Open the back of the phone. take out the battery. You will see six holes for screws. The one to the right beside the battery should not be a screw. press it 2 or 3 times with something small. Reinsert battery it should show a reboot screen. I just tried it and all my data is still there. try deleting the messages again. if not you might have to reboot from the settings menu but ALL your data will be lost

I cant get my text messages to delete. I let it get past 1000 text from my fiance' now it wont delete them, and it gets very old waiting for 3-4 minutes just trying to get to read what she texts me and...

With that many texts, it will take the phone some time to delete, especially if you are trying to delete the entire thread. You will need to be patient and let the phone work through them all. Think that if it takes 3-4 minutes to load, how much longer the phone may need to load and then delete.
Good luck.

Already running programmes cannot be directly uninstalled. Try a deep format.

How do i delete texts from my htc hero with large conversations

When you go into your MMS app, you will be presented with a list of people you have texted and the number of texts with that thread (conversation). Long hold on the thread you want to delete and you will get a dialog box. One of those options is Delete, and then another dialog box that will ask you if want to delete the entire thread. Hit ok, but keep in mind that if it's a long thread, it may take a couple of minutes to delete. Please be patient with this.

Good luck.

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.
