    When i first got my phone i imported my contacts. one of the contacts had a wrong area code. i fixed the area code in the phone and on google. and everything looks ok. when i call or text then number everything goes thru fine.
    But when that individual sends me a text it displays the original area code
    so i cant reply I need to send a new text.
    any ideas on how to clear out the old number?????????

    Hi mhipsman! Welcome to Android Forums. Sorry I didn't see this earlier but I can certainly try to see if we can figure out the problem.
    Are you using a third party messaging app or the stock one?

    Ok - if you have everything changed on the phone and the Google storage and you sync them then that part is taken care of. The next thing I would check is to go into your Settings and find the messaging app. If you can clear all data and cache it might fix it.
