    LOL. That feature has been there since Windows Phone 7.

    BTW. That works on other 3rd party apps like SkyDrive too.

    A few places have the check box function. Example, in the picture hub, go into an album, at the bottom will be a check box icon. Tap it and all the pictures in the album will have a border. Just tap on the ones you want and a check will appear in the corner of the thumbnail. Then you can share, save to SkyDrive or delete the item selected.

    It's also there in Messaging.

    Oh, good you discovered it. That feature been around a while now. I was hoping for a button to select an entire group to delete. But not here yet. Which is the neat thing about this phone. Its has a lot of hidden gems.

    I stumbled onto it by accident early on but sometimes still forget it's there. It's very convenient.

    Is there anyway to delete all photos in picture hub? After selecting "select mode" I can see the "select all" option, but it's always grey out.

    Weird but it looks like if there are both videos and pictures in the folder the select all feature doesn't work. Must not be able to select multiple videos.

    Its not your fail. WP has to have tutorials for those things.

    The check boxes thing might seem obvious to experienced users, but for us newcomers we'd never know about these things if it wasn't for threads like this.

    It's a bit like the "long-press a highlighted word to get the text cursor to appear" tip... very useful to know, but you could use the phone for years and never know about if you didn't read it!

    Opening the recent call list and pressing the phone icon rather than the name will redial that number, not open the contact's full information.

    In a similar manner to the emails, pressing the left of a messaging thread lets you multi-delete them by checking.

    This is a similarly useful thread: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...wbie-tips.html

    Sad thing is, I suspect a lot of people give up on WP8 before learning about these kinds of things.

    It vanishes too fast anyway. I'd like to have an option to keep it there until I swipe it to the right.

    I'm pretty sure every phone comes with a manual in which these things are explained. It's just that nobody bothers to read it.
