    Hi Guys,

    I've had my Samsung Galaxy S3 for approx 6 months now, and it has become laggy throughout the Text message app.

    I've been looking around elsewhere, and I've (now) set my limit to 500 messages per thread, however I have threads which I haven't cleared since I started, and some people I send upto 20-30 messages a day, everyday, so you can imagine how many messages I have in some threads.

    My problem is, every time I try and delete a thread, it doesnt do anything to delete a thread, but it will crash the messaging app - causing my to shut it down through the task manager, and reset the phone itself.

    Are there any other tips to remove threads?

    Cheers in advance!

    I'm not really familiar with your device or its menus, but can you go to the app management settings in your menu and clear the app data for messaging? If that doesn't work, you may have to resort to a factory reset.
