Phone freezes when trying to type a txt msg

Ok, so about 4 months ago my razr stopped allowing me to type messages. I can get into write a message and then it totally freezes and I have to remove the battery. I can save numbers but I can only type like 4 letters into the name before it does the same thing. The phone is unlocked and I am using it with cingular. The not being able to txt msg wasn't a problem with cingulars txt msg from the web but they changed their damn website!!! Please help =)

Do you have too many text messages stored on your phone? I had a phone like that, If when I neared the storage limit it would stop allowing any entering of text messages. Just go to the menu button when your in the text message area and press the menu key, scroll down to cleanup messages, select it and delete them all.

My droid r2d2 SMS app freezes while typing text messages. It will show a blinking cursor, but will not continue to type. I usually have to go back to the home screen at least 3 times, then reopen the text...


Mine started this today, R2D2 Motorola A957 Droid 2 which was OTA upgraded to Android 2.3.3 about a month ago (when Verizon began pusing the over-the-air upgrade from FroYo to Gingerbread). I have a large digest of SMS text messages and less than 2 dozen MMS (pix) messages on the phone. I thought that using a TXT backup app, clearing the TXT conversations out completely, and then trying a "brand new" text message would fix the problem, if it was strictly an out-of-memory issue for the stock TXT messaging app, but no joy.

One change I recently did was to move most of my apps to SD (the 8GB MicroSDHC card originally included with the R2D2) so that the internal memory is freed up for better performance, or so I hypothesized. As far as I know, none of those Android market apps are tied to TXT, mainly games, multimedia and productivity apps, so baffled by whatever has changed with TXT composition.

My description of the problem: When I slide out the QWERTY hardware keyboard to type a TXT (either new or reply), a few key presses into typing, the cursor stops responding, and then the screen backs out (as if the BACK button were pressed), and a few more of the final keystrokes begin a "search" of my messages. Example, let's say I meant to type "I'm fine, how are you?" My R2D2 begins the text normally as: I'm fine, how ...then there's a frozen screen, and it returns to the TXT conversations list and begins a search for messages with: areyou. Very frustrating since not only does it bail out of the message thread, but it also doesn't save the characters I've typed as a draft. Previously, when a TXT composition is interrupted by incoming call or other screen activity, the stock app has always saved the message as a draft so I can simply select the conversation from the list and continue. Nope, now I have to start over. And can you tell that my SMS messages are never short anyway? Having a TXT conversation became a ridiculous ordeal today as I retyped and retyped the same reply that was rapidly becoming obsolete.

So now I'm looking into backing up anything I can from my phone, and will attempt a factory reset/recovery if I cannot find a solution tonight. I can't keep up with business over TXT and who knows what else is going to go bonk with my business smartphone tomorrow when I will really depend on it to behave. If you find a solution, I hope to find it posted here. Thanks in advance to anyone out there with some helpful suggestions!

    Text messaging problem


    Delete everything in your inbox and outbox. That solves the problem, I promise. Apparently this is very common with Razrs.

    Text inbox


    I have to jump to the obvious first question here: Have you tried clearing out some data from the phone? Make sure you clean out Sent and Deleted messages, and delete some pictures that maybe didn't turn out so well.

    Is the status still the same?
