    Just moved from an EVO 4G to a Galaxy S. This may sound dumb, but when I delete the threads of text messages, the contact stays in text messages and I can't for the life of me figure out how to delete them. My EVO didn't have this problem.

    This is a problem due to my phone being the recipient of pages from work, each server sends as a unique sender... over the course of a few weeks I'll have hundreds of contacts in text messages if I can't delete them. I've tried clearing my contact storage, I've tried deleting all threads, nothing gets rid of them. The contacts in question say SMS:0, MMS:0 so the thread was deleted, but the sender remains.. How do I clear the sender from text messages?

    I did, it was because I used My Backup Pro to backup my SMS messages when I switched phones. I had to hard reset it, but the next time I didn't use My Backup Pro at all, haven't had a problem since.
