    I use Handcent as my SMS program. I try to delete all threads (I have test history) and it doesn't take effect. All threads are still there after it asks me. I have cleared data and cache's on both the stock and Handcent apps in my app manager. When trying to delete all threads with my stock program, my phone typically freezes up and forces close. Anyone have similiar experiences, have answers? I even uninstalled Handcent thinking that would clear everything, re-installed and everything was still there.

    There is a application in the market that will slowly delete your messages in the background. I can't remember what it is, but I'm sure someone could shed some light here. You could also try deleting your messages thread by thread.

    The one app that I know of is called "delete old messages".
    I've never used it, don't let my old messages get large enough that it's a problem (I don't text enough that it's hard for me to keep up with keep this clean)
