Re: txt messages takes ages to delete

Go to your Apps drawer (not settings) and open the app called "Backup & restore", select "Manual backup", check "Conversations" and tap BACKUP.

It should not delete them, but you can always take a back up with "Back up @& restore" app in your Xperia. Will take a few seconds-minutes to back your messages up.
