Ive had my Desire for almost two months and pretty happy with it.  Earlier in the week it started to become slow when sending text messages to one of my contacts and so I presumed I needed to delete most of them.  My first problem came when I couldnt find a sent folder so I installed Handcent which kept crashing so I deleted the app. The second when I tried to delete messages manually both individually and by conversation.  My phone just keeps crashing when I try to delete. Anyone have any suggestions please. If I go into message application info and clear data will that delete the messages or the whole progamme.

I am new to the forum and have just seen your posting. I hope you have found the answer, but in case you haven't, you can only delete texts either 1 by 1, or on a conversation basis.

If you do delete on a conversation basis, the amount of time to delete is relative to the number of messages in the conversation. I had the same issue you did, and I basically had to sit and wait (doing nothing else with the phone) while all messages in the conversation are deleted. The phone will appear to hang, but it will be fine once it has finished deleting the conversations.

Hope that helps.
