    Is there any cydia program where I can select more than one (or all) text conversations at once to delete?

    There's probably not a Cydia program for that because your iPhone can already do that. Go to your messages, hit Edit, touch all the ones you want gone and then hit Delete.

    are you serious? it's built into iOS

    just go into selection mode within messages. then choose the ones you want to delete, its pretty self explanatory.

    I hit edit, but I can only delete one at a time...I hit the little red dot with the horizontal white line then the delete button shows up, but there is no way to do this to more than one at a time....any time I try to select another text, the delete button goes away

    Im on 4.1 if that makes a difference...but I play with it and I see no way to select more than one text

    Are you talking about deleting multiple entire conversations? or multiple texts within a conversation?

    The time it took you to get answers you would have already been done if you did it by hand.

    i think he meant deleting whole conversations as against text within conversations.. and i dnt think there is a way to delete multiple conversations at the same time..i have tried to do it myself lot of times...

    Yeah, I mean conversations then...I just considered each conversation one text since they are stored as one...sort of like an email and its replies...

    Thats dumb that you can actually delete multiple text "messages" with in the conversation but not multiple conversations...it seems rather backwards if you ask me

    totally backwards, im nor sure why anyone would want to only delete parts of the conversation
