    Can't figure out how to delete old messages in Handcent.......is this even a setting in there? Ideally, it'd be nice to delete all messages older than a specific date, or cap each thread at 100 messages. Thanks in advance.

    i dont think you can do it in handcent; i just set my message cap in the stock messaging app and it will also limit them in handcent

    use batch mode to select several sms, then delete them..

    turns out using the stock messaging app to cap messages doesn't work in handcent.

    i find it hard to believe there isn't a setting anywhere in handcent to cap convos at, say, 100 messages, or auto-delete all messages older than xx/xx/xxxx date. there really should be a way to do this in handcent.
