    Looks like no one has really answered this issue. My coworker has the TB and anytime she opens up the text app the phone stalls or freezes. Sometimes it recovers other time it tells her the app needs to be forced closed. After searching around I see some suggested to install chompssms or handcent, to remedy the issue. But that is not a remedy it is an alternative to fixing the problem. Has anyone figured out why this happens and what can be done to fix it correctly?

    Thanks
    Mike.

    Check to see if she has any huge threads. If u keep the threads too big it freezes up

    I thought the same thing and yes she has several threads that she has not cleared out. I'll have her clean up and see what happens.

    Thanks

    I installed chompsms but issue remains.
    What happens is it doesn't allow text input. But if I just wait it will eventually start working. Frustrating.

    So you don't get the force close screen if you wait, what if you tap it a couple more times will it give you the force close screen then?

    I have not seen a force close.
    I have tried closing chomp, going back in. Doesn't matter. It seems to b that it has to wait for something. It does not happen all the time.

    Nothing so far. I have not had the chance to have her delete any long conversations on he phone yet. I know she never deletes them so that probably has something to do with it.

    CoopDawg do you have lots of saved texts on your phone too?

    I have a bunch, I don't delete the threads that I use the most. The count is below.

    Person 1: 2301
    Person 2: 661
    Person 3: 45
    Person 4: 44

    then just down from there, probably equaling around 50-60

    The thing of it is, who give a crap how big my threads are, the phone shouldn't take issue with this unless I have a bunch of picture and mms going on, which i dont.

    CoopDawg, I agree with you but am seeing a pattern here. It has to be how the HTC handles the saved SMS files that is causing the issues.

    @ Jug the Thug, now now Jug we can't be that way just cause we have the DX, we still need to lend our knowledge out and help when at all possible.

    And Yes I love my DX Gingerbread man, dancedroid

    I just cleared my threads out. I have two threads remaining around 300 - 400 per thread. This has definitely seemed to resolve the issue. :)

    Sorry all, I completely forgot to post my solution. I downloaded handcent, it barely ever gets stuck. The only time I notice lag is when I use the pop up notification and have multiple messages coming though or i tap the persons name to see the entire convo. These aren't really freezing issues but the program sets your screen back to a lock. Should be fixed shortly.

    The stock app is messed up, just use handcent.

    This often happens to me. I shut down the phone every night and plug it in. When I first turn it on in the morning, it's fine. I text a good bit during the day. About mid morning, it'll start lagging/freezing. I end up rebooting the phone and it's fine,but that takes a big chunck of battery life to reboot!

    This happens to me a lot! I was surprised no one really talked about this before but I literally feel like just chucking my phone because at certain times it does it SO much. There HAS to be a fix. Ive tried Task Killer, Ive tried using Handcent and it stills happens.

    Did you try clearing the cashe? It use to happen to me a lot until I read the suggestion to try that. I did it and [knock on wood] it has been fine since.

    I have the same issue on my Tbolt, I heard moving down to a 16gb card might work so Im in the process of switching my stuff over right now and will let you know if it works for me.

    Just changed it to GO SMS and no issues since. I understand the update will handle some of these issues so we are just letting it go for now.
