    Received my new Droid Turbo 64gb . After transferring everything from my droid Maxx, I found there was no select all option. Now faced with individually deleting over 500 emails out of the trash bin. Will a fix be coming?

    Just an FYI that some mail clients have that feature. Kaiten does which is what I use.

    If you're taking about Gmail, I agree, there should be a select all feature.

    Go into your email on your desktop/laptop to access a select all feature. Once your emails are the way you want them, maintain them with your phone.

    In gmail, the option to empty the trash is in the three buttons on the right of the window with Trash or Spam open.

    But you still have to get the emails to the trash can one at a time

    Just curious what to expect when I do get the turbo....are you talking about "selecting all" in the Inbox to move to trash....or when the Trash folder is open and "Selecting All"? And is this in the G Mail app or the stock Mail app? Is it that much different from the Droid Maxx? Because both apps on the Maxx have a " Select All" option.

    Good question, as this is available once you're in the trash folder. As for selecting multiple emails, simply long press the first one to select it, then tap each one thereafter to select multiple emails. Once it's in your trash folder you can then get rid of them all at once. Good luck!

    S5 tap'n

    In the newest G-Mail go to the trash folder, tap the menu key upper right and tap
    "empty trash" At the inbox a quick swipe to the right will dump messages.

    I'm still not clear if G-Mail was what you were asking about.

    I noticed the same thing come from a Droid Razr Maxx where I could easily "Select All" on messages in my folders. I get a lot of "crap" email and do my email primarily on my home computer so having to select each individual email to delete it was unacceptable for me on my new Droid Turbo. For this reason I set out to find an email app that would. I settled on Blue Mail. Not only will it do the "Select All" feature, I find it much better and more visually appealing than the stock installed email app, which I really dislike due to them stripping all the features out of it. Anyway, give Blue Mail a try.

    Both actually . Right now you have to delete 1 at a time or move to a different folder 1 at a time . This is with the stock mail app .
