    Has anyone else run into this problem?? Anyone have any idea how to fix it other than deleting a large chunk of my messages? [​IMG]

    Out of curiosity, how many messages does it take to reach this popup? I've had QUITE a few text messages and have yet to see anything like this.

    Also, does it go by total number of messages on your phone, or does it go by the total in one thread (i.e. one contact)?

    I am getting this. I deleted EVERY TEXT in my phone, and it still says this. Anyone know how to fix?

    Ah this is soo frusterating...Has anyone figured this out. The only thing i figured out is to restore your phone as a brand new phone but then you lose your contacts and photos and everything.

    I think 100k was the limit last I checked. Wowzers!

    You may need to restart the phone after you delete some to get it to realize that it now has room for more. Or just force quit the app and try that first.

    Don't know how to fix your texting issue, but to prevent the contacts issue, sync with iCloud or a Gmail account wirelessly. Then just readd the account after a restore to get them back :)
