Can you add the ability to edit posts?  Sometimes it would be nice to go back and edit what I posted for clarity or correcting something.  There is no way to do it.

There is a five-minute window after a post is left during which edits can be made.

Ok, thanks. Wasnt aware of that. Every time i wanted to edit, it mustve been after 5 minute period.  There should be an option to add to it ..after that small 5 min. window.  I just use the reply button for that.

Any longer than five minutes, then the poster could completely changed the context of the post and could change the meaning of the entire discussion. Even worse, would be the ability to delete the post and therefore delete every single reply to the deleted post.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Makes sense.  It could save original post and let you add underneath it in the same box and show the date you make those adds. Since that is not available, we can just use the reply button and add/update that way.

Also, i noticed that there is no 5 minute time to edit for replies. Once you submit those, they are there and cant be edited even seconds afterwards.

You can edit from the Actions dropdown in the full page view, but not from the Inbox view.  If you are viewing messages in Inbox, click the title, which is a link, and it will open into a full page view.

Also, edits are only available in desktop mode (not the mobile version of the forum).
