    Just delete your messages…?

    iOS8 lets you automatically delete messages after a year or 30 days.

    That issue first came to light in iOS 6.. It hasn't been addressed this far and I highly doubt it will. You can restore your phone as new or use the iBackUpBot method (Google it or search Macrumors for it). Both will get your space back right away.

    The reason why the issue exists is because when you had iOS 6 installed and deleted threads, it didn't delete the attachments (Photos and videos). Those got stuck in the background and the two ways mentioned above are the only two ways to clear it.
