    I was goofing around my phone and i found out how to delete a message and a call with out deleting all of it like when you go to call log and click clear it removes every call or in your message t removes the whole thing instead of just one. well to delete only one call number go to the number and click & hold it until a little window pops up and it will give you a menu for that number go to the last one remove call this will only delete that one call. same thing works for the SMS message just open up the conversation you were having with the person and click and hold the part you want to delete and and a menu pops up and click delete. Hope this helped out the people that didn't know about this.:D

    I want to know how to delete all the SMS I have gotten at once...with the sidekick, you clicked on the folder they all ended up in and could delete the contents of the folder but on the G1 you have to do as the poster indicated, one at a time. I have found the "DEL" key + "Enter" key combo works pretty fast though. Annoying to have to confirm each sms delete though.

    Or you could be me and accidentally delete every text message when you're thinking you're just deleting one thread.

    Oh well, nothing of importance lost. :rolleyes:

    I meant, I get many SMS from many different numbers, so no threads, just various messages and each thread/message takes time to delete. I want a "delete all" feature.

    They will only if you have the Google Voice settings to forward your SMS messages.
