I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S GT I 9000 to Android 2.2 yesterday...but I just can't open my messages...it says Force Close every time I try...any solutions??

If not, how can I downgrade to the original 2.1 Eclair?

Try clearing the cache of the Messaging app.

From the home screen:

Menu | Settings | Applications | Manage applications | All | Messaging | Clear cache

If that doesn't work, I'd try the following, in this order:

  1. Force Stop
  2. Restart the phone (off then on)
  3. Clear data (will likely lose your SMS messages)

Well, you can try "Clear data" but that will probably dump all of your messages. Have you power-cycled the phone? –  Al E. Dec 22 '10 at 15:59
wats power-cycle? ive no idea how to do dat –  CMC Dec 22 '10 at 16:18
A last final resort would be to do a factory reset of the phone. You would, however, lose all data and applications in the process. –  Bryan Denny Dec 22 '10 at 19:50
