Has anyone figured out how to delete specific text messages?

I tend to save some text messages from people and delete others. It seems that my only option is to delete the entire thread. Has anyone figured out another option?

You should be able to select any thread or individual message. Long press on it and a sub-menu will come up giving you the option to "delete this message" or thread if youve selected the entire thread.

Alternatively, if there are fewer messages you'd like to keep, you can long press on those and select Lock. Then in the All Messages view, you can long press on the entire thread and pres Delete. The following screen will ask you if you want to include locked messages in the action, leaving this unchecked will delete only the messages in the thread you have not locked.
