    The problem is your phone CANT go to sleep when deleting. What i did was when i get ready to delete a large conversation over 300 text i put my screen time out to be 10 mins and i let the phone sit. do not use any other apps or receive a phone call, just let it sit til the conversation goes away, dont even close out of the message app. normally takes about 5 mins for messages over 400. this helped me.

    Did you ever get your 4500 texts deleted? I have 2 text threads that I can't delete, onr is 2600 long and the other is 700. I've done what others suggested and put my backlight timeout on never and let it sit for like 20 minutes for that smaller thread and nothing happened. I'm getting tired of this and I've only had the phone 2 weeks.

    I love the phone. it's great

    YES i finally got it to delete =]!!!!!

    DOWNLOAD 'SMS Quick Delete'.

    it took me many tries before I was ready to throw it out the window.

    my thread with (actually over 5,000 msgs) -


    THIS IS WHAT I DID:
    open the app (quick delete), select ONLY 1 thread!!! then hit delete - i went to bed at 11, woke up at 4 it was froze.. woke up at 630 and they were finally deleted.

    left my phone plugged in all night so the backlight was on.

    when it deletes the messages either in the Messages app or the quick delete app you cannot touch the phone!!! backlight must remain on and must be extreeeemly patient!


    thanks
    aj

    cause of freezing?

    there seem to be 2 different issues being discussed in this thread, freezing up 'randomly' and freezing up when you try to delete too many messages. suggest moving one of these issues for a different thread for clarity.

    Hit the messages icon > You will be in ALL MESSAGES. hit menu --you will see delete--- hit delete and a box will appear by each thread--check the box and the whole thread disappears, so you can clean your text box out in seconds, If you want to just knock off a few texts. Just press/hold the message down and a box will appear asking you what to do--delete is an option.

    I wondered what the text limit was--thanks for letting us know.

    Hope this helps.

    On the freezing phone---I have read posts on that before but not personally experienced by me and I have downloadd third party apps,

    i haven't had this issue yet *fingers crossed* my wife has the moto droid and it automatically starts deleting the oldest msg after about 250 or so in a thread, i'm the type that likes to keep an archive though so i usually don't delete messages of the people i regularly talk to

    It would take you less time to clear your inbox everyday than it would to post here. That is absolutely retarded that you say you don't have enough time. It takes 30 seconds. Do it will you're taking a sh*t, I mean c'mon.

    This may be a repeat ?

    New to the forum..curious if there is a way to just select multiple txt & delete...not a whole thread...just maybe say 3 or 4 txt at a time & delete!!?? It's driving me crazy trying to figure it out. I know if i select one to delete & select another IMMEDIATELY after it will delete both...But in a conversation w/ over 400 txt it gets to be a pain :mad:. Also...is there a way to scoll to the top of a conversation w/ someone, OTHER than manually rolling all the way up to the top?! New to the phone :greendroid:...just wondering if anyone knows how to do any of these...thanks!
