Exclamation HELP! Text Messaging error force close

Hi can anyone help me?

Suddenly about 2 days ago, every time i text a message, i get an error when the message goes through which says:

SORRY!
The application Messaging
(process com.android.mms)
has stopped unexpectedly.
Please try again.

It asks me to force close. I read somewhere that it is due to having low space on the on-board memory so i deleted apps and texts, to no avail.

Is there anything I can do?

Oh another thing, this problem always seems to send a blank text that doesn't get sent to 1 person in my contacts after every error for some reason - if that helps hmm.

Try this ... with the phone ON and at the home screen ... Pull the Battery and the SIM ... let the phone set fro a couple of minutes ... put SIM and battery back in an power up normally ... Try send a text msg ... with the phones default messaging program ... I assume you are not using a third party messaging app ?

Question

Hi, I'm also facing this problem. I've tried taking out the battery, etc., and nothing seems to work.

Any advice?

I can't understand what to do with the oCERT Advisories page. Is there anything actionable there?

Thanks in advance!

I had this problem: every time I tried to send a message, the "closed unexpectly" error would pop up.

I looked at previous threads in the messaging app. One of them had about 20 blank, unsent messages. I deleted all of them, and no longer saw the error. Hope that helps!

This is on a Samsung Moment running Android 1.5.

Thank you hotani for your advice. I did the same thing after reading your post - I checked my previous threads in the messaging app and found about 50 unsent messages to a person I hadn't texted in quite some time. I deleted them all and the 'Force close' messages went away. My messaging app was actually bad enough that I think I wasn't even receiving text messages. This is on a T-Mobile G1. Thanks again for the help.

I have the same problem but everytime it force closes I restart my phone and as soon as I turn it back on it sends random old messages to people I have previously texted. How do I stop it?

Also, how do you delete unsent messages? Or better yet, how do you know if you have unsent messages?

I had the same problem on my Moto Droid 1 with OS 2.2.1 and fixed it by doing the following:
  • Open Google native Messenging app (the original Messenging App installed on the phone)
  • Select Menu button
  • Select Delete Threads
Problem solved!

P.S. This deletes all of your old messenging threads, but nothing in this Post worked and I was ready to do a Factory Reset, so I can deal with it

Default fixed it

Had a customer come in with a similar issue getting the error code process com.android.mms error everytime we'd try to send take a picture and send it via mms. Eventually wound up just doing a factory reset after trying to go through the settings and it started working again. Perhaps a little extreme but the customer was able to send pics again so she was happy. Not sure if this will help but it did wind up working again.
