Remove any memory cards that are in the phone (MicroSD, SD or MiniSD), and remove the SIM card, if your phone uses one. Make sure the phone is turned on before continuing (if you had to remove the battery to remove the memory card or SIM, turn the phone on).
Select "Contacts" from the main screen of your cell phone to access your contacts list. Go through the entire list, selecting each name and deleting the entry. Consult your cell phone manual to find out where the "Delete Entry" option is located in your Contacts menu (if you do not have a manual use the link in "Resources" to download a copy of one for your phone). Typically, when you choose an entry, the option to "Edit" will appear on the screen. Select that and one of the sub-options will be "Delete Entry." Do this for all of the entries in your Contact list.
Open your text messaging (SMS) application on your phone. Most phones have an icon you can choose from the main screen to go to the application (where you can compose, send, or read SMS messages). Press your "Menu" key again (or the key under the "Options" choice on the screen), and select "Delete All." Click on the choice to delete both read and unread messages. When you are done, return to the main menu.
Delete all of your media files. Go to your music, video, photo and MMS directories, and either use a "Delete All" option from the menu, or individually highlight each file name, select "Edit" and then "Delete" and remove each one.
Open your calendar and clear all of the entries. Make, sure when you choose this option from the calendar edit menu, that you check off the option to remove the calendar history as well, so past events are erased.
Open your email settings (where you entered your email address originally to receive notifications on your phone of new emails), and delete the email address you registered.
Open your notepad program and delete any notes you may have stored in the memory. Do this for any Voice Notes, if your phone offered this function as well.
Select the Home button and click on Messages on the top left corner of your bold. Press the Home button a drop down menu with options would appear. Scroll to "view folders" Click on it. You would be able to view your MMS and SMS once more.
Meanwhile, when I make mention of "click" on the description above it means depressing the trick ball.
Just go to your options, and click "themes". Then hit "restore theme defaults" and the icons should reappear.
You might also want to got to options menu in the email messages. It appears as you have a combined inbox instead of a separate one. There is an option that says SMS AND EMAIL INBOXES with three options: Theme controlled Combined Separate
I have the same problem. I end up clicking the menu button from the main screen, then click SMS and MMS (second row). From there i can view them. Not sure why we can't see them from the main screen though?!?
first off need to know what cellular provider you are using, 2nd all text or picture text. regualar text is classified as SMS pic text is MMS. You may have a corrupt setting, but ill take a guess and post T Mobile setup. if you use someone else dont use these settings.
