    I would like to either be able to keep my messages for a certain amount of time (10-30 days, or so) or for a certain number of messages (25-30 per contact)....I would like to be able to do one of these.

    Is there a way to set this in Handcent?

    Oooh, I never thought about that when I installed it, I just assumed that it would import that setting from the stock messenger...
    But we all know what assuming does... :)

    Just looked and there is no way to currently do this through handcent. Should shoot an email off to them requesting :) Their pretty good about getting in features people want.

    [edit] Looked further into it, open up your stock messaging app and go into settings, you should be able to set the limits there and I believe that carries over into handcent as well

    That was my thinking as well. I had it set to 50 in there. Just to see if it actually worked, I changed it to 30. My messages that are over 30 already stayed there.

    If thought there would be a way in Handcent to do this.

    handcent message limit

    Has anybody found a limit yet? I thought the limit was 1000, but I just broke that. I'm now at 1004 and counting. . .
