    Can't delete SMS, date shows Dec 31, 1969?

    Hi all,

    I have several messages that show up as being received on Dec 31, 1969. When I try to delete the message it says "The entire thread will be deleted", I press delete and nothing happens...it's still there. The contents of the messages are all blank as well.

    I know I can fix this by doing a wipe...but I would really rather not do that. I'm hoping there is a simpler fix/solution for this.

    I'm running Bugless Beast v0.1 (Froyo), with bgill55's Clean Black theme and P3's 125/1100 kernel. I am also using the stock messaging app.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    SS for your viewing pleasure



    Thanks,
    Glenn

    Try loading Handcent from the market, deleting the threads from in there. If that works, just uninstall Handcent until the next time this happens.
    Facts are the very first casuality of bad information.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I tried Handcent, and out does the sane thing as the stock messaging app...goes through as if it's deleting, but the messages are still there.

    As far as Mobile Defense, not sure what I should be talking to them about?

    I'm sure these "texts" reside somewhere on my phone...i tried looking around using Root Explorer, but I didn't see anything that looked like it would contain them...

    I didn't look at your image close enough. At first I thought only the mobile defense message was stuck.

    No one else has, or has seen this issue?

    I haven't had any texts say that, but I have had some emails say they were delivered Dec 31, 1969. Its really weird, because if I use my email online, it shows the correct delivery date.

    I'm having the same issue - but it's on email, not text. Same date- 1969 - can't delete them. They're all from unknown sources/junk mail. I'm new to the Droid. Seems like a strange error...

    Just checked my e-mail on my Droid and again I have 2 blank e-mails dated 12/31/1969. I can delete them, but they will return. They are from my outside (ameritech) e-mail but do not appear on any other e-mail programs--only on my droid. Thoughts?
