    Deleting Mass SMS texts

    Advertisement



    Is there an easy way to select a lot of messages and delete them? I have way too many to do it one by one, but at the same time need to keep some sporadically placed ones and do not want to do a complete wipe of messages.

    I believe you should be able to hold down the pound (#) and use the trackball to highlight those messages you want to delete. It will then prompt you from there as to what you want done with those messages.

    If you push the DEL key after highlighting the messages you want to delete it will ask you if you want to delete these messages. If you confirm the deletion presto the whole group of highlighted messages will be deleted. Its a pretty nifty feature that I use often as I get loads of SMS's.

    If you want to delete a particular number select search sender and then select the date and hit delete prior...... Or you can pick a particular day and hit delete prior
