    How long does a SMS message "session" last? On my old blackberry, messages would just keep rolling off, you could scroll back about a week or so, but I have yet to figure out how to cut down on how long the messages stick around on the Incredible. I activated my new phone around 2 weeks ago, and a chat thread with one person has reached over 850 texts, so now it takes forever to open!

    Is there a way to set how long the messages are saved?

    Kinda tough to describe, hope someone understands wth I'm talking about!

    Don't know if there are retention settings off the top of my head but you could just delete them.

    I know I can delete each message individually, or delete the whole thread, but I don't want to do either :(

    Download a different SMS app, like Handcent.

    I believe it has settings for how long it keeps SMS messages.
