    Question Force Close in Messaging

    This is very strange.

    I have a Droid and download many random apps. Many of them run and I kill them often to not have a laggy performance but it still happens quite a bit. I get many random force closes from all kinds of apps. Very annoying and I feel like I am the only one.


    Problem:

    Steps to Create force close everytime in Messaging:
    1. Compose new message
    2. Type in "D"
    3. Type in "A"
    4. *Messaging (process com.android.mms) has stopped (no wait button to choose)

    Once A is typed it always force closes (40 times in a row)

    I have restarted with no luck.

    Any ideas? Will go see verizon soon...

    I tried the steps on my DROID and it didn't force close so it may be one of the applications you downloaded or you may have just gotten a glitchy phone.

    EDIT: Maybe try a battery pull? Or factory reset?

    Manual Reset Instructions

    That is for the Manual/Factory reset

    I'm not sure what it removes exactly so I would take caution if I were you. I have a feeling that it gets rid of everything that you've added on and leaves you with a clean slate.

    Just went to Privacy and did factory data reset.

    After activation and signing into my google account... it went to the desktop.

    All shortcuts are gone but my desktop is the same custom image.

    Syncing is still occurring as I can see the icon above. Nothing seems to have synced yet... going to wait till syncing is done. time is 6:24

    6:25 Just got a new email message alert for gmail.

    6:26 All my applications are restored and in the application list...

    signing into facebook and logging in.

    Just tested the "DA" issue and it works!!

    Other apps need me to redo the settings...

    Everything seems much quicker and snappier at the moment. Hopefully this fixed a few things... I just uninstalled all un-used apps too.

    Now I'm getting the same thing (Messaging force closing quickly upon starting it up). Just started happening. The only thing I've installed new was the recent update to Astro File Manager. The phone in general has gotten more and more laggy. I've only installed 8 or 10 apps. Very disappointing.

    Hey Keith, any chance you installed Handcent SMS on the phone before this started happening? Also, did the droid happen to crash before this happened to where it was locked on a dark screen and you had to pull the battery? That crash happened to me, then that's when the messaging software broke.

    YO! I think I found the solution. It definitely fixed mine and Keiths too and you prolly wouldn't of had to reset your phone.

    If you have lots of text messages that you haven't deleted, mine was around 250, then it starts force closing and can lock up the phone. As soon as I deleted a good chunk of them, it was all back to normal. Must be a memory type issue.
