    I have an SMS thread over 4,000 texts which is slowing down my phone. But when I go to delete it, it locks the phone up...what can i do??

    Start deleting messages one at a time by long pressing and selecting delete? Will take forever to get it down to a manageable size... but oh well.. Or have you tried deleting the thread and just letting it sit? Like hit delete before you go to bed, then see if it worked in the morning..

    That's what I found, as well. I tried deleting it every which way and it locked it up every time. Hard Reset is the only thing that did it. They need to fix all these issues with txting soon.

    I would suggest downloading handcent and using the delete all function. That is assuming you are currently running the stock messaging app.

    I experienced the same problem. I haven't tried the handcent "delete all" function but here's my solution...

    The sms threads need a few more options... like something similar to deleting previous dates like blackberries.

    I went ahead and did a hard reset and that worked. Is there no app that will delete messages once they reach a certain number?
