If you are also a heavy user of SMS and you are a owner of Microsoft's Windows based Smartphone 2002 you might also miss the feature to delete all messages from the Inbox with just one click. Well, to be honest - for me it seems a little bit like Microsoft simply forgot to add this feature since "delete all" is included in the recycle bin folder.
Thanks to the 3GSM Congress I met James Pratt from DAT Group who showed me their latest development: SMS Tools.
SMS Tools is a simple but great application which lets you select which messages from which folder should be deleted.
Just open SMS Tools and you will get an overview of how many messages are stored in your Inbox (incl. an overview of how many unread) and how many messages are stored in Sent Items.
Now you can select which messages of which folder you want to delete. Here you can select Inbox, Sent Items or both.
By clicking to Action, SMS Tools lets you select if you want to Delete Read SMS only or if you want to Delete All SMS messages.
After confirming this action your folder is empty. No more hassle to do it message by message.
SMS Tools is such a great and simple application which really helps to get more out of your Smartphone! Specially because the storage capacity on a Smartphone is more limited then on a Pocket PC it makes pretty much sense to delete old SMS messages from time to time. On my 10 hours flight to Redmond two weeks ago, I did it message by message (and I had around 130 -160 SMS messages in my Inbox) which took some time. While it was okay anyway to do it during the flight - I had nothing else to do - it is more then annoying to do this during a regular business day!
SMS Tools is available for free from DAT Groups Smartphone Club site and is highly recommended for every messaging geek out there who use its Smartphone 2002 for SMS too.
To register SMS Tools you have to register on Smartphone Club which is worth at all since they offer some more software in addition to SMS Tools anyhow as well as some cool services like a Home screen configurator!
