    How to Delete Multiple Text Msgs?

    Advertisement



    So this will be a shocker to you all. I can mix files and 'hack' my berry BUT something so simple I just cant seem to do..

    When youre in your text message inbox and want to select multiple messages to delete. How the hellllll do you do this? I've tried and tried. I put it in my pocket and when I take it out of my pocket..Oh look, multiple messages are highlighted. BUT I CANT DO IT WHEN I TRY!!!!!!! AH. I've tried keeping my finger ontop of one message, waiting a few seconds then moving it but nothing. So please. someone tell me!!! haha

    Shift + Scroll.

    Oh, you can also delete ALL the messages by highlighting the date, hitting menu, and selecting "Delete Prior".. Just in case anyone didn't know.

    Press finger on the first message u want to delete then while ur finger is still on the screen use another finger to press the last message u want to delete. It will select all messages in between ur fingers. If u have more messages than what can be shown on screen simply highlight 1 message then while finger is still on the message use another finger to select any other message. Now u have multiple messages highlighted, and as long as u don't press the first message u highlighted any message u highlight will become part of the group of selected messages. Now press the delete icon at the bottom of the screen to delete all highlighted messages

    Not sure if that was clear but if u have say 50 messages to delete and at least 2 are highlighted u can scroll down on ur storm like normal and all the messages u scroll over will get highlighted. Then you could delete them if you wish

    How does that work if you have to select multiple messages to delete but they're not in consecutive order?
