Message App (Standard one) keeps freezing then crashing

I've had my S2 for quite some time now, but this is the first time this has happened. Everytime I try to open the message application to check my MMS, it just freezes upon opening (with no messages displayed), and crashes.

Any cure for this?

Welcome to Android Central! Try going to the App Manager, select Messaging, Force Stop and Clear Cache. Now try again. If that doesn't work, and if you don't mind losing any saved texting threads, also tap Clear Data.
