Did you recently "Clear Data" from "Google Services Framework"?
That can cause some strange problems & isn't recommended.

A lot of people do it to try "forcing" an OS update, however, it messes with the date & other things such as Location.

I fixed the problem here is the solution for others

I had this going on last week. Here is how I fixed it. "Delete all" does work, but you will lose all you txts. I used SMS backup free. Make a backup, go into your txts and "delete all", then restore your backup. The empty threads will not be restored. Seemd to fix mine and the problem is not back (yet).
