I just noticed I have 2.4GB of messages from forever ago. I can't figure out an easy way to delete old ones. Is there a way to have old ones deleted or do I need to go through it manually? thanks

You must manually delete your old messages.

There is a rumor that iOS 8 will include an option to auto-delete old messages after a certain period of time.

I'm going in the opposite direction of this thread, but is there a way to save messages in an easy-to-read format?
