SMS Messages won't delete

I have two SMS messages, one incoming, one outgoing, that won't delete. All other messages, regardless of type, will delete with no problems but, for some reason, these two won't. I've tried deleting individually and DELETE PRIOR and nothing works.

 

What should I try now?

Try going into your sms or messages box, click the menu button and go to view folders. You will see sms inbox and sms outbox saved mssages and more in there. Try deleting from those. Also, did you try a battery pull? I always prefer to power down 1st, remove the battery for 1/2 a minute and put it back and let it reboot. Then see if they are gone or if it will let you delete them.

Pulling the battery worked. I'd tried everything but that. Thanks for the help!

 

Now if I can just get my movie to replay somewhere I'll be a very happy camper.

Re: SMS Messages won't delete

Having messages that won't delete has been a frustration!!! for me for quite a while.

Taking the battery out for about 1 1/2 minutes finally did it. Thanks!!!

My BB is a Curve 8900.
