Question about HTC G1
I cant delete the message thread.. maybe because there are too many messages in the thread... but everytime i try 2 delete it. it jus freeze and ask me 2 wait or foreclose.... very confusin... ((need help))
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 :)

I have had the same issue with my G1. Great Phone but does lack in very important technical areas such as battery life and sms deletion.
To solve the deletion problem with the G1. Very simple. The G1 is basically a minature computer. Has an OS system that runs Processes. In order to delete a long SMS thread it needs priority on the deletion process. If you have a time out for your screen it causes that deletion process to time out.
Solution: Turn your time out screen under settings, display to never time out. Just then start deleting the larger threads one by one.

I had the same problem as all of you, I like that i can keep multiple messages without having to delete them, then I ran across the deleting problem. Every time I tried to delete a large thread I was impatient and wanted the process to be quick, so i would press another button and i noticed that this would cause the crash. So I had to factory reset my phone the first time, because I am an impatient person and I don't like waiting. I noticed that the phone will erase large threads if u give it time, a thread of about 250msgs took around 2 minutes to delete, a thread of 600msgs took around 4-5 minutes. That's a lot of waiting. I also changed the display timeout settings to never timeout, only when i want to delete messages.
So go ahead try it,
Change your display timeout settings to NEVER TIMEOUT
Go to thread, delete the tread, and do not press any other key on ur phone within reasonable amount of time, hopefully this works for u like it worked for me!!
