31It is well known that a new generation mobile phone which uses Android can be used for a large variety of purposes such as messaging through email, social networks or other kind of messaging. Also, you can receive SMS from banks or other spam messages that are stored into your phone. All these messages grow the size of your inbox day by day and this can be a cause of a bad functioning of your device.

Your inbox, outbox, sent or draft messages can make your phone function from bad to worse if you don’t take care of this matter. You can solve this problem very easy by setting your phone to have a limited number of messages stored. Android has the right answer for this kind of problem. The system can delete your old messages if you set it to do this, and you will not have concerns anymore about your storage space or bad functioning of your phone.

This operation is very simple if you follow some easy steps. Follow the instructions bellow:

– First, you will need to launch the messaging application of your phone

– Then, you will click on the menu and tap Settings button

– Tap on “Delete old messages” and you will have the settings checked.

A very good way to maintain your phone clean is to set the message storage limits. The option will be found below “Delete older messages”. By tapping “Text message limit”, you will set it to the needed value. The default is set to 200 but you can change it the way you want. After reaching the number of messages that you set, the Android will delete the old messages and will keep your memory safe.
