8830 Message Cleanup

I need some assistance with deleting messages.  I can tell it to delete prior which cleans up everything.  However, is there a way to just delete the SMS messages and leave the emails?


Thanks in advance

Re: 8830 Message Cleanup

In your main Messages folder > menu > View folders > SMS Messages.


Scroll to the date bar at the top of the list > Menu > Delete all prior.
