    Default Messaging App Freeze on Message Delete

    When I try to delete a particular thread in the messaging app, the app freezes until I restart my phone. Any messages sent to me during this time won't show up even after the restart. Does anyone know why this happens or if there's any remedy to it?

    Happens to me as well when I delete a huge thread, but mine doesnt glitch for that long. I just let it sit for a minute and it works fine.

    Same issue here.. never had it freeze up for more than a minute or so though.

    The best way I have found to deal with this is with an app called Delete old messages. It is free. Basically it allows you to delete however many messages you want. It still take a long time to delete them, but at lease you can see how it is progressing and you can cancel it at any time to continue deleting messages later.

    i had this problem last night with handcent. my phone would reboot itself cuz it got over loaded. instead of just deleting it and going thru that whole mess again, i long pressed and went to force delete. it took some time, but worked like a charm with no reboot.
