How do I select more than media file at once?

I've searched everywhere for this answer and can't find ANYTHING!! How do I select more than one file, or more than one message with my Storm? I've done it accidently but have no idea how!! I want to be able to highlight or select more than one file to either delete in bulk or send all at once. Please Help!

Re: How do I select more than media file at once?

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!


To highlight a contiguous block of messages, touch the first one, leave that finger on that first item, then touch a second one. Those two plus all in between will be selected. Now select another one (in the same direction)...hold that and drag your finger to scroll. Release and retouch to continue the selection block. Repeat until you have everything you want selected in a contiguous block and you can now deal with them en masse. Be careful with the first selection...if you leave your finger on the very first item for too long without selecting the second one, it will interpret your desire to be a filter based on the item you are hovering on.


Good luck and enjoy!
