I have a problem deleting my text messages since yesterday. When i click Edit and i press on the red button, the Delete button appeared only for a second and then it wont stay. I have tried reboot my iphone but still cant.
Beside that, why my battery drains so fast even after i just charge it?

thanks

    Edit a conversation: Tap Edit. Tap the circles along the left side to select the parts of the conversation you want to delete, then tap Delete. When you’re finished, tap Done.

    Delete a conversation: Tap Edit, then tap next to the conversation and tap Delete. You can also swipe left or right over the conversation and tap Delete.

    Thank you for this absolutely basic answer.. but I'm not an idiot. I am trying to delete (as described in the original post) but it will not allow me to. Also, the battery is running down much faster than normal.
    Please only comment again if you have useful information.

    Are you sure? I was responding not to you but to the original poster (note the positioning of these boxes), who implied that he/she was missing a step in the procedure: as they posted "When i click Edit and i press on the red button"

    Text Problem- Error Message Reads "Message Send Failure." I am unable to Edit, Delete,Forward or 'access' this particular text account in any way. As of today, my other text accounts are behaving in unusual manner. I have been searching for answers, to no avail. This is an iPhone4, aprrox 6 weeks old. I have been texting for roughly 9 years and never have run into this. Any advice, at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Dera all,
    i also have the issue
    I assume it is an app that runs in the background and therefore also killes the battery and the device gets warm
    I got my iPhone replaced and not the same! so I assume it has to be one
    Do we have a chance to see what process is running in the back?
    does Apple have an idea (seems not)

    thanks!!!

    Dear all,

    I again have this problem!
    I deleted everything from the phone and set it up from scratch

    then it worked for 2-3 months and now the same again..

     

    you have some ideas?
