Firstly I have to say WOW, your fingers must be tired, it is a good job this phone has a keyboard.
If you go to Android Market on your phone and search for and download an application named "ChompSMS".
This is an SMS application which can be used alongside or instead of the defaut SMS application on the phone.
Once it is installed, open it up and you will see that it shows all your message threads in a slightly different interface (looks a lot like iPhones sms UI)
You will have to scroll to the top of your massive SMS thread once but when you delete a message it will stay in the same position rather than go back to the latest message. This should make deleting a lot of the earlier messages in the thread easier.
Once you are done you can remove the application. This will not effect the messages in any way since the application is just a front end for the SMS' on your telephone.

How do i delete texts from my htc hero with large conversations


When you go into your MMS app, you will be presented with a list of people you have texted and the number of texts with that thread (conversation). Long hold on the thread you want to delete and you will get a dialog box. One of those options is Delete, and then another dialog box that will ask you if want to delete the entire thread. Hit ok, but keep in mind that if it's a long thread, it may take a couple of minutes to delete. Please be patient with this.

Good luck.

How do I delete my quick text entries


Go to menu
Then Messaging
You should see setting on the bottom of the screen, go there.
Then go to All Messages
Then go to Quick Text
Once inside there you should see the option to erase any and all quick text. Also, you should see where you can add new or your own quick text.

At least that's how it is on a few of our phones.

Otherwise, get to Quick Text anyway you can, and see if you can delete it once inside there.

G1 isnt deleting text messages


This problem had been bugging me for over a month now so I decided to just try and wait it out. First I deleted all the threads individually that the phone would allow me to so that just left me with 3 big threads, one that had 1300 messages and 2 that had about 650 each. I went into each thread and hit delete and when the "force close or wait" message popped up I hit "wait". Then it came up again about 5 minutes later so I hit "wait" again. I kept hitting "wait" each time and the thread eventually deleted. The ones with 650 took about 10 minutes of waiting to finally get deleted, the one with 1300 took about 20 mins but eventually they were all gone and now my phone is running much more smoothly. So just wait it out. Its annoying but worth it in the end.
