Can you delete multiple messages at one time?
The owner's manual says:
To delete several messages on the All messages screen, press MENU
while on the All messages screen, tap Delete, select the messages you
want to delete, and then tap Delete.
But it doesn't really do that, it wants to delete entire threads.
I want to keep (for now) some of the messages in a thread, but not all of them and I don't really want to have to delete one at a time.
Anyone know if that can be done?

okay - hopefully this will help:
All messages screen - press menu and select delete. As you said, you can select which messages to delete. Notice, the "X" in the box is grayed out until you mark it. Once marked, the "X" in the box turns red. At this point, you can check off what ever you want to get rid of, and then press delete.
If you want to erase all threads, go to all threads, press menu - delete, and then press menu again and you'll see the option to delete all messages.
If you want to delete messages within a thread, go into the particular thread, locate the chat message you want to delete, press and hold to see the option to delete message. Only that message in the thread should be deleted.

Thank you. Exactly what I was looking for.
I have another question for you. How did you find that? The marketplace search isn't very good. The "old" handango (and others, probably even iTunes) has much better organization of apps and searching. So how do you find an app that is specific to a type of function?

Re: Can you delete multiple messages at one time?
yes u can.. press and hold over text u want to keep, 'lock' it, repeat for any others worth saving and lock those too.. Then.. delete the entire thread... you will be prompted to delete ALL, including locked messages, or everything but the locked messages.. thats one way, without needing to get yet ANOTHER app..
