On the Textfree app

There are two ways to delete messages.  On the main screen, you can delete entire recent conversations.  Just swipe the conversation to the right.  A "delete" button should pop-up; clicking this button will allow you to delete or block the user. 

You can also delete specific messages.  When in a conversation, you can tap and hold a specific message.  A button will pop-up, with options to "copy," "forward," or "delete" a message. 

If this doesn't work for your Facebook conversations, you may need to reinstall your app.  For a completely clean install (this will wipe your older messages!): 

  • Delete the app,
  • RESTART your device, and then
  • Reinstall the app (reinstalling without restarting may not wipe away all old data).
