There are two main things you can do with your iPhone:
I’ll cover both options in this post. Note: I am assuming that you own an older version of the iPhone – i.e., like an iPhone 3GS, 4, 5, 6, 7 line). If you own a newer model (iPhone 6S, 7), then your problems are likely gone forever because your phone has iOS 8, and these problems have been addressed. So no worries if you’re in this group! Also note: Deleting all texts is one way to delete them – but it only solves some things. As a result, some people think they’ve gone ahead and deactivated their phones…only to find out later that they still have tons of texts on their devices (for example, by continuing to use their iCloud backup settings). And yes…there is something called ‘unlocking’ your device [and removing iCloud], which lets you wipe out all settings/files/data from an activated device…but there is no way to completely erase your data (that’s why organizations like Mint keep backup files!).

Apple iPhone deletes all text messages.
If you’re looking to delete all text messages on your iPhone, there are a few ways.
Where to start?
To begin, you’ll want to download the app. There are several ways of doing this:
What to do?
To delete all your old text messages, you will need to import them into the Messages app. To do this:
What to look for?
When someone is asking you to delete all text messages, they’re probably not being serious. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and assume that everyone else is too. But take a second to think about what they’re saying before responding:
How to pay? How much is too much?
How much is too much?
It depends on the number of messages you have. If you have a lot of notes, you can pay for the whole year at once or monthly. You can also pay per message if it’s just one or two people complaining about their phone bills and nothing else.
The easiest way is to export your old messages and then delete them.
The easiest way is to export your old messages and then delete them. This can be done by going into Settings, scrolling down, tapping on “Messages,” and selecting “Message content.” After that, you’ll be able to export the conversation as a .zip file and delete it from there. You’ll also want to ensure that if you ever want any of your old messages back (and who wouldn’t?), you always have an archive backup somewhere safe!
The next step would be importing those conversations back into Messages again once they’ve been deleted—but with all their attachments intact so that everything shows up just like it did before: no typos or spelling errors! This process works for both iMessage and WhatsApp messaging apps; don’t forget those pesky emoticons!
You should remove text messages from your iPhone and Mac for several reasons. You may be replying to a letter sent to you in error, or you’ve already read through the conversation and don’t want any part remaining after deleting it, or you’re sharing sensitive information with someone for the first time. Still, when a third party receives your message, you’d like them to have access to just a tiny section of the conversation.
It’s essential that if you’re thinking about clearing out your phone’s contents, there is some legitimate reason behind it. Messages saved on your iPhone can contain all sorts of personal details, including passwords and other sensitive information. If you find yourself doing this often, the problem is more severe than simply wanting to get rid of old text messages. For example:
You are trying to delete an old message on behalf of someone else (in which case, think carefully about whether the action is sensible).
You have set up a new iPhone on a different account (then again, maybe not…). This would mean all old messages would be deleted by default regardless of the device used. Often when setting up new accounts, this can result in all news from the previous version being wiped out as they’ll no longer exist either at iCloud or in iTunes on another device; this is an issue as you can’t retrieve any previous conversations/conversations without having visited all past messages before deleting them. For example:
The question I’m asking here is, “is it essential?” Many other options could be available without saving everything into Dropbox and then deleting everything remotely!
