    I have found that if the thread you are trying to delete is huge, it will take a while. If it's only a small thread it is almost instantly. I think anything over 500 is when it starts to really slow down, but YMMV.
     
  3. When it's a big conversation, as Kitsap said, it'll take a long time. I found the best way to do it is after you tell it to delete, click the home key and just leave it alone. If you're deleting a convo there's no reason to have your SMS box open, right? It seems to go decently fast if you do it that way, hope that helps.

    I really glad i've seen this because i was just having the same issue. Trying to delete a 3000 text threat because every time i go on it the phone slows down dramatically. Kills my phone to try and delete it :(

    I delete my messages at around 100 texts. There are apps I believe that will save important text conversations to your SD card.
    I ran into the same issue initially and it took forever to delete a 1000 text thread. I now delete at around 100 and everything is cool.

  9. Yea, I have 2 people that i text with constantly. I don't even bother trying to delete those threads. One has over 1000 and i just got the phone about a week ago. Most of the time i'll delete a thread when i'm done having the conversation with the person.

    Best solution that I've found is an app called Delete Old Texts from the market. You can use that to chop the threads down to a reasonable size so they'll delete faster.

    Also, if you long press on an important text, you can lock it so it stays around and doesn't get deleted.
