First post and I will try to make this concise as possible! 1. I put a phone number in my phone except I didn't put an area code in duh I know better. 2. When you do that you can not send a text message. 3. So I deleted the contact and the number. This did not work, every time I went to put the whole number in and hit the message it went to message and the 7 digit number popped up not the 10 digit I needed. Now I know I can go and enter the number or edit it but this is a number that I use a lot. 4. Now all the things I did were outside of my house when I got home I redid everything I did above, 1-3 and on top of that I went to my gmail and contacts and deleted the contact recycled it twice both on the phone and and the contacts to completely purge the contact and number from my phone it was completely gone. 5. And it worked for about an hour when I went to text again after about two texts it went back to the 7 digit number. 6 Why does Android feel that they have to have complete and utter control over my phone. When I delete something I want it deleted is that to much to ask? 7 I don't recall saving the number to my SD card where is the number coming from? On a side note whenever I go to my phone log and I have every text and phone log (call) on my phone log. I go in change it to only placed calls it reverts back to everything after an hour or two. what is going on? Thanks for any help.
