If you are deleting a thread of messages or multiple messages, it will take a long time. Just be patient and let it go for a few minutes. It should work.

Good luck.

SOURCE: my HTC hero will not

My Hero used to take ages to delete messages and often used to freeze when it was doing it. However now my phone is running 2.1 update it deletes perfectly fine. Check if your phone is on 2.1 update, go to settings, about phone, software informations and it is the firmware version your looking at. If your phone is running lower then 2.1 update then go to settings, system software updates and press check now. If it says there is an update available then download it. Overwise you will have to download an app. The app i suggest is called 1-click cleaner, it allows you to quickly delete all the messages on your phone from the app. Hope this is of help to you.

When I try to send a text message on HTC Hero, a window pops up that says "Phone storage is full! Delete some files to free space.


Basically either clear all your messages and then try. If it still says the same message then you will have to clear applications or mulitmedia from your phone to free some more space. I suggest you delete some applications as normally multimedia is stored on your sd card.

I have over 700 text messages in one thread and no matter how i try to delete this particular thread it will not do it. I have tried rebooting my phone, taking battery out. and nothing is working


Try to delete the messages individually also try where the message box is with all your threads tap & hold the thread your trying to erase and then a box should appear and one of the selections is delete this thread. If that method doesn't work do this:

go to Settings> Applications> Manage Applications> All (I don't know how it is exactly on the Hero as I am using Froyo you need to get the list of all applications.)> Messages> Now Tap: "Force Stop"> and now Tap: "Clear Data"

Using the last method will erase all your messages in all your threads, so if you have information you need in any of your threads be sure to write down what you need.

I will attempt to delete sms message on my htc hero and it will say something like "entire thread will be deleted" but it will never actually be deleted


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
