    We need to scroll down until we see 'STORAGE SETTINGS' in bold black text.
    Underneath of that, the first option is 'Delete old messages. Delete old messages as limits are reached'. I'm sure we've all been through the process of having to delete all of our messages if we haven't done it for a few months. Using this option, it allows us to set a limit of when the SMS or MMS messages will start to be deleted.

    Tap on the 'Text message limit' text to change the limit.
    The limit for text messages is currently set to 200 messages per conversation. Therefore, after 200 messages, the oldest messages will start to be deleted. Every time we receive or send a message, it will delete an old message.
