    Hi folks, I have my messages synced across all of my iDevices which is great accept that Messages takes up a large chunk of storage space on my low storage capacity iPad.

    Does the Keep Messages option under Settings/Messages/Keep Messages affect messages on all of my decices, or only the device that I change that setting on?

    I want to be able to have older messages removed from my iPad (to free up space) while retaining them on my iPhone.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Unless you changing the option on one device somehow changes it on the other ones then it should only apply to the particular device you changed it on.
