    So my text messages aren't deleting it's annoying I have 2gb worth of texts when I delete a whole bunch and try to open a text it freezes, as I get closer to deleting them all it starts lagging and when I try to delete the message stats high lighted! Any ideas?

    What phone and what OS are you on? if IOS 7 why can't you hit edit and hit the minus sign and when you see delete hit delete. I have no trouble with mine. You seem to have an awful lot of troubles with your phone. Just sayin.

    I'm not really sure what you mean. You can't manually delete them? I don't think I ever delete them unless it's a sports score that angers me.

    Just give it time to delete your messages. Alternatively, you can double tap on the home button and clear out the list of recently used apps to see if that helps.

    No you cannot delete all of your text messages all at once but like I said if you hit edit and just hit the minus sign and then delete and just keep going down the list, That is the only way.

    Then you may want to restore your phone as a new device.

    You can add your other stuff back. This would be last resort. Have you done a hard reset?

    I'm having the same problem. Absolutely no other issues with my phone. I have the 64BG 5s btw, and my software is up to date. I've tried the hard reset and everything. I would hate to have to restore my phone just because my messages won't delete.
