How do you delete all messages on lg 500g

Mark/Unmark LG 500g messages Mark all LG 500g messages for deletion

How do you delete all messages on lg 500g instead of one at a time?

-----------
Hi,

This questions comes up every now and then with LG phones because you need to scroll down to see the menu option.

Go to Menu -> Messages -> Inbox and select Options. Then scroll down until you get to Mark/Unmark and select it, then select Mark All. That will select all the messages. You can then delete all or individually unmark any you want to save and then delete all your unwanted messages.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Instructions are for text messages
by: sb

Hi Mike,

These instructions are for deleting text messages not voicemails. The instructions for doing that do mention that you have to scroll down to see the mark/unmark option.

To delete voicemails, you have to check your voicemail and and use the voice prompts to navigate around the voicemail menu.

I felt sure that there had to be a way to delete all messages, but could not figure it out. My wife suggested that I Google my problem, and presto, there you were! Thank you, thank you!

Man I was sick of this...
by: Mad 44 yr old man

The book did not show how to delete the text msgs so I was deleting them one by one. I was telling peple not to text because I had a crappy $30 phone from Net10 and had to delete each text one by one.
I was back on the delete text one by one again until I did a Google search and found this site. Well thank God for you putting the answers on here. My fingers will no longer hurt and I can have about 20 minutes back to my life.
Thank you for posting this!!

Thank you. Had another LG before this and it was simpler, just delete all with the delete button. This is the correct solution for the lg500g.

Good solution, thank you for answer
by: Anonymous

Yes, thank you for explaining this. It should be much more straight forward to delete all messages, you shouldn't have to scroll down through menu items and select everything before you can delete it. It doesn't seem logical when compared to other phone interfaces...

DELETE ALL LG500G
by: Anonymous

If there are no messages in your inbox, outbox etc. you won't see the mark/unmark option. There has to be be something there to delete before that option is available.

@Anonymous: click on whatever file you want to clean out ( inbox, outbox, etc ). Click OPTIONS. Go allll the way to the bottom of the OPTIONS menu and you should see Mark/Unmark with an arrow pointing to the right indicatin g a dropdown menu. Go to the dropdown and select MARK ALL. Then OPTIONS and DELETE. This will delete all of the messages. You'll get a pop-up asking if you want to delete ( number ) messages before they are deleted.
