Default Delete/Clear Recent Recipients in messaging

Does anyone know how to clear the recent recipients list under contacts in messaging? I don't want a constant history...

Better yet is there a way to disable altogether?

I use hand cent for text and it has an option to clear that list.


I need to go look through the infuse forum

I don't think there is a way but I know this came up over there

Touch and hold a person's name and a delete thread option will appear.

Yes this deletes the chat but does not clear the recent contacts list

Create a new message and click on the person icon top right then recent

That is the list that he wants to clear.

OK I found a method that works

Open contacts
Press logs
Menu
View by
Change to sent messages
Menu
Delete

You will have to do the same for received messages

You can also go to the history for the contact and clear that, but again i wish i could just clear all with a button press form the recent menu...or not store recent at all, kind of an incognito thing...

Default Delete/Clear Recent Recipients in messaging

I haven't found a way to CLEAR this list, but I have found a way to prevent history items from appearing when you start typing a recipient name. This is useful, for example, if you send often send messages to multiple people at once, but you want to default to sending to a single person. With a full history, you end up getting all the combinations of recipients that include your target recipient, and then you have to scroll to the bottom to find the single recipient you're interested in.

On my HTC Incredible 2:

- Open "Messages" app
- Switch to "All messages" view
- Press "Menu" button
- Select "Settings"
- Select "General"
- Uncheck "Show sent message history" and "Show call history"

This will prevent message history and call history from influencing the autocomplete list.

Hi everyone, i think i have a similar problem, but i didn't really find a solution... so the problem is, when i start a thread/message and press new message, then add recipient, a list comes up, and theres one contact i don't need there to be (my ex's) so i have deleted that number from contacts, but it still appears there, and i don't get any options to delete it from there whatsoever... please help
