    I spoke to a rep about this issue and they told me to delete my messages but everytime I try the phone just freezes up. Any suggestions? Is there a tool that deletes old text messages?

    Delete and let it sit... sometimes the phone will seem like it has locked up, but eventually it will come around.

    You could also start deleting the messages one at a time... starting with the ones in the draft folder... and then move on to the deleted... then inbox.

    From what I've seen, txt msg delay is normally caused when you are in a low signal area. Unfortunately, it happens on all devices (not just the treo pro). At least this is my situation, yours could be different.

    Once you have msgs in drafts, then hundreds of msgs in the txt inbox and other boxes, things tend to get funky. lol

    Oh, also taking the battery out, putting back in, then deleting the txt msgs works as well...

    In other words, keep playing with it...

    In the future, you may want to delete your msgs once a week or twice a week, depending on how many you get in a day. Not sure if there is a tool to automatically erase them for you...

    Speaking of text messages, is there a way to back them all up? On the Palm OS, all you had to do was make a copy of the "MessagesDB.pdb" file and you had a record of all the text messages. There is no equivalent file on Windows Mobile, so is there a repository where the text messages are stored so that they can be easily backed up? Thanks.

    Thank you! I'll start to delete them weekly, I had them in there for a while but I remember when my rumor would get filled up and it wouldn't do a damn thing haha. I'll probably try clearing it when I'm at work today, can't really use it anyways.

    I use smssync to backup up my messages to. it export all messages to a CVS file that you can open in excel like any other spreadsheet. Works well but it will choke on MMS messages so make sure to delete all of those first or you wont get all your messages saved.
