    I have been trying to delete messages and everytime I try to do it, it doesnt do it, or it doesnt happen fast enough. I can go back to the main screen after selecting to delete messages and then go back into the messages and the phone will not bring up any messages like it freezes the messaging app. Can someone please help me do a mass deletion of all messages? Or does anyone know why my phone freezes or can't delete messages fast?

    Ya, im having this same EXACT problem. The only texts I have been able to delete is when it only has 1 text in the thread. but i'm trying to delete a thread that has over 5000 texts and all it does is freeze and ive tried Hard/solf restarts and tried again and nothing works. I've also tried to delete a thread that only has 7 texts total and it does the same.

    I have the Droid Eris btw.

    Thx for the help =)

    tap and hold and choose delete for individual texts and select delete. For a whole thread, go to the thread and hit menu and delete and say yes.. for 5000 posts? maybe wait a while to see if it will delete them or you may need to delete one at at time.. Mine will delete at least 200 no problem.. For a mass delete just go to your main message screen and click menu.. then hit delete and click on the Xs for each thread you want deleted and hit delete..

    very true and the user is only as good as much as they understand the phone. If it doesn't work one way try different things hard reset is never the answer lol :icon_eek:

    Email multiple deletes

    Can one of you tell me how to delete the messages from my email trash bin without having to do them one at a time. I have over 400 deleted messages and really ain't looking forward to doing them one at a time. Thanks for any help you can provide.:)

    Just hit menu when you are in the delete screen and choose "select all" and then delete.

    Are you giving it time to delete the 2000 messages? like 5 minutes? or more? Its not freezing im guessing just doing its job but it takes time to delete that many messages..
