I have a phone which has thousands of SMS. Now it's very difficult to delete them all and the SMS app always hangs. I have tried the following to no avail:
They all just hang.
I am also trying to "Clear Data" the Dialer Storage App but it's not pressable, even after "Force Stop". How can I make the Clear Data button pressable?
Or, is there another way to delete all SMS aside from Factory Reset?

You could always download Handcent and use its "Force Deletion" feature. I've seen that work for many others. But depending on how many SMS you have, you will need to let it sit for a while.
