Glad I'm not the only one.
I sent my buds a few small, 10 second videos the other night while out on the town.
(Hoochies dancing, etc. and NO don't request I send them to you...lol).
My SMS/Texting slowed to a crawl, to the point I restarted my phone a few times.
I deleted the messages/threads with the videos and it's back to smoking fast.
I think I'll call Verizon sometime this week to report the bug. Nothing is going to get fixed long term unless we let them know!
Doesn’t look like anyone has a solid answer to this. It makes me feel better I’m not the only one experiencing the issue though. Last night I was opening a SMS and it started to crawl. As I was typing the reply, and I’m not a fast typer, the delay caused the words to be almost 2 words behind my typing. I finally re-started and it worked fine.
This is my major issue with this phone. If this can get fixed I will be pretty content with everything.
I have this problem right now, tried to SMS a couple of photos yesterday, and to post a couple of photos to Facebook. The photos were "too large" to send, and the phone automatically resized it, and I had a failure when I sent the photos to Facebook. Since then my messaging has started to crawl. Anyone found a fix yet? Looks like this happens when we try to send photos. Did not have this problem when I had the Palm Pre.
It is a problem with the message store on the phone, so all SMS apps will have the same problem. The problem is related to having a large number of messages. I had about 4000 total and any messaging app was unable due to force closes and slowdowns. I emailed HTC and they said that they don't support a large number of messages, and only support up to a few hundred. My OG Droid had no problem with 5000 messages, and this one freezes at just a couple thousand.
Mine will lag if I have a bunch (and I'm talking 10 to 20) test messages with pictures and videos. Those seem to be the killer.
It'll lag and slow down. Delete those messages, and it's rocket ship like again.
I noticed the more conversations and more texts/pics the more lag I get with my SMS programs. I use the default HTC text program, and do notice it. When I delete all or most of my messages, it seems snappy again. I limited my conversations to 200, then to auto delete after that...maybe I should change it to even lower than that?
I do notice it, but so far it hasn't been enough to cause a problem for me.
Having this same issue on my TB. Happens about every 3 days or so. Once it asked me to wait for the app to respond and it cleared, but most of the time it seizes up bad enough that restart is required. Very annoying! Had the Eris and Incredible before the TB. Stored multi-thousands of sms/mms with no issues in the stock sms app.
I had really really really bad keyboard lag on my t-bolt! I fixed it the first time by deleting over a thousand pic/text messages. The second time it did it, it wouldn't stop lagging, once I uninstalled Juice Defender, and restarted it worked fine! If you have juice defender I would uninstall and restart and see if that works, because my t-bolt HATED juice defender with a passion
The HTC Thunderbolt is the first ever 4G phone on Verizon Wireless. The name is no surprise... you can expect the Thunderbolt to have lightning speeds as the carrier ushers in a new era of mobile power.
