I have a problem... I have messages stuck in my Outbox... whenever I try to send them it shows "Sending Failed" and when I try to delete them it changes to "Deferred" and doesnt get deleted. When I connect my phone through PC Suite, outbox shows "0" message. I am unable to delete those messages from my Outbox.... Please help...
