    Exclamation Messages Won't Load!

    I'm trying to load my messages, but they won't come up. I get a white/blue screen like the header and background of the messages screen, but not buttons or messages will come up.
    I still receive texts, but when I click on the banner to reply I am taken to the messages app and again, it will not load. This is quite frustrating because I can't use messaging, and who calls nowadays? haha.

    If you can help I'd appreciate it. I tried a restore and it didn't help.

    After you've restored, du you setup the phone as new or restore from a backup?

    Same thing happened to me. I sent myself pictures. I guess the file was too big and it kicked me off when I try to access the iMessages app. I tried to log in then out but it still won't let me access it still. Can anyone help?!?

    The is showing that everything should be operating normally. Have you tried turning OFF iMessage and then turning it back ON?

    Hi everyone, I know this was ages ago but I thought I'd share my solution in case anyone else has this problem. What happened with me, and with others in other forums, is that a particular thread or message was causing the problem. I'd go to open the message and all I'd get was a white screen with the blue bar at the top. So, I went into contacts, pressed 'send message' to a contact whose message wasn't causing the problem, then I pressed back to messages. You then swipe to the left on the thread that's causing the problem, and delete it. Sadly this means you will lose all that person's messages, but you can try opening it from there and deleting it on the thread. Didn't work for me though. Hope that helps! It was the only thing that worked for me after about three days of total frustration and resetting!

    I had the problem stated above! Send myself a photo from my mac to my iPad but also received it on my old iPhone 4, and that just didn't work. Your solution worked like a charm! No need to reset your phone and restore a backup! Thanks!!

    My daughter was having this same problem on my old iPhone 3GS that I gave her. Thank you, Thank you firefly90!!!! Your method worked like a charm! I'm not tech savvy at all and would NEVER have figured this out. Created an acct on here just to post this . Only thing I did different was delete just the offending message coming in from her friend. Was a mwav file. That way the rest of the thread is still there.
