    This is the first phone I've ever owned that doesn't seem to have separate boxes for messages sent, received, etc.

    How do you delete messages? For instance I've still got the welcoming message from Verizon and normally I would have just deleted it right when I got it but I can't find out how to do it.

    Now I don't want to delete everything at once like clearing a cache, I want to delete them one at the time.

    Try opening the messaging app and pressing Menu and see if you have the option to delete threads.


    I've changed the prefix tag to support BTW since you are looking for help :)

    Thanks, that was it. I didn't realize that the menu button was used everywhere. I thought you just used it to pick your home screen.

    But the only option is to delete the entire conversation, you can't delete specific messages. Is this the way it's supposed to be?

    Long press the individual message from within the thread, the choose delete from the menu that pops up.

    When in doubt, try pressing Menu or long pressing on the screen. You'll get all sorts of other options! :)

    When in doubt, don't lie to your girlfriend about who you're talking to. Then you don't have to delete individual text messages. :cool:

    :D

    I was referring to messages from her. Normally I would just delete our little short messages like "ok" or something like that. But this phone keeps them all under who sent them and not individually.
