Default Deleting multiple emails

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to delete multiple emails from my 8310 besides selecting, click on the menu key and go to "Delete" (or opening the email and then deleting for each email? Today I had many junk emails I did not want to open...just delete. It is quite tedius with so many steps.

You can press T to go to the top, press the menu key and select delete prior. Or you could highlight any date and do the same thing.

You could also highlight a message, press and hold the shit key and then scroll. That will select multiple messages at once.

I think the fastest and easiest way to delete a message(s) has been to highlight the message then hit the DEL key. Hold it down and watch it work.

I think this is the quickest way.

Press T, menu key, delete prior. Takes all of 2 seconds.

In general, the less you rely on the menus the faster you'll be on the BB. I highly recommend looking for Stinsonddog's tips sheets as they cover a lot of the shortcuts.
