    SMS often freezes, stalls and send my phone into overdrive for no reason.

    SMS continues to perform poorly-img_20140718_132852.png

    The picture above is my SMS currently as it tries to load a simple message.

    Attachment 285737

    I cropped out the recipients name but basically I have to sit at this screen for 10 minutes while I wait for SMS to sort out its ****. Has anyone found a solution to this?

    Running 10.2.1.2179 z10 stl 100-3

    I found a number of problems with both contact and sms/mms can be fixed by doing a clean install - and only restoring select App Data.

    OP, what OS version are you running? I had the same issue too but it's 100% solved since 10.2.1

    This has happened to my phone (Q5) maybe 3 or 4 times if a certain text conversation has gotten too long or includes to many photos etc. I found that the best way to solve it is to delete that particular convo and then restart my phone (not a hard restart, just a normal one). Solves the problem every time. The same thing used to happen with my old HTC.

    Please read my original post for that information. I've had this issue across all versions.

    Some people have had success by switching to light theme and then back to dark theme. Or to dark theme and back to light depending on which setting you have on.

    Not a fix but a fast work around.

    Also if you don't need to save the text messages. Delete them all and start from scratch. Most have had success with this also.

    I had this problem with earlier version of bb10. You can side load some Sms bar files to speed it up. It cleared up for me very quickly. Search for some bar files on crackberry.

    There are SMS bar files? Are they SMS files of a different version for the os? I am hoping 10.3 clears up my issues.

    Experiencing a lot of problems with SMS too. Freezes, sending texts to multiple parties is horrible, don't work right.

    Agreed.

    Everyone else that has BlackBerry 10 that I know has no issues. It does it only a few times a day now though.

    I'm hoping an os update will fix the issue. It seems to happen to specific contacts more frequently than others.

    Refer to this thread and load the bar files. Worked great for my q10 when I had issues.
