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?
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.
