You may need to reload the Blackberry software.  This can be downloaded to a PC from RIM.  You will need to find your carrier and download the specific operatign system that your carrier and mobile device uses.

Unopened sms in my inbox


It seems your message box is full. delete all the messages from sent box first to clear some memory. Then try to see if you can get the unread messages.

I found this solution posted as comment on this clip:

This following solution was suggested on youtube, it worked for me. There is one negative point about it: ALL YOUR OLD MESSAGES WILL BE DELETED
If you delete your sms.db file (located in: var\mobile\library\sms) it fixes it, you can open and send\recieve sms. i think the only permanent solution is to upgrade to 1.1.3 with itunes and start again (im asuming u got the bug using ziphone, i did). i installed isms as a backup sms service incase it stops working, which it does often. you cant look at recieved messages, but good for sending sms if sms.ap is playing up

to delete sms.db i use mobilefinder on my iphone

Be sure about your phone memory(Inbox) is free for new message. Other wise delete some SMS from the your inbox. then try again. From: Sheetal
