Problem: Â Before upgrading my iPhone to IOS7, I was able to select portions of a text conversation and delete them by touching the “Edit” option on my screen. Â Now that is gone. Â So what can I do to be able to remove parts of the conversation.
Solution: Â After poking around a bit, what you can do is touch and hold a bubble that is part of the conversation. Â After a couple of seconds, a menu will pop up saying “Copy” and “More.” Â Choose “More” and you then come to that all familiar edit screen where you can select and delete or delete all. Â There is also a right pointing arrow that will let you forward that selection to another person.
* In my plugging around, I also realized you can see the time stamp of each entry by dragging the screen to the left. Â There you will see a time stamp for each entry in the conversation. Â You don’t have to select a specific bubble.
