    Can't Delete Thread(s)

    Hi Guys,

    I've had my Samsung Galaxy S3 for approx 6 months now, and it has become laggy throughout the Text message app.

    I've been looking around elsewhere, and I've (now) set my limit to 500 messages per thread, however I have threads which I haven't cleared since I started, and some people I send upto 20-30 messages a day, everyday, so you can imagine how many messages I have in some threads.

    My problem is, every time I try and delete a thread, it doesnt do anything to delete a thread, but it will crash the messaging app - causing my to shut it down through the task manager, and reset the phone itself.

    Are there any other tips to remove threads?

    Cheers in advance!

    What happens if you go to settings - apps - all, find your messaging app and delete data?

    Alternatively you could delete one by one (ugh I know.)

    Hi,

    I have just tried your suggestion, and unfortunately didnt change a thing.

    Im a little surprised that such a "state of the art" phone would be so difficult and tedious to remove bulk text messages....

    Yea it can be a pain. Are you using the stock messaging app or something else?

    Welcome to the site. Seems like this would be a problem the developers would have solved early on.
