    Text Message Limit

    Just upgraded from my OG Droid to the Bionic, loving it!

    One thing I noticed is my old option to check off "Delete Old Messages" is gone. Now you can set a limit to 1000 max, but you can't uncheck the "Delete Old Messages" box so it never deletes anything. Any reason why they did this? Anyone have a way around it yet?

    Thanks a ton!

    I thought about using that! So there is no limit in that app? Even though it uses the stock app to retrieve the messages?

    Thank you!

    Open text. From all threads or a individual thread depending on what you want, then Menu>select multiple. You get ghosted check boxes. Hit the ones you want and then delete
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    Thank you but I'm looking for the option where the phone doesn't delete my messages automatically. Not trying to delete them myself.

    For example...the OG droid you could uncheck "Delete Old Messages" and it would NEVER delete messages. Now you can't do that on the Bionic and can only set a limit. So at 1000 texts, they will begin to delete.

    Idk if there is a limit but I set each conversation to have a limited of 400 texts with auto deletion of the old ones. I personally don't want thousands of texts on my phone, that's why I set a limit.

    Just found it in the Settings > Advanced > Application Settings!

    Love this app, thanks for the recommendation!
