning. BUT that was a very long standing “conversation” going back literally years. I’m freaking out…
Check my tablet and phone (iOS up to date on both, 13.5). BOTH places DO have all my stuff. Time to geek-test. I send something to that person from the desktop… it shows up on both the fone & tablet. Interesting. Sign out of icloud, then re-sign back in. Still no “conversations.”. Reboot the machine, nada. Now 6 hours later, the desktop is still devoid of any conversations. Anything I add in this “piece” of conversation on any device shows on all devices.
Now I have 2 factor with the fruit. Signing out then back in makes it such that when I tried to sign into my account via a browser, it sent a code to input for verification (says I was using a “new” device). AND it keeping with sloppy software, the code pops up on my desktop, where I had been trying to sign into my account! So doing the icloud log out then log in seems to have caught server attention.
It gets weirder. If I do a search, it finds the keyword way back in this “thread” like from 3/20 (but all I see it what started at 9:35AM today). BUT what I see on the desktop starts at 9:35AM this morning. BUT I can’t search on any of my other “conversations” it says “conversation not selected.”
Does ANYONE have a clue what is going on here?
