Default Delete ALL messages?

Please Login to Remove!

New to the Pearl...LOVE it...having so much fun..but a few things seem hard to find (though eventually I will). One thing I can't find out is how to (when in the messages section) delete ALL messages rather than just one at a time. Anyone know if you can do this?

thanks!

Hit T to go to the top of the messages list (might not work on a Pearl - works on full QWERTY devices), then click the menu button (wheel) and select Delete Prior from the menu.

You can do this - or Mark Prior Read - from any date break, which (again on a QWERTY keyboard) you can get to by hitting P.

Once you are in "Messages" hit 1 key (ER key). This will take you to the top of the messages. Hit 'Menu' button and select 'Delete Prior' to remove all messages.

Probably, because some user would hit DELETE ALL, and then the most often asked question at tech support (and this board) would be how to UNDELETE ALL.
