Deleing Messages

You need to go to your inbox, then press the menu, scroll down on the menu and there will be an option saying mark/unmark. click on this and there will be check boxes next to each message. Press the check box in the top left hand corner and it will select all of the messages. then press delete and it will delete all the messages in your inbox. Once you've done this you can do the same for your sent box. Hope this helps

I have a HTC touch diamond. I have it set to "delete messages off server", but it doesn't do it. the messages keep reloading on my phone.

Make sure you Send/Recieve, which will 'sync' or delete those messages with the server at the same time. If you don't it will simply only delete from your phones inbox, until the next time you sync

Friends, this I got from allaboutsymbian website. And I already try the Test1 and it works!!!
Hope this could be much of help......

I had the exact same problem and have solved it by updating the firmware and reloading my settings from at saved bile, but it is rather time consuming.

The solution by deleting all the messages in the inbox worked perfectly fine smile.gif
Though nothing haapend when i only deleted the outbox and sent.

I assume that the problem is caused by the message server (the small program handleing you enter to send and read messages)

I descuvered that when my phone was put into offline mode, and re-entering to normal mode , I could not open the message server.
After deleting all messages this problem has been resolved aswell.

Maybe the message server is having problem handleing to many messages.
The amount of space left on my phone was not a problem eather, arround 30 M and the insert card was empty.
but i had over 1300 messages in my inb ox when the problem started occuring.

If any ojne else is experiencing this problem, pleace keep on debugging and tributed with more result.
This will make it easyer to conclude on the results and finally determine why it is happening, based on when.

Test1 : (Is the issue resolved only when inbox being emptyed)
Here is what you do :
1. Delete all you messages - 1 in your inbox,
2. Restart the phone,
3. Send an sms to yourself.
4. Write a reply on this threat weather youi got the message or not.

if it is not resolved. please continue with 2. test

Test2 : (Is this allways resolved by emptying the indbox)
1. Delete ALL you messages in the inbox
2. Restart the phone,
3. Send an sms to yourself.
4. Write a reply on this threat weather youi got the message or not.

If the problem is stille not resolved then you have to reset the phone.

Test 3.
First of all, you must save all you phone settings, phonebook sms(despite you just deleted them all, save it anyways!) phone settings. etc.
and then reset it.

1. Save all files
2 Reset you phone by typing in *#7370#.
3. Restart the phone,
4. Send an sms to yourself.
5. Write a reply on this threat weather youi got the message or not.

If this works, then restore one of the save configurations at a time and test weather it still works.

Delete all messages

Go to your inbox, click the options button (a white square with three parallel gray lines) as usual. Do not select "Delete" but "Mark/Unmark". Check the box on the top left hand corner and your phone will select all but the first message (you can avoid this by first unchecking the first message or checking the first message separately with a second touch) then touch "Delete at the bottom center of the screen". Your messages in that folder are deleted permanently.

Deleting text messages

To delete a letter, position the cursor just to the right of the unwanted letter and press the C-shaped "back" key in the centre bottom, between green and red phone buttons

Deleting text messages

Should also just be able to select Menu->Folders, get on the folder you want cleared, click Menu->Delete All. If you don't have items in that folder you will see Delete All but you won't be able to select it.

Cannot delete messages from inbox

It also happened to me and my friend's cellphone. I suspected a virus from a text message we received. You have to reformat your phone as suggested by iroarload: 1. switch phone off, probably take out the battery if the power button doesn't work. 2. hold down call (green), 3 and * all at the same time. best with right hand. 3. turn phone on. with left hand. 4. wait a bit and phone will come up with formatting. does take a bit, so be patient.
