    Hey,

    Just got a new HTC Hero!!! Love it..

    However my sms inbox is filling up and I never delete my texts, however, the sms app is beginning to run slow... and when I receive texts it marks them as read even though I have not read them...

    Any one know how to fix this, or do I just need to delete texts...

    I think Deleting your texts is best idea... I text alot so ive gotten myself in the habit of doing it every day or two. I havent heard of any other fixes

    If you dont want to part with the texts you can always use an app to back them up somewhere before you delete them. I use a free one called 'SMS backup' that backs them up to my gmail account. That means I can still access any old texts through the gmail app, and they're laid out the same as on the phone.

    Ummm.....

    Well I have had the phone 3 days and already have about 1500 txts on the phone XD, I txt a lot haha

    There is an idea, how do you view them though, does it back them up to like an excel sheet or something?

    No, it stores them as emails. So each a text message thread on your phone becomes a threaded email conversation. It adds the label 'SMS' to them all on gmail, so you just pick to view that label on the gmail app and there are all your text messages :)

    whats your build version number ?

    I found when i was on original rom version anything over 200 in a thread was slow i had 700 in one thread and it took about 15 seconds to let me in text messages.

    I upgraded it and restored my messages and it seemed to be faster but that could be to do with fact i did a restore of old messages which i think its reading from back up file on sd card

    OK same as me, the program i used was called sms backup and restore catchy title but it does what it says however i do thing that it is storing all the backup messages which are displayed in the backup file, as there is a little file icon on each message, not entirely happy with that but it does make a huge improvement to speed.
