Today after my phone died and I plugged it in a message appeared saying that my phone storage was low and i needed to delete some text messages to receive the ones that were currently coming in.

I do not know what kind of phone it is but it's an android operating system.

I have tried deleting messages in the application and i also tried deleting its storage/memory through the managing applications settings. I have also turned my phone on and off.

The messages are still not going away and I cannot send or receive texts messages

Which phone is it?
How are you deleting the messages?
Have you tried to clear the App Data from the Messaging App? Settings--> Applications--> Manage--> All--> Messaging--> Clear Data
If you want to back them up, try an App like "SMS Backup+" from the Play Store then delete them & restore them--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
Have you tried to clear the cache using an App like "History Eraser"--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

To find the model number of your phone, go to Settings - scroll to the bottom of the Settings page and tap About device. Your phones' model number will appear under the heading Legal information.

Just go into your sms app, press & hold on the conversation and look for the delete option.

But it's not like you have anything to hide :).

There are Apps you can use to set certain conversations as "Private".
I think Handcent has that--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

Anyone else starting to wonder if NoDiRa is trying to cover up something illegal?

As you delete the conversation on the phone, it'll remain gone.
