Question about Apple iPhone Cell Phones

1 Answer

Delete a number that's in my messages and not in my phone directory, like I can see the number of the person when I go to create a new text message based on the letter.

I want to delete a number that's still in my phone, but not in the directory. I see the number when I go to create a new message and it says that at the top. So for example if I type the letter d in the To: space the person I wanted deleted is still there. How do I delete this so I don't see the name of the person's number in there anymore?

How to delete someone from my LG 840g cell phone?


This problem can be a bit annoying. After deleting a contact in my LG840g a long time ago, the number would still be there as an option when I send text messages. However, after much research it is no longer there, so I'm happy.

What I did after viewing a suggestion from another reviewer for another LG model is basically sent blank text messages to as many inessential numbers in my phone as I could at one time (5 is the max on my LG840g). I sent texts to AT&T, Bud's Gun Shop, Ace Elite Card, the college that I attend, and a local checking cashing place 7 times until it eventually cleared that annoying number from my phone. This has worked for me.

Note that the inessential numbers you send texts to will take the place of that annoying number, so if that is OK, then make sure that the annoying number is deleted from your contact list first, and try it.

May be you have enter or save a person name in same number with different name. Like in your Phone as well as in SIM card too. First of all try to find out the number and then correct yourself by deleting the contact person name and so on..
Hope it'll be helpful to you.

Check weather you've mistakenly changed the contact number. If not try deleting the contact and creating it again. Remember to write the contact on a piece of paper first. Thumb me up if I helped. :)

E66 wont send a text, message goes straight to out box. can make and take calls, rcves texts but wont broadcast...swapped sim to another handset and works fine ??? any ideas ..Thanks martin


this problem is due to the text message service center number
text message service center number option is available text message settings
in this you can see service center number
Note down on any paper as it is (+9198xxxxxxxx)
then delete the service center number
after deleting create or add the new service center number
in this you fill the same number which you note down in your copy
save it and go back to main screen
then restart your phone
your can than send/ receive messages

if it not works go to the shop and get the text message service center number and follow the same procedure but the number you fill is you get from the shop. (NOT THAT NUMBER WHICH YOU NOTE DOWN IN YOUR COPY).

good luck

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.
