Re: Text Message Delete



You will need to use the Desktop Manager software.


Go to Backup/Restore -> Advanced.


Select SMS Messages

Click the Clear button.


This will delete all your SMS messages but this is the only way to get rid of the messages.


The reason: The database on the Handheld is corrupted and when the software tries to delete the entries the database index doesnt show / access them.
