    OK I'm not sure this has been covered. Is there a way to pick multiple e-mails for delete, without pressing the check mark for each one? This was one of the few things I miss form my BB, (not many though)

    How on earth do you expect the phone to know which ones to delete if you haven't checked them? If you want to delete all messages, then hit the Menu button while in your email. You can hit Select All and then Delete, but you either lose all of them, or have to uncheck the ones you want to keep first. Your question makes no sense.

    I don't think there's a way to, say, select by dragging your finger, if that's what you mean.

    Sorry I wasn't more specific. On a BlackBerry you can touch one message and hold, then touch another above it or below it and the messages between will highlight. IT works like a old windows explorer doing a pick-shift-pick. It was a useful function, one of few convenient features on a BB storm.

    Ahhh! Got ya, now. Never had a BB. Well, unless you find an app for it, I don't think there's a way to do that.
