    My phone is a G1

  • stevesr670 Dec 03, 2008

    I have the manual and can delete from inbox but not from outbox or trash

  • stevesr670 Dec 09, 2008

    If you press delete on the out box message nothing happens
    If you press delete on the trash box message it allows for deletion...........but never deletes.
    Also email seems to come in random, not in sync with my base computer emails

  • stevesr670 Dec 12, 2008

    I don't accept this solution.
    Am I the only one with this problem on my T mobile G1 phone?

  • stevesr670 Dec 12, 2008

    On the outbox the color turns from grey to white.............but nothing happens.

    On the Trash box there's and indication that the message deletes, it opens the message and at the bottom of the message there's a delete option...........but it seems to come back.

    Yes this is through T mobile

In your POP3 account there are three to four folders dependent on whether or not you have sent any email.  Mine displays Inbox, Drafts, Outbox and Trash (Trash is the equivalent of what you all are calling the recycling bin).  If you do not see the Trash folder it may be because your Inbox etc are expanded.  You can fold your folders of course by clicking them.  

You should see the Trash folder as the last one once everything is folded up providing you have deleted emails.

You can permanently delete an individual email in the trash bin the same way you delete one from your Inbox or Outbox using the long press as described earlier in this thread.  That being said I got a feeling you were asking about emptying ALL the trash.  Unfortunately there isn't anyway to do that as of now.  I am praying they add the ability to bulk delete emails in one shot from any folder in an update.   That us a must have email feature.

    else delete all messages in Inbox, Outbox, Sent, and Trash and do a restart. Then Compose and try to send a completely new message from scratch.

You need to reset the unit.

Do the following

Save all your data ontop a computer (do a full backup)

See first if you have a reset option under settings >> sd card & phone storage >> factory data reset

Try resetting by holding down menu button and power button at same time, let them go. The unit will boot up, showing the G1 screen then reset to factory settings.

You will have to do a soft reset. Take the stylus and push it in to the soft reset button at the bottom of the phone which is right next to the storage card insert. Your phone will then restart but you wil not loose any of your contacts or other valuable content. DO NOT DO A HARD RESET!!! Go off line then delete the file. It then should be gone.
hope it will help, regards JAN_yuanjia

Hi
Click on the Message option either from the main screen or clicking on the top left button. Then press the middle key in the circle which brings up the Msg Center Menu. Choose Cleanup Messages and you can either choose All or Inbox or Outbox or a selection of other options.

    If this hasn't been resolved yet, press 611 on your phone and ask for G1 support. T-Mobile has a special support center for your phone.

Can't open inbox/outbox/drafts Razr v3x


Two possible problems here, the new messages could be server messages, your inbox is completely full and there (unfortunately) really is no choice to but to delete either a large number of the messages in your inbox or delete all. If that doesn't work it needs to be taken into a retailer to be either repaired or trashed. Had a similar problem with the same phone and i had to delete all my inbox messages and it still showed that i had messages and they were server messages.

Deleting outbox messages


The options tab should always appear on the outbox screen. I would try powering off, taking out battery for a few seconds, put back in and power on. I've noticed that most problems with the c610 are solved by turning off and on.

Outbox


Try emptying your outbox. In your message center, scroll to your outbox, hit the menu bar, and scroll to where it says "clean up messages" - you should see an option to delete the messages in the outbox.

Delete old messages text & voice?


When first turned on, select "messages." then down arrow to inbox or outbox. Select choice. For outbox, down arrow to SENT. Select. Hit the center button. scroll down twice to delete the one message. Scroll down once more to delete ALL messages from the sent outbox. Confirm and out they go!

Now, does anybody know how to email text messages so they can be saved?

Text is stuck in my outbox


I had this same problem. Deleting and clicking "yes" at the warning screen would not remove the message from my outbox and the message kept resending for days.

Solution: In the Outbox, click "Menu" > Empty Deleted Items. Click "yes" at the warning. The message should now be gone from your outbox and your text buddy should now be able to regain sanity.

T-mobile credited back the resent text messages when I called them.
