By default, the screen it set to auto shutoff after 2 minutes. Just press any button to turn it back on. You can change the shutoff time by going to Menu > Settings > Sound & Display > (scroll down) Screen Timeout. Raising it will cost battery juice however.

The force close message comes from the application crashing. Are you using the default text messenger, or one from Android Market? The apps in Android market are developed by third party programmers and are often buggy.

SOURCE: g1 always displaying a force close message

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!

hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone(for text messages) and ask for mms settings for video messages, the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message and video message options
cheers

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.

Deleting Texts Messages


try to delete all threads at once by going to menu then delete threads.....after the force close error messages, you should be okay. i know it wont allow you to delete thema t once...so try all at the same time.

just heads up, this is a known issue and should be resolved once the cupcake software reslease is out....until then, keep your inbox UNDER 100 text messages and it will help prevent this from happening until that update comes out.

worse case scenario. if you do have to reset the phone, all your contacts and calender info will automatically be synced with phone given you remember the username and password for your google account. good luck! :)

TEXT MESSAGE


Does your phone have a data plan attached to it through T-mobile. I know there is one plan that contains 400 messages to it.

If you do check with G1 support at T-Mobile to find out if there is network issue or a software bug.

They can fix it on their end.
