SMS takes forever to delete?

    I am trying to erase all my messages in my phone, but I have a very long message thread (over 3000) that takes FOREVER to delete. I have tried deleting it before back when it was in the 2000's, but it never did. It didn't delete any of the messages actually. I am using GO SMS and am rooted running 1.5 Das BAMF Remix.

    Is there a faster way to delete text messages?

    When you have that many, it does tale a while. Also, I find that having that many also slows down your messaging app all together. Well that's how it was on my Droid and g1 and ever since then, I've just had a habbit of deleting

    The only other way, is to open the thread, and delete individual messages within it, which obviously will take a while. However, if you're having issues with it not deleting at all, it might be worth starting to whittle away at em. But as was mentioned, it really can take a while after you get in the hundreds. I know it takes probably 3-5 seconds or so to delete every hundred messages or so (if I have 200 in a thread, it takes about 10 seconds to delete, etc).
