How to Quickly Delete Messages on a BlackBerry


There are many tips and tricks on a BlackBerry smartphone that can save you time and frustration. One such trick is erasing a large number of text and email messages with the push of one button. This method is much quicker and more practical than erasing them one by one, and can be used daily or weekly to free up some additional memory on your phone.

  • Find the "Messages" icon on your phone (it looks like an envelope). You may need to first press the BlackBerry "Menu" button depending on your set up.

  • Decide which text messages and/or emails you want to delete. Make this decision based on the day and date, so that you know you are erasing the text messages before that date. For example, you might want to erase all messages that came in before today. In this case, you would be deleting all text or emails except the ones that your cell phone received today.

  • Use the BlackBerry trackball and scroll to the specific date that you would like to erase the prior text and email messages.

  • Highlight the day and date and press the BlackBerry trackball in to display the menu options.

  • Select the "Delete Prior" option. You will then see "Delete all prior items?" which you need to confirm by selecting "Delete." You have now successfully deleted and cleared all the text messages and emails on your BlackBerry cell phone that came before that date.
