    Multiple Message Deletion

    Advertisement



    Howdy all. I finally have a decent BB that is up and running!! I have been looking at all of these threads over the weekend, and the owner's manual, and can't find an answer to this probably stupid question....is there a way to delete all of the messages in your inbox or SMS inbox at once? I feel kinda silly for asking, since I have a feeling that the answer is here somewhere and I just can't find it. Alas, being a newbie is not always enjoyable....

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello there .

    Yes there is, actually. To delete multiple messages whether they are SMS/MMS or emails:

    Highlight date in inbox>Open Menu>Select delete prior.

    This will delete all messages prior to the highlighted date.

    Hope that helps.

    You can also go into your messages list, hold the shift key and select multiple messages and choose delete. Doing it this way will allow the messages to reconcile if you're on a BES server. Doing the delete prior won't reconcile your changes.

    Does this work on all BBs?
    I can't seem to get this to work on my 8820.

    No, I wasn't...

    Wow, it does work.

    When I first read it, I thought it would allow me to selectively/randomly pick items items that were not sequential. This is more like the top and bottom of a list...
    Not what I thought, but still very cool.
