I just updated phone, now text messaging won't open

I tried turning on and off several times and taking the battery out. Nothing happening.  Anyone have any ideas?

Ice Cream Sandwich is a major OS update, and it takes a while to completely install and optimize your phone.  During this time the phone can act wonky and the battery life be worse than normal.  Give it about 72 hours and see if things improve.  There also are a lot of threads about the update on this forum if you have further questions, if you want to do a search.  In the meantime, see if a system cache clear helps (it shouldn't erase your data):

Power down phone

Hold volume up/down & power simultaneously

Use volume down to navigate to 'Recovery', use volume up to select

Should see screen with triangle and exclamation point next to an Android

Press volume up/down simultaneously

Use volume rocker to navigate to 'wipe cache' and use power button to select

Once finished, use volume rocker to navigate to 'reboot system now' and use power button to select
