    How do delete all text messages

    Advertisement



    Brand new user. This is probably pretty basic. Isn't there a way to delete all SMS messages, or do I have to do it one by one? Thanks.

    Re: How do delete all text messages

    if you have your email and sms separated, its easy...just scroll to the most recent date, click trackball and choose delete prior

    if you don't have them separated, the easiest way i have found is to click menu in the message app, choose search and under type, choose sms

    then once the search is done, go to most recent date, click trackball and choose delete prior.

    welcome to the stacks

    open the folder where all your sms messages are & hit the menu button -> view folder -> click sms inbox, it'll then take you back to the folder showing only the recieved sms messages, highlight the latest date and click menu again, then delete prior.

    let us know if this helps. this is how i do it anyways.

    you can repeat the steps for the sent sms messages as well

    I can help you, update your OS to get them seperate or unlock a vendor theme that also allows you to seperate them. Just let me know.

    Best Way

    You do not have to go thru the menus.

    Hit "Alt A". That will show you text messages only. Then you can choose "menu, delete prior" to delete.
