How to Delete old deleted text messages on Tilt 2?

Hi all,  still love my Tilt 2!  This forum and XDA have been such a great help!

Here is my question - using TouchFlo, if I select Messages, then click on All Messages, then change the folder to Deleted Items, I have a ton of old deleted text messages I would like to clear out.  I can't seem to find a way to do it other than 1 at a time, which would take forever. Are there any other more expedient ways to clear this folder out?  Even just a "Delete all" would be fine, I don't really want anything in there.

Also, is there a way for it to clear this folder upon exit or something?

 

Thanks for the help!

Re: How to Delete old deleted text messages on Tilt 2?

In teh previous version WinMo (6.1) I use the "Menu", option 7 (Select Messages), option 1 "All" and then I would use the "Delete" (option4?) to delete all the selected messages.

Hi thanks for the reply, but that does not seem to be the way in WM 6.5.  Does anyone else know how to delete all the text messages at once?

 

Thanks!

Can't you just go to tools> empty deleted items? That's how I delete old messages. Or if you wanted to deleted ALL your messages tools>clear messages.

Sorry, I don't see Tools and any menu options. Where do you see that on the Tilt 2?

Re: How to Delete old deleted text messages on Tilt 2?

So, in the text messages folder, go to Menu - Tools - Clear "Messages (Text MMS)"

 

This will delete all text messages and remove them from the deleted folder...all at the same time.

 

Tip of the day....(I hate this version of Windows).  In order to select multiple messages...in one of your Messaging folders.  Menu - Select Messages - Several.  This will allow you to just tap which ones you want and delete, copy, whatever.

Re: How to Delete old deleted text messages on Tilt 2?

Sorry, I must be dense. Here is what I am doing, I must not be finding "text messages folder":

 

I hit Start - Messaging- Text (then my text message Inbox comes up). I select Menu, , the choices are New-Delete-Reply-Replay All-Forward-Send/Receive-Follow Up-Mark as Unread-Move...

 

I don't see ny Select Messages for multiple select in the Deleted Items folder (good tip I hope I have it on my phone), I do see it in Inbox.

 

I am interested in Deleting messages from Deleted Items folder.

 

I am on AT&T HTC Tilt 2, stock ROM...

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks!

Re: How to Delete old deleted text messages on Tilt 2?

You're in the right spot....you have to scroll down after you select Menu....it's near the bottom of the pop up box.  You'll then see Move - Go To - Tools - MMS Options

Re: How to Delete old deleted text messages on Tilt 2?

There are a few more menus like this that go below the bottom edge of the screen.

This phone is an odd mix of great features with some weird designs.

Thanks for the gang delete I saw several and wasn't sure what that meant.

 

I still like the Tilt 2 only wish it was faster and didn't lag so much.

 

Hey can you over clock this phone?
