    I have a Huawei Valiant from metroPCS and am not receiving texts from anyone. I was trying to free up space on my phone and tried deleting a message thread that was over 10,000 messages long and I think it might've messed something up. After around 20 minutes I got an error message saying something went wrong and thread was still there. That was 2 or 3 days ago and ever since then I haven't gotten any texts until now. The text I received was replying to something from last night and I know it was late because I was talking to that person through another means of communication shortly after I sent the text. Also, my brother said he has sent 4 texts since I tried deleting the long thread and i haven't received a single one of his. I use Go SMS Pro to text and I tried clearing the cache to that and to the default texting app my phone and restarted my phone there's still something wrong.

    Any help would be appreciated

    First back up your texts with SMS Backup & Restore. Then clear the data from your texting app. That should clear out all your texts. You'll have to learn how to read an xml file (it's text - just figure out the headers - in <> - that mark the start -<> - and end - </> - of a thread) to read the SMS B&R file and manually delete that long thread, then you can restore the file to the phone with SMS B&R. (Work on a copu of the file, and restore that, so if you mess something up, you still have the original, Never modify the original of a file that has important data.)
