    Okay so last night I tried to delete a large thread of about 3,000 messages with the sms quick delete app I got by recomendation off this forum. I put my screen time out on never and let it sit over night. I woke up around 4 am to check on it and it was on my home screen but the thread was still there . I tried again before I fell asleep and the same thing happened this mourning. I even restarted the phone and it was still there. Does this happen to anyone else and ate there any other and delete apps out there?

    I use SMS Backup and Restore.

    This way, the messages are backed up, in case I ever want to have them back.

    And the delete feature works. I've deleted 3900 messages at one time. It takes a couple of minutes, but it gets done. It also will tell you its success rate. It will say 2913 messages 0 failed 2913 deleted, etc.

    lemmon13 you may want to just hard wipe that phone (take a one time loss) and just use that SMS backup and restore going forward...i was just looking for a way to do what you're looking for and after 2 hours helping the same customer...no dice
