    Default Re: IOS 7 Syncing: Documents and Data

    Never mind..... i found out how...Edit button top left and delete.

    Is there a way to delete multiple iMessages at the same on the phone or in iTunes? It takes forever to delete each message one by one. And after I delete the messages sent it still shows the header of who it as sent to. Is there a way to delete that as well?

    I am having the same issue. Before the IOS 7 update, it showed 6+ GB in my "other" folder. I took my IPhone to the Apple store and after spending about 30 min digging through my phone, the guy told me the only solution was to completely wipe out my phone and start over. So I've been living with 6 completely worthless GB on my phone. After the IOS 7 update, my "other" folder changed to 1.1 GB and there appeared "Documents and Data" as 5.5 GB. After doing a little research I figured out in General Settings-Usage-Messages, my Messages App is taking up 4.5 GB. The unusual thing is I had deleted the majority of my texts, only leaving a few threads with no pics, videos etc. So how could that possibly take up 4.5 GB of space?? But then when I click on Messages it says "Messages (Saved)" 4.5 GB. Here is our problem I think guys. I did some research online and found that when we "delete" threads of texts from our Message app, some of the threads remain somewhere in our phones, although deleted from our Message app. I can't figure out how to get to those old deleted texts to remove them from my phone. Another thread said use iBackupBot, so I paid the $34.95 for it. Tried to do it and I'm getting all kinds of useless error codes. Any ideas from anyone?

    Out of curiosity, how far back do your text messages go? In the main window where you see multiple messages, tap the top and it'll go back to the oldest. Mine go back to 2008 (~7GB). Would be cool if I could push these out to a calendar format that would read like a pseudo journal.

    I went into my individual text message threads & at the very top I found the option to load previous messages. When I did that I found a bunch of stuff I had no idea was still on my phone. When I touched & held one individual bubble I was given the options Copy or More. When I selected More I found I could select individual items to delete. I cleared a bunch of stuff out & now my Saved Messages under Settings - General - Usage is only 1.2 MB & I can live with that. Don't know if this helps someone but I hope so.
