    Are you trying to delete from Handscent or the stock messaging app? If its the stock one, once you hit delete, it will freeze up/force close a few times. Just restart the phone and it should be gone. Thats what I did when I had about the same amount in 2 of my threads.

    I had a 2500+ thread i was trying to delete and it would hang on handcent and the stock app. I used sms cleaner free on the market and it works like a champ. it took about 10 min, I just left it on the charger. I use it regularly to clean messages that are more than 2 weeks old just so I don't get a massive thread again.

    SMS Cleaner Free - Android app on AppBrain

    Hope this helps.

    Did you restart your phone? Like I said, mines would freeze up a bit then go into a force close every time I'd open the app thereafter. I would then restart the phone and the thread would be gone.
