Hi there.
Factory reset will delete everything (not in all cases though) back all your numbers up to the sim card, back photo's and games up to the memory card (if you have one) and restore the phone to factory.
As for any messages forget them.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

How to delete multiple text messages on a Samsung Intensity


On many mobile phones, you only have two options for deleting text messages: deleting one message at a time, or deleting a whole folder at a time. However, the Samsung Intensity (among other phones) gives you the option to delete multiple text messages at once without deleting an entire folder. You just have to know how to do it.

Go into the Messaging menu, either by pressing the upper left option button or by going into the main menu and selecting Messaging (option #2). Select your inbox, then press the upper right option button (Options). Select #9, Msgs View by Contact. The text messages in your inbox are now grouped according to who sent them.

From this view, you can delete multiple text messages at once. Press the upper right option button again and select choice #2, Erase Multiple. Now as your messages are displayed, there is an empty box next to each one. Scroll down through the list and select the messages you want to delete by pressing the center of the directional pad. A check will appear next to that message. To uncheck a message, repeat the same process.

The only messages you won't be able to delete are messages that you've previously marked as locked. If you want to delete a locked message, you'll have to unlock it first, then delete it.

Once you've put a check next to all of the messages that you want to delete, click the upper left option button (Done) and you'll see a confirmation message. Choose whether you want to delete all of the checked messages or only the unread ones, and then click the directional button (OK). The messages you selected will be deleted.

To resume having your messages displayed in chronological order, click the upper right option button and choose option #4, Msgs View by Time.

You are doing right. start Messaging -> Sent Box. Select the msgs that you do not want and from Options select Delete. Thats all you have to do . Or if you dont like any of the msgs, Select all and Delete All.

G1 Text Message Deleting Problems.


The same thing happened to me, I had a thread of texts that exceeded 1000+, I tried to delete and it would always force close.
It just so happens that you have to completely reset your phone, that means putting it into the state that it was in when it came out of the box.

You can do this by..
Step 1: Taking out the battery
Step 2: Hold the home key, end key and menu key all at once untill you see a new symbol on the screen.
Step 3: Press alt + w

Congrats, you just nuked everything off your phone.

(And yes this is the only way, I consulted two T-Mobile stores.)

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.

Cant delete the thread on the g1


ya....its a known issue that should be resolved when cupcake software is released.....

you WILL encounter this force close error message everytime to attepmt to delete messages if you have over 100 messages in the inbox....

just select menu > delete threads and select the force close error when it pops up. you should be okay.....just keep doing that till cupcake is out. if that doesnt help, youll need to have the phone reset. try going to MENU > SETTINGS > SD CARD AND PHONE STORAGE > RESET PHONE > ERASE EVERYTHING.

**as long as you remember you gmail username and password, all of your contacts and calander apps will be restored on the handheld. if you do not remember them, you will loose EVERYTHING if you complete this reset.**

good luck :)

Deleting Texts Messages


try to delete all threads at once by going to menu then delete threads.....after the force close error messages, you should be okay. i know it wont allow you to delete thema t once...so try all at the same time.

just heads up, this is a known issue and should be resolved once the cupcake software reslease is out....until then, keep your inbox UNDER 100 text messages and it will help prevent this from happening until that update comes out.

worse case scenario. if you do have to reset the phone, all your contacts and calender info will automatically be synced with phone given you remember the username and password for your google account. good luck! :)
