I don't have Handcent (or an Eris), so I can't speak to it specifically, but I would hazard a guess that the problem is the sheer volume of texts it's trying to delete. Taking a long time to delete so many texts (giving the impression of freezing) might be what's happening, or it may just be too big of a task for the OS to handle and it just freezes. Why would you ever need to store 2000 or 5000 texts per thread anyway? Try setting you limit at 200 or 500 and see if you still have the same problem.

I'm not even sure what I have my limits set to, because I only keep threads from certain people in my inbox at all, and I tend to delete those myself when they're around 100, just because of the issue I know existed on the G1.
If you want to keep 5,000 messages in one thread for specific people, I'd just suggest that you make sure to periodically delete threads from other people, and realize that you'll have some work to do if you ever decide that you don't want the 5,000 message threads anymore...
Of course, everything I've said in this thread is my own opinion/observation. Take what you will from it. Not trying to tell you how to manage your conversations!
As well, if you want to delete all items in the trash folder/label, if you go to gmail.com on your computer, all you have to do is click on the trash folder and then click "empty trash." Boom! Done!
No worries! SOMEONE mentioned e-mails in this thread and the fact that the gmail app doesn't allow you to "select all" in the trash can.
As well, contacts are much easier to manage via gmail.com if you've got a lot to edit/delete/move to different groups.
Now, back on topic...Haha!
