    A cluttered phone bugs me. I go to the app My Files, click Documents and all I see are:
    [series of numbers].txt

    Two questions:
    1. What are they?
    2. What happens if I delete them?

    Text documents. Open them and see what they contain. They're tiny files so I'd probably leave them as is.

    I don't understand what they say, that's the thing. I've opened them before.

    Ok. There's a lot of them and they just bug me, that's all.

    Sometimes other programs refer to those txt documents for instructions. I'd recommend not touching them.
