    Not to beat a dead horse since you seem to have your mind pretty well set on this, but I'd like to point out the fact that every single messaging app on Android allows you to quickly and easily delete entire conversations.

    I'd also like to point out that deleting conversations on MightyText doesn't delete them on the phone, so it's not as though you're actually losing any real data.

    Catering to someone like lianne (below) is catering to someone on the fringe. Most people don't have to go 3 hours without their phone, let alone 3 months. And in lianne's case, there are better solutions for SMS backup (e.g. SMS Backup+).

    I guess it's just a matter of knowing your user. Most of us are the types of people sitting at a computer all day, which is why MightyText is convenient to use. This implies a certain level of technical knowledge. I think we're intelligent enough to decide if "Delete All Without Confirmation" is the right choice for ourselves.

    I don't want another SMS Backup app. I want the convenience of SMS/MMS on my computer so I'm not constantly handling my phone. That's what brought most of us to MightyText to begin with.

    I'd even go a step further and say I don't really want you storing my messages on your servers - and I'm not even a privacy nut!

    My suggestion: put it to the users. You've posted polls for other things, so why not this? Get some actual feedback instead of projecting your users are going to want to use MightyText for a different reason than why they originally downloaded and installed it. After all, "we think lots of our users will store hundreds (or 1000’s) of text messages per thread" is really nothing more than hyperbole without the research, isn't it?

    Then perhaps make it a selectable option or user preference? It's rather hard to accidentally click on the "Delete" box. I'm also of the mind that the fewer clicks I need, the better.
