My phone, HTC Droid Incredible, was working perfectly fine. Then it just stopped letting me open up my text message threads. All it does is say loading and I left it for about 10 minutes and still nothing.

Everything else on my phone works. I've restarted it four times and it's still not working.

Any suggestion?


You could try backing up your messages with something like SMS Backup & Restore and then wiping the Messaging apps data and cache.


I had a similar symptom once and it was caused by the SIM card coming loose, so try this: turn the phone off completely, eject the SIM card, replace the SIM card, and turn the phone back on again.
