Open Messages, hold shift (lower left) and push S (for sms). They all appear for you to delete. Or open Messages, hut menu (left of trackball) and View Folders. The SMS sent and received are separate.

You can also highlight the current day (or any day), press the application button and select Delete Prior.

You can hold down the pound key and scroll the track wheel up or down and delete them all at once.
