Unhappy SMS lock-up

Please Login to Remove!

I have read several threads regarding SMS text lockup. Is there a solution to text message threads freezing? It is starting to happen more often and it is very frustrating. I found today that even deleting the offending thread didn't help. The very next time I received a message from the same person (after deleting the thread) it still froze and required a battery pull to fix. Any suggestions.

I hava a Bold 9700 running V5.0.0.714 (platform 5.1.0.146) on T-Mobile.

If you storing the SMS messages on the SIM card try deleting some. Also check to see how much memory you have. You might be running out of memory. Did you add additional applications? maybe one is causing the problem.

Default Re: SMS lock-up

Thanks for trying to help. I have 73.5MB of free application memory. I am not storing my SMS texts on my media card. In fact I routinely clean up my sms test message threads. My media card has 1.7 GB of free space. I only have a few apps that I use and the problem was present before I installed them. The problem only affects a message thread where I have several back-and-forth messages. I will send and receive a messages with the person and then the thread locks up and I can't open the thread any more. Usually I can delete the thread and start a new one. Some times I have to do a battery pull to text that person again. I can text other people with no problem when the thread locks up. This is very strange behavior.
