    Go into your phone contacts and pick a contact you have texted. On the open field below the contact, slide to the right and you will see a list of every text message you have sent and received from that person even if you deleted the messages!!!

    :eek::eek:

    Delete contact and re-enter the contact.

    Supposedly to be fixed with an update????


    Un-frickenbelievable!!!

    Some of the crap and goofy stuff I tell my friends, I don't want on the phone.

    yeah, this has been mentioned on several Motorola forums

    they're aware of the problem - not sure what they're gonna do to fix it

    I think this has been addressed with the release of, well, the leak of 2.2 - I've deleted a sms I received AFTER my update and its not there anymore.

    I thought this was a typical droid thing coming from RIM. If the sms/mms isn't from a contact it won't be there but you are correct, the only way to remove any thread of lines is to delete and add that contact again, which would probably be a good thing to do after the update - all those smss building up has to take up some space anyway.

    But like I mentioned above, I've deleted 2 smss so far, that are contacts and they are not in the "left" contact screen anymore.

    I am assuming this was resolved? I could not replicate this with a newer android.:thinking:
