    Hi guys
    i found a very nice feature, that i think is not well known.

    When you want to delete a message (mail or SMS) you have point to the edit button and then mark it to delete the conversation or mail. With this feature wich i found you can fast and easy delete one mail or conversation.

    What you have to to?
    Slide on the message overview on the message wich you want to delete from right to left or otherwise. Then comes a delete button.

    A nice feature i think

    That was the way to delete things on email etc before the edit function was even introduced.

    It is an incredibly well known feature, I'm afraid to say!!

    Yup, sorry - I've known about it since I got my touch a year ago.

    They actually demoed this feature on the first iPhone video that Apple put out.

    Yeah, it was also in the finger tips guide that came with the phone, I think. It's a well, well, well known feature buddy, I'm sorry

    I'd say it's one of the best known features.
