Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to delete more than one message at a time on email, SMS, etc...? Tried to no avail!

yes, if you hold shift and scroll it will select multiple messages that are next to one another.

Highlight a date and then hit menu key and select delete prior.

Or hold down alt & roll trackball to highlight emails, hit menu key and select delete.

If you want to delete ALL messages prior to a certain date, highlight the date separater between the days, press the Menu button and click Delete Prior. Will delete everything prior to that day.

If you only want to delete, say, SMS, then do a search first to find all SMS (like holding down ALT-S), scroll to the top (or previous date separator or whatever) and then Menu -> Delete Prior. Then press the Escape key (aka 'swirly arrow' button) and you'll see the rest of your emails/phone calls again.
