    Hi can anyone help me?

    Suddenly about 2 days ago, every time i text a message, i get an error when the message goes through which says:

    SORRY!
    The application Messaging
    (process com.android.mms)
    has stopped unexpectedly.
    Please try again.

    It asks me to force close. I read somewhere that it is due to having low space on the on-board memory so i deleted apps and texts, to no avail. :(

    Is there anything I can do?

    Oh another thing, this problem always seems to send a blank text that doesn't get sent to 1 person in my contacts after every error for some reason - if that helps hmm.

    Try this ... with the phone ON and at the home screen ... Pull the Battery and the SIM ... let the phone set fro a couple of minutes ... put SIM and battery back in an power up normally ... Try send a text msg ... with the phones default messaging program ... I assume you are not using a third party messaging app ?

    Hi, I'm also facing this problem. I've tried taking out the battery, etc., and nothing seems to work.

    Any advice?

    I can't understand what to do with the oCERT Advisories page. Is there anything actionable there?

    Thanks in advance!

    I had this problem: every time I tried to send a message, the "closed unexpectly" error would pop up.

    I looked at previous threads in the messaging app. One of them had about 20 blank, unsent messages. I deleted all of them, and no longer saw the error. Hope that helps!

    This is on a Samsung Moment running Android 1.5.

    Thank you hotani for your advice. I did the same thing after reading your post - I checked my previous threads in the messaging app and found about 50 unsent messages to a person I hadn't texted in quite some time. I deleted them all and the 'Force close' messages went away. My messaging app was actually bad enough that I think I wasn't even receiving text messages. This is on a T-Mobile G1. Thanks again for the help.

    I have the same problem but everytime it force closes I restart my phone and as soon as I turn it back on it sends random old messages to people I have previously texted. How do I stop it?

    Also, how do you delete unsent messages? Or better yet, how do you know if you have unsent messages?

    I had the same problem on my Moto Droid 1 with OS 2.2.1 and fixed it by doing the following:

    • Open Google native Messenging app (the original Messenging App installed on the phone)
    • Select Menu button
    • Select Delete Threads
    Problem solved!

    P.S. This deletes all of your old messenging threads, but nothing in this Post worked and I was ready to do a Factory Reset, so I can deal with it :)

    Same Problem on a Nexus S. Had to delete all the threads(messages) like techdude99. I looked through all my messages and had no unsent messages.

    yep seems to be caused by rogue messages - received an sms from a source in china yesterday and from then on it crashed out... managed to find the backdoor to delete that message..and all fine again - Andriod really do need to fix this hole....

    Had a customer come in with a similar issue getting the error code process com.android.mms error everytime we'd try to send take a picture and send it via mms. Eventually wound up just doing a factory reset after trying to go through the settings and it started working again. Perhaps a little extreme but the customer was able to send pics again so she was happy. Not sure if this will help but it did wind up working again.
