The only way i have found is to fully reset the phone ( back to how a new phone comes) , copy all contacts onto your sim, and any other stuff on your phone you dont want to lose. like photos prob best to plug it into PC and make a copy that way.

just in case i removed the sim from the phone and restarted it in no sim mode.

then dial

*2767*3855#

replace sim, and there gone

this is a bit of a pain doing it like this but it gets you out of any difficuilt situations if your texting people you should not be !

try to open your call manager or call log menu. once open, you can see the list of people whom contacted you and whom you contacted, there's a call log list, press it and it will give you a drop down menu, which will filter the people, select sent messages and it will give you the list people whom you texted, from there you can delete them and they will be removed from your recent contacts.

Recent Contact List in Messaging is blank


I had this problem too. Found out that by shutting the phone off then turning it on again allows the 'Recent Contacts' list to build up again.

How do you delete the recent contact log off a samsung sgh a737 ?


To erase the recent recipients list, you must do a master reset of the phone. This will erase all texts, alarms, and any other personal settings you set on the phone, but it will erase your recent recipients. This is the ONLY reliable method I found

It will probably stay until a different contact takes it's place. You can also try adding their name again exactly as it was. After that, edit from your list of contacts by changing the contact name and number to that of directory assistance or other contact.

Deleting the recent log


thank u so much for trying to help. I guess my message wasnt clear enough though. The phone is not storing my "messages", I'm not having a problem with that, I can clear them, no problem. Its the "recent log" under the "add recipients" that does not clear. The "recent log" stores all the numbers you ever text messaged to. I want to clear the #'s that I've text messaged to, not regular calls, thats easy to clear. For some reason this phone stores all the #'s that you text to. If you can figure it out, i'll give u a million dollars!!! just joking of course.
thank u!
