    Are you getting a text message? or is it a notification from Android? If its a text, it could be a spam text service, or something being sent from your provider.

    Well have you tried deleting all the texts? Maybe there is a corrupted text that is using all the memory.

    I didn't know there were limits to the text inbox. But maybe you 2 are crazy texters:D

    Do you have a lot of MMS messages? Thos do take up a lot of space. Try deleteing those.
    For SMS, i use an app called AutoDeleteSMS. You can set it to delete messages after certain amount of days. So even if you like keeping them for a while, you can set it do delete messages after 14 days, or whatever you want.
    I have mine set at 5 days.

    I've never had that many. But many members here have reported that having large amount of texts on their phone causes lag and force close issues.
    I would reccomend to start deleting some using the app I mentioned in my previous post.
