Deleting on the handheld

Is there a way to delete several or all the messages at the same time on the handheld?

Re: Deleting on the handheld

Open your messages folder, and


1- scroll to the top of the window > Menu > Delete all prior, will delete ALL your messages total.


2- Scroll to ANY date bar separator and click Menu > Delete all Prior, and that will delete on the messages from that date and back.


3. To delete a number of consecutive listed messages, scroll to the first messsage > PRESS and HOLD the left shift key and SCROLL down across the consective messages you wish to delete > Menu > Delete (or depress the DELETE key right of the L character and delete).


Good luck.
