I accidentally copied a few useless texts to my SIM card. How do I delete them from the SIM card? I tried going into SIM Management via Contacts to no avail.

Thanks, in advance!

Thanks so much! This is my first smartphone, so I appreciate the fact even the most elementary questions (read: my dumb question) are answered.

I had a message popping up saying "SIM card full, delete messages". I would click on this message, and it would open the standard messaging app called: Messaging. I kept going through and deleting all my SIM messages (unknowingly using the Messaging app at this time) and then it would automatically refresh, only to show me all the exact same SIM messages, not deleted.

Textra was set as my default messaging app.

To resolve this issue and finally delete all my SIM messages, I had to activate the de-activated Messaging app, click on settings->manage SIM messages->select all the messages and delete them. This finally refreshed to show no more SIM messages. I then re-activated Textra and everything was back to normal.

    While in messaging, Press Menu button>Settings then select Manage SIM Card Messages
