    Hi there! If anyone can help I'll be suuuuuuper grateful.

    Yesterday evening, my phone ran out of battery. When I turned it on again I tried to send a text message but I couldn't open the messaging application. So when I pressed the message icon on the home screen, it went black and then returned to the home screen. When I've tried afterwards, it sometimes gives me a message along the lines of "processcom.messaging.android needs to close" -- i can't remember it exactly but it's something like that - it only flashes up and then goes.

    Any ideas what I can do? People have told me they've sent me text messages but I'm not getting any notifications and can't open the messages at all. I use my phone for texts more than calls, so feeling a little paralysed!

    Thanks for any help at all!!!

    Try clearing messenger data
    Settings> applications> all> messenger> clear data

    Did you try downloading a third party messaging app from the market like handcent? Let me know if that works.

    Thanks so much for replying! I tried clearing the data but it hasn't helped. I didn't realise you could get third party messaging apps - will they pick up my normal texts? I'll have a go with one =)

    Argh - it doesn't work. It says the same - "The application Handcent SMS (process com.handcent.nextsms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

    But when I try again, nothing happens.

    Do you have your contacts backed up and your pictures saved to your computer. We may have to do a factory restore

    Go to settings> accounts> Google> select your google account> then check off all the boxes> hit sync now

    Or you can also open conacts app> menu button> >export to sd card. This will create a contacts file on your sdcard which you can later import
