    Default Deleting Text Messages

    I am unable to delete text messages from my maxx. I know how to manually select each and select delete. The problem is my phone just doesn't do anything. These text threads are from 2012, so I know they are slowing down my system. I could always do a reset, but I don't want to lose all texts.

    Any ideas, or does anyone else have this problem?

    I've never seen that before. Are you using the stock messaging app? What happens if you long press the thread? Or if you open the thread and press the Menu button? Do you get a Delete option? Does that do anything?

    Default Re: Deleting Text Messages

    Well i got frustrated last night so i went through the notions of deleting, and saw no changes. I put my phone on the charger and went to bed. I wake up and they are now gone. Who knows how long it took. I'm now guessing it was just overwhelming the processor for a time.

    Thanks though. If anything if suggest deleting more often than once a year, lol.

    I went through the phone last week to clean house. I noticed that it took a long time for the text to disappear. Didn't think it was working for a while.
