    Hello,

    I'm a new Droid X user. I love the phone so far, but have a question about text messaging. In particular, it appears I cannot delete individual texts withing a conversation. There has to be a way I'm just missing yes?

    Thanks,
    Skarn

    If you wanted to delete more than one at a time within a conversation, you could also hit the menu button and find batch mode. (Although I am on handcent and Im not sure if the stock messenger has batch mode but it should.)

    Tough when that female friend suddenly sends you inappropriate pictures, isn't it? I mean, you don't want to lose all those other texts, but can't have the wife seeing the pictures either...
