Question about Pantech Duo Smartphone

7 Answers

Deleting Texts I have 1,000s of texts on my Pantech Duo, and when I delete them all, my phone freezes. so I turn it off and restart it, and when I turn it back on, all of my texts that I just deleted are back. Sometimes, when I just turn off my phone and turn it back on, my texts up to a certain date have deleted, and items that I did delete are back; kinda like my phone went back in time on memory or something. I need to delete those texts, I'm running out of memory HELP!

    I have over a year's worth of text messages I can't delete except for one at a time. How can I mass delete?

  • rachfrito Aug 17, 2008

    I am having a similar problem. I am not able to delete the hundreds of text messages on my Pantech Duo Smartphone. After going to the folder to delete ALL MESSAGES, The phone will give the message "Are you sure you want to permanently delete all messges?" I select "Yes", and the phone freezes on this screen and must be turned off to unfreeze. I have let the phone sit on this screen for up to a half hour with no success. Please let me know what I can do. It's driving me crazy!!! Also, the phone keeps turning off and on by itself. Could this be a reslut of so many old texts on my phone? Thank you, Sue

    I have every single message sent and received since July, 2008! I can't delete them or it freezes! At least other people are having the same problem, but I wish there was a fix for this other than buying a new phone.

The only way i found to fix this problem is to do a hard reset.

In your phone select start > settings > security > master clear

there is a password required to perform this operation: the default is 0-0-0-0 (zero, zero, zero, zero).

The phone isnt frozen...the more texts that are in the folder the longer it takes to clear them

Posted on Aug 10, 2008

This is what i do

go to your messages and go to menu then folders. once all of the deleted items, drafts, inbox, etc. is there go back to menu and select clear messages or delete texts. it may take a while to do but do not slide ur phone to the keyboard. only to the numeral keyboard or nothing at all. dont turn ur phone off cuz then youll have to do it all over again. just wait like 5 min if u have like 1000 txts

To delete all your txts at once go to your messages>menu>folders then highlight the folder you would like to clear and select menu>delete the phone will delete all the txts but it will take a very long time and apear like the phone is frozen but it really isnt. I suggest doing this before bed because it takes a long time.

This is from rachfrito. I was able to finally delete all my text messages. After hitting the "yes" key when asked if I wanted to permanetly delete the message, I let the phone sit all night plugged into the charger. It looked like it was froze, but after doing this for two nights all the messages finally deleted. After the first night about half were gone and by the second morning they were all deleted.

Found something that is a pain but it deletes my messages.
 once you have a bit of free time and can give your phone a few minutes of a break, just let the phone sit after you have hit delete.DO NOT RESTART or even touch it really. it takes a few minutes for it to delete all my messages, but i left it alone one day and it deletes all my messages with just wait time as my problem. 
good luck

Pantech duo keeps locking up


I have had a pantech for a while and have had similar problems. It is not a permanent solution, but this will do a bit of help. DO NOT FORGET that when deleting messages, you have to go to menu then tools and "empty deleted messages". For a short fix, and sometimes a long while, simply take out the battery, take out the SIM card, and blow out the little connection. Blow off the SIM card and battery and put everything back.

Deleting all text messages


hello
have you tried
From your text message screen click MENU then FOLDERS. Highlight the folder you want and click MENU then DELETE ALL to remove even ones saved to the SIM or CLEAR MESSAGES to delete just ones stored on the phone.
also a manual can be download for futher refference if needed .
