Default can't delete stored messages.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everybody . I have a problem . I have just been offered a Blackberry 8700f (which had been used by my brother for a long time) . The problem is that I can't manage to delete the (so many) messages that are stored in it .
Thank you for your help .

P.S The messages I receive now are easy to delete (by following the usual steps).

mokright, I've been waiting to see replies. Don't know answer. But when you delete a message, what happens? Just nothing, or what? Have you done a hard reset (pulled battery)?

I had this happen to me before, I just wiped the device. Saves time and the headache with trying to figure out other methods.

I am thinking that this device may have been on a BES and was at some point a new EA was performed. I think I have read before that a change on BES and with Outlook, like username has orphaned messages and they could not be removed.

Default Delete the old messages by using Desktop Software V4.3

Plug In your blackberry via USB

Go into your desktop software 4.3 (Latest Version at the time of post)

Select > Backup and restore

Select > Advanced

The device should sync.

Scroll down to messages you can then clear the list from there.

PS you may want to take a back up before hand!

Hope this helps.
