The same thing happened to me, I had a thread of texts that exceeded 1000+, I tried to delete and it would always force close. It just so happens that you have to completely reset your phone, that means putting it into the state that it was in when it came out of the box.
You can do this by.. Step 1: Taking out the battery Step 2: Hold the home key, end key and menu key all at once untill you see a new symbol on the screen. Step 3: Press alt + w
Congrats, you just nuked everything off your phone.
(And yes this is the only way, I consulted two T-Mobile stores.)
OMG MINES TOO, den a few weeks later, it stays blk,it only works somtime wen i keep [pressing] random buttons but now it stays pitch blk , :( but as for now since ur phone is actin like tht before it gets worst, reboot ur phone by turnin it off, then hold on to the power/end button nd da home button at the same time for at least 15 sec. then a rebooting sign will come on, tht shud fix ur phone for the mean time .
This problem had been bugging me for over a month now so I decided to just try and wait it out. First I deleted all the threads individually that the phone would allow me to so that just left me with 3 big threads, one that had 1300 messages and 2 that had about 650 each. I went into each thread and hit delete and when the "force close or wait" message popped up I hit "wait". Then it came up again about 5 minutes later so I hit "wait" again. I kept hitting "wait" each time and the thread eventually deleted. The ones with 650 took about 10 minutes of waiting to finally get deleted, the one with 1300 took about 20 mins but eventually they were all gone and now my phone is running much more smoothly. So just wait it out. Its annoying but worth it in the end.
ya....its a known issue that should be resolved when cupcake software is released.....
you WILL encounter this force close error message everytime to attepmt to delete messages if you have over 100 messages in the inbox....
just select menu > delete threads and select the force close error when it pops up. you should be okay.....just keep doing that till cupcake is out. if that doesnt help, youll need to have the phone reset. try going to MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > RESET PHONE > ERASE EVERYTHING.
**as long as you remember you gmail username and password, all of your contacts and calander apps will be restored on the handheld. if you do not remember them, you will loose EVERYTHING if you complete this reset.**
