Cannot delete text messages

I apparently waited too long to clear my incoming and outgoing text messages and now my phone can't handle the request. When I try to delete individually, it's fine but that would take forever. When I try to delete all, the windows timer things starts then 10 minutes later the phone freezes up and I have to turn it off. When I turn it back on, all text messages are still there. My phone is slowing down becuase of it.

I have reached my frustration threshold with my tmobile wing. I feel like I wasted my money on this product. Can't send text messages, constant low memory message even though I have downloaded only 1 application, constant freezing up and locking up, quite often I have to pull the battery out from the back because the phone just stops--I mean the list goes on an on.

I can't believe a person can spend this amount of money for such a faulty product.

Phone tells me text memory is full but I have deleted all text messsages but still get the message

First make sure ALL text msgs are deleted-incoming and outgoing. Then reboot(refresh) your phone by turning it off for 30 seconds, then turn it back on. If this doesnt work, try removing the battery for 30 seconds, replace your battery and try again. This should solve your problem. If not, contact your phone servive provider and explain the problem to them.

Text messaging problem

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

Cell phone

try this. The menu names may vary depending on the model or even service provider. look for a simmilarly meaning menu name

For missed calls, made calls or received calls
Go to
menu, call history, erase History, then click on whichever option you want to clear it. you can also clear all.

if you only want to erase just one entry go to call history, go to the category you want(missed, outgoing,incoming) then scroll to your particular one and click options, erase

Assuming you want to erase the recipients of txt messages, go as if you want to send a text(menu, messaging, send message, text message.) then on recent list, scroll and select your desired entry and press options, erase

Good luck
