    I think I would look at any apps you have added around the time it began to freeze. One or more might be the cause. You could remove it/them and see. Also, pull the battery, which seems to help some issues. As a last resort, I would probably go to Verizon and request a replacement phone, which some people on here have done, and which often seems to be the solution.

    I'm far from an expert... others will help I'm sure... but these are my suggestions.

    At this point I would be on my way to a Verizon store...! It could be a fautly phone. Some folks have gotten replacements that seem to work well.

    Same issues here. Any time you get more than about 400 texts that you are trying to delete it will cause the phone to freeze. HIGHLY stupid design if you ask me. If the phone doesn't have enough memory to delete the texts, why not design an "auto delete" for the texts. Some people, such as myself, dont have time to worry about maintaining messages on my cellphone. Never had to worry about it with my Blackberry...... I actually had to go have Verizon do a hard reset on my phone in order to delete them (ended up with almost 5000 in my inbox). Lost all other information on my phone, and it was a PAIN to say the least.

    keep each conversation under 400 messages, and dont try to delete multiple conversations at a time. should help you..

    Eris Text Deletion - Android Forums

    looks like this is a problem. As with the post above i am pissed that a smart phone cannot manage text messages better. I do not have time to delete messages every day. What a pile
