10K sent SMS saved on 700wx: how to delete them quickly?

It's taking FOREVER to delete these from the Sent folder, is there a quicker way? There are no important texts I want to save. Is there not a file I can simply delete via File Explorer?

And yes I just now disabled saving sent texts. Thanx.

All text is stored in a single file, so if you want to blow away ALL text, received and sent, that would be easy.

 

In the 800w, you can use Menu > Purge for the folder you are viewing to cull by date. Do you have that on your 700?

The 700wx does not have a purge option. However I finally did it while at work. At the start it was taking 5 seconds do delete a message, towards the end it was a message a second.

The key was making sure the phone was always on external power, and under the Power >> Advanced section, make sure "Turn off device if not used for" was UNCHECKED. Of course I had the backlight dim quickly, but the important part was making sure the phone didn't turn off automatically.
