In the message settings, turn on the trash to hold your trash for 30 days before deleting.

It's on, but I still have to delete each individual message manually. There use to be a setting that the user to denote if they wanted X amount of messages automatically deleted.

The option to delete old messages is gone. Thats why I asked if Samsung got rid of it. So frustrating!
