    Has anyone noticed that the whole Android platform, no matter what version or SMS app you use, sucks. Not the experience of reading or replying but things like SMS appearing in the wrong order and sometimes just not coming at all.

    But the most annoying thing is that no matter how hard I try Android wont delete a large tread of messages. It freezes up my phone, Force Closes the SMS app and then the Home screens are laggy and just down right ******ed until I soft reboot. Im growing extremely tired of this and its something that makes me think about getting an iPhone, Pre, or BB device.

    I think one big problem is, it sorts the SMS messages by the minute... which doesn't work well if multiple messages arrive in one minute.

    I also have big problems with my phone not sending messages due to "no network available" when I have at least 1 bar. THEN, instead of just automatically reconnecting to TMO and sending the message, my phone will pop up a list of networks (including AT&T, Verizon and Sprint as well as TMO) and ask me like some electronic ****** what cell network I subscribe to. As if this has changed.

    And yet, ironically, it doesn't seem to find my WiFi network and send the messages that way... a feature my previous 3 Samsung phones were great with.

    I will admit its not entirely amazing to say the least. But its not like I have many problems with it either. But I'm not big on texting, and send maybe 300 messages a month.

    Nope. None of those problems here. You've used multiple Android devices all with the same results?

    just in general, maybe try deleting your 1500 sms in batches.

    i've tried to do similar on my previous nokia phone (3000+ sms) and it froze up pretty badly. i try to do them in batches of no more than 100.

    i think it's more the actual act of deleting so many messages that makes messaging applications (across the board) hang for a period of time.

    i feel your frustration but at the same time dont quite understand it. 1500 sms saved? i do at least 3000 sms a month but have no inclination on going back and reading them. if its a problem perhaps the solution is to have them deleted after a certain number. say 1000. i am pretty sure handcent has that option.


    good luck!
