    I started having the same problem with my G1 about 2wks after i got it too.

    When it got really bad one of my friends told me to turn it off, take out the battery, and hold down the power button for a few minutes.

    I did that and it didnt completely fix the problem but now it works a little better.

Try downloading Txtract from the G1 Market. It's listed under "tools". Use this application to save the text messages you've been hoarding to your SD card, then delete the text messages from your phone. Your G1 will work like new again!

I have a problem with my g1 htc phone. when i try to click th phonebook or dial pad i get this message "The process android.process. acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." then force closes,...

That means that there has been an software failure similar to End Program messages that pop up on a windows computer.

You should end as suggested by the mobile OS and continue to operate your device.

G1 Text Message Deleting Problems.

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.)

G1 isnt deleting text messages

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.

Cant delete the thread on the g1

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.**

good luck :)
