    Default delete texts

    Still learning on Samsung Galaxy Ring; how can I delete all texts in a thread rather than just delete one at a time? I played around with touch, slide, etc. with no luck.

    That can vary by app. So what app are you talking about?

    For a couple of the apps I have used, it's tapping and holding on the specific thread. Then you'll have the option to delete it

    Default Re: delete texts

    I'm using Messenger. I press a text and app has delete and a few other commands but will only delete that one text. If I tap a few times, that one text just fills the screen.

    Did you try the solution posted by UJ95x? Long press the thread (conversation) and select the delete option.

    Default Re: delete texts

    When you're within the thread, what happens when you tap the menu button? Is there a Delete option? Does that delete the whole thread?

    Default Re: delete texts

    Yes, it says copy msg/copy msg text/lock msg/forward/view msg details. But I can only delete 1 msg at a time rather than a group.

    NOTE: I figured it out, there's a trashcan on top right side, I press it and it has a Select All check and will delete thread.

    thanks
