    I have read the directions and this sometimes works. However, most of the time the trashcan never appears at the bottom of the screen. Still have the normal camera, space to type a message, and send button. I seem to have to power the phone off/on before I get the trashcan back

    I can only assume you have a corrupt setting or corrupt iOS download. Having said that, iOS 8.2 is believed to be released today, and if so, I recommend that you do a clean install of it, and then set up the device as new, and not from a backup. Afterwards, test to make sure any text messages you receive can be deleted individually without you having to reboot to display the trash bin.

    I don't delete individual texts very much, but I did run into this problem the other day. I simply just closed the Messages app, reopened it, and the trash can appeared. Never had to power off the phone.

    You are correct that if you force the Message application to close (not just go in background), it works correctly when you restart it
