    I got into a habit of clearing it don't know why.

    It's basically restoring it right?

    If the clear is done in recovery, it is a reformat. I do that once a month.

    Thanks all. The Android 201 link was a great help. I had problems with stock message app and clearing cach e and data restored it. I guess it's a bit of magic.

    You could say that, but you could also say it's the wonders of Android and the level of control it gives you over your device.
