    Shouldn't there be an option to delete messages after so many days automatically. I noticed my phone's been lagging a bit when going through programs and also whenever I view text messages it will pop-up with force close or wait.

    Right now I'm deleting a bunch of messages, but it's taking forever. :mad:

    I just nuke whole text threads after they hit ~200 messages.

    Well, it took about a good 10 mins or so, not too sure because I left my phone while doing other things...

    Phone's running better now, but it would still be nice to have that option in an update. I guess for now I'll just do as you do (delete threads around 200). ;)

    What Android needs to do is not try and load every text message in a thread, just the last 20 or so then fetch more are you scroll through them.

    That is a little odd that the Market does it, but not the texts.

    I would equate that to different development teams.

    I'd say it a matter of efficiency. If they did only show 15 at once it would take forever to read things. That would get real annoying real fast.

    I delete most texts after I get them, unless there is some reason to hold onto them.
