    Default Delete all Text Messages from your iPhone at once, now you can.
    This little tidbit is for those of us whom are tired of it taking two taps (or a swipe and a tap) on each of our messages to delete, when we just want to nuke every message in there. It's actually quite simplistic, so if you're one of those who need this functionality you can grab it from this url:

    Thanks for this mrplastik, why don't you upload it to MMi in the Downloads section at the top of the page

    When you do that, if you don't rebuild the structure all following text messages will not propagate. (A reboot, or killall CommCenter will re-create the db properly.)

    This is to save people from having to do such steps many times over (myself for example must nuke all messages a good 5 or 10 times a day) not to mention, a single button on your UI is far superior (faster) to ssh'ing in.
