Hello everyone! I am using an HTC currently running Android 4.4.2 however the issue first happened on an earlier version (not sure which). Ok so a while ago I selected a SMS text message and went to either delete or lock it but somehow I hit the wrong option or it glitched but ALL of my text messages sent/received before a certain date were locked. This now causing an issue becaus there are thousands of messages that cannot be auto deleted once limits are reached. I need to clear these out it forces me to go one thread at a time because if I select multiple threads to delete it will only delete unlocked messages. In all my searching I have not found any record of multiple text messages being locked or unlocked. If this is incorrect please point to those options/apps. I have tried to back them up, delete and restore but it just restores the locked status and when I try to only resore messages past a certain date the restore fails. TL;DR: thousands of text messages are now somehow locked and I need to delete them without going one by one.
