sms won't go away

I deleted my old messages, but I did it in conversations menu - deleted old conversations, from outbox/sent mesaagesg all the messages I have sent dissapared but in the inbox they stayed, which means I can't open them . there are just a number and a first line from the messages but I can't delete them or do anything, theu just are. I can't open inbox menu - i can open it from sent messages and so on but not from the inbox!!!

 

What I have to do to get rid of the old messages?
