So I had about 0.5 btc in my mycelium wallet. I wanted to move some to another wallet so I did a test transaction of a small amount (like £50) and that was still awaiting confirmation.

In the meantime I decided to move all the rest to my chosen Exchange where I could trade it more easily and to set up a Send, using their QR code etc. It kept getting "rejected by the network". Anyway I then occurred to me that maybe this was due to the small amount not completing and I so stupidly selected the option to stop rebroadcasting  that amount. At that point the wallet appeared to empty - apart from small amount of money. The c.0.5 BTC I had has now vanished. There are not transactions showing in Mycelium for it, it's just the balance doesn't show it.

I can't work out what is happening. Is it still there but I'm looking at the wallet incorrectly somehow? Has it gone to the exchange but not showing as a transaction? Did I accidentally cancel something. I don't really know what to do at this point so some help would be handy -thanks.

You chose to stop broadcasting the TX's, but you never got the bitcoin back in your wallet - correct?

They're probably still being broadcasted, or your wallet isn't updated (?)..

Do you have the adress you sent them to, or the adress you sent them from? ( Or simply the TX id of the transaction).

Sort of, I THOUGHT I'd stopped the rebroadcasting of an earlier small amount and that the larger amount had been rejected  and so wasn't being broadcast but maybe got that wrong.

I have the address I sent them to and nothing is showing on that from me. I can't find the address I sent them from as Mycelium changes the account address everytime a transaction is made and so the address under m y account is one I've not seen. I put that into blockchain info and it shows no activity or balance on it at all.

I think you must be right that the wallet is out of sync somehow.

Without more information, i can't really do anything or help you.

I'm assuming you're using Mycelium 2.0? What happens when you go to your unspent outputs? There's nothing there?

Try to import your seed into Electrum maybe, and see if that works? ( Seed derivation between the wallets might be different but i believe it was possible to impot Mycelium seeds into Electrum, just not vice versa.)
