    Is there any app for deleting old SMS/MMS?

    Well, not all of them, but I want to manually delete SMS/MMS in threads and have the option to delete maybee messages that are over 2 weeks old etc...

    I'm using SMS Backup+ to backup the messages, because I want to keep them all. (Both for buisiness and personal reasons...)
    But I don't need them in the phone, and the SMS programs (using Handcent right now) are getting very slow when my treads are hitting 500+ (I actually have some threads with 4000+ messages...).

    But then I want to delete some messages...but not all of them, and not one by one...


    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Delete whole thread on Handcent...

    Handcent > Long press on thread you wish to delete > Delete

    Selectively delete SMS/MMS within a thread...

    Handcent > Select thread and open > Menu > Batch mode (a check box appears next to each SMS/MMS and you can choose > Menu > Delete selected

    Hope this helps. :D

    Don't want to delete the whole thread, and in a thread with 500+, or even 1000+ messages, it will take forever to mark the boxes of the ones I want to delete :(

    But thanxs anyways :)
