    I can't delete any of my messages from Handcent or the default messaging app. What should I do to get rid of them? It is really bothering me.

    How many have you built up?

    There's a bit of an issue with building up too many messages (like over a thousand), that it won't be able to delete them too well

    and can you delete them one at a time?

    There is an app if you want to delete all the messages by a certain date... lol, it's in the market. It might do what you want.

    Delete Old Message by JADS Limited...

    I don't think it allows the discriminate selection by thread, just ALL messages past a certain date. So just beware, it will apply the deletion to ALL threads...
    But for the people who cannot delete at all I think this might help.

    If you are worried about losing some threads then there are SMS, MMS etc., backup apps as well you can use prior to deletion.


    :)
