The first medicine - do battery pull.

 

When device is ON remove the battery, wait a minute and turn the battery back.

 

Wait until the device starts and check again.

 

It should help.

 

Check this and post here how it is going.

tried pulling battery twice now and it has no affect.  The same error message pops up when clicking on the sms icon and text messages cant be accessed

Re: I have uncaught exception java lang index out of bounds exception when I click text message icon and it wont open

It is an RIM OS messaging application error.

 

It can be fixed via the following steps.

 

1. Make selective backup of your device data via BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Backup only data you need. Save the backup file in the safe and secure place. If you have important files stored in internal memory (not in external memory SD Card transfer them to the SD Card).

 

2. Wipe the device memory. Go to Options - Security Options - General Settings, hit the menu and select "Wipe handheld", after that type blackberry to proceed.

 

3. Restore data saved on step 1 back to the device.

 

If the error persists it means that there is broken database (data block) from the device saved along with backup data. It may be "Messages" database or another. To investigate the source do the following.

 

Via BlackBerry Desktop Manager delete restored databases (data blocks) on the device and check the erroneus behaviour after every deletion.

Re: I have uncaught exception java lang index out of bounds exception when I click text message icon and it wont open

It is a strange thing.

 

Wipe the device and restore databases step by step.

 

In other words:

 

1. Wipe

2. Check - ok?

3. If yes - restore address book

4. Check - ok?

and so on until you find a broken database

 

It is a cumbersome approach, I understand.

 

But I have no idea how can we find the broken database when you have tried all suggested things and nothing helped.
