    How many messages do you have? Very large numbers of them can cause problems, yes.

    I just deleted 2000 messages from numerous contacts but I still have around 8000

    Wow, that is a lot of messages. Have you never deleted a single message? I don't think i have even received that many since i got the phone.

    In my experience with another, similarly specced android phone, the messaging app would start giving people trouble once they got past a few thousand. So I definitely think that's the likely culprit.

    There are apps to backup messages to gmail (so they can still be viewed) if you want to get rid of them but still keep them available, as some people do.

    You were right, it was the messages; I deleted them all & it works just as fast as when I first got it; thanks!
