    Is there a way to delete multiple text messages instead of one individually because it takes forever to when you have a lot. I dont want to delete the whole threads though. Is there an app or shortcut? thanks.

    Always specify the app. Not everyone is using the same apps as you.

    Either it's by the thread or by the message. I don't know of any other way.

    You can use SMS backup and restore and edit the file in excel. Then you restore that file. Kind of a pain but easier than one by one if you've got a lot to delete.
