    OMG. I just realized I can no longer "select multiple" when deleting messages, it's all or nothing?! Really???

    Are you using the stock messaging app? If so, you can try a 3rd Party texting app like Handcent or Chomp ... I use Handcent. It's awesome :)

    You can select multiple recipients on the stock app.. all you do is type their name in the top area.... try rebooting your phone..

    Shhh.. jackie :D lol... you can long press on a message, it will turn blue, then tap the other messages you would like to delete and touch the trashcan in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

    When you long pressa log to delete, you can then click any log you want and delete multiple. It's like shift clicking in windows :)

    I don't use the stock texting app, so I'm not sure ... is the a "Main Screen" where you can see all your "Conversations" with different people? I would *think* from there you should be able to long press a "Conversation" and delete it from there ... if not, I have no clue. That's why I use Handcent. I find it sooooo much better :)

    No, no, no. In a conversation, I used to be able to press the phone menu button and one of the choices was select multiple. After selecting that, check boxes would open on each text. I could check which ones to delete, leaving texts I wanted to save unchecked. So, if no one knows if this can somehow be rectified, do you know if it's actually a feature in Handcent?
