Question HELP: Can't delete text message.

I have a text message coversation with a contact that has been going on for over a month. I tried to delete it but it won't go away. It doesn't show up in the list of conversations but if there's a new text message, I can see the whole conversation. Any ideas to get rid of it?

I usually just press the text message button and swipe the entire conversation to the left and click delete. Did you try that? sorry if thats the most obvious thing

Re: HELP: Can't delete text message.

First reboot your phone. Then as afx said swipe the conversation to the left or right. Then select delete.

What happens when you swipe? Do you get the option to "delete" or "cancel"?

late,
Coz

Re: HELP: Can't delete text message.

ive heard of this issue but its not common at all. If the soft reset or partial erase doesnt work, then a trip to the doctor might be the only way to go. Maybe try deleting the contact off the device then readding.

Re: HELP: Can't delete text message.

There is nothing there to swipe. When I get a text from this contact there is a notification at the bottom of the screen. When I tap on it, there's no message. When I go to the Contacts list and tap his name I can send a message back. It opens the whole conversation thread. Did the reset and still the same. Deleted the contact. Reset. Added the contact back. Still shows up.

Re: HELP: Can't delete text message.

FINALLY! What I did was delete the contact, restart. Ran the backup, recreated the contact. Ran the backup, restarted. Don't know where it went, but it's gone.

Re: HELP: Can't delete text message.

Yeah, this thing takes a while to reboot. It may be that I didn't need to restart every time, but I'm off work today and just sitting around the house. Still love this phone. I find it a lot less stressful than my old Touch Pro. I think that's just Windows in general tho.
