It sounds like you need to reconsider how you're using databases. You really 
shouldn't have to delete large amounts of data from a database.
Deleted points stay in a database so if the contents are uploaded to point 
share the points can be marked as deleted. If this wasn't done then 
previously deleted points would show up the next time data was downloaded 
from point share.
Checking all results of a search isn't going to happen. The result set from 
a search could be huge. The phone can only hold so many checkpoints in 
If you have multiple locked points in a file that would be a checkpoint file 
wouldn't it?
There are a lot of fields that would be nice to add to points, including 
phone numbers. This would require a database change that would break 
existing versions. This may happen at some point but only after a new 
database engine can be found.

Can a remove from data base feature be added to the data base sub menu? It can be like import function, when we select remove from data base, loadstone will want us to select the data base file, then we will select one of the txt files that we added to the data base before and all the content of that file will be deleted from the database.

Can we have a locked points file that we can choose one of the points? for instance, we may have a feature called select locked point, when we click it, loadstone may display the stored locked points in this file and we choose one of them to use. These features may really be great for me.
> This is not actually a feature but, i want to ask, it also may be handy sometimes. Can we add phone numbers to the points? We may have a phone number field for the point and when we add it, we may call the relevant place directly through loadstone.
