    I hit the three dots in the top right then hit settings and the trash button is under cloud sync.

    I don't see it on my Gallery either. Are you using the stock Gallery from Samsung?

    If you're using something different, I suspect that you'll be able to empty the trash from whatever cloud storage that you use. You may have to do it from a browser. If that's the case, you may find a setting that will allow you to bypass the trash folder.

    Stock Gallery app. From the main page, hit the 3 dots, upper right corner, click on settings. You'll see trash. Inside the trash setting are copies of every photo deleted in the past 15 days. Photos may be retrieved. After 15 days, they vanish.
    At least this is in the at&t version.

    Nope. I see that you're using Samsung's Cloud Sync. I don't. I wonder if that's the difference?

    I have that.
    On T-Mobile. Never looked before, but they won't delete either. Just have to wait, I guess.
