    If I delete texts Ive received from a friend, John, John's texts still appear under CONTACTS - HISTORY. However, I cant seem to delete that contact history. Whenever I try to delete it, the only option I get is to delete the contact itself.

    The history also shows any calls made or received to that contact.


    Can someone please tell me how to delete it? Thanks.

    Can you tell me exactly how you get to this? I can't duplicate it. I have a D2 but it should have the same settings.

    Click on phone CONTACTS, once there, you have three screens you can scroll left/right through. HISTORY, A-Z and Status (As in their Facebook status.)

    HISTORY is the screen im tring to clear out. Thanks.

    Press your hard menu key (bottom row of buttons)...you should have an option there to clear history.

    Here you go...step by step...try this and see if it works...

    1) Click the Contact Icon on the bottom right of the screen(torso shaped icon)

    2) Go to the Contact you want to view/delete the History of...click their name..

    3) When the Contact information screen opens up, scroll the contact window to the History page by scrolling 1 time left to right...you should see History pop up for a second, then see all of the conversations/calls to and from this contact to you.

    4) Now, while this page is displayed, press the Hard Menu button on the bottom left of the phone(4 squares)...not anything on the screen.

    5) A menu box should appear, and the top left menu option should be "Clear History" with a Circled "X" ....click it.

    6) Another menu box should open now, a Clear History confirmation box asking "Are you sure you want to clear...etc"...click the "Clear" button in the box.

    7) If the above is all done/work properly, you should now have a blank screen except for the words "No recent conversations"...meaning the history is cleared.

    Try that and let us know if it worked...:)

    That is what I am leaning towards as well...

    OP - to check what version you are on, from your home screen go into settings (hard menu key, bottom button on left), scroll down to about phone, tap to open...look down the page a bit and you should see "android version"...what does it say there?

    You're right. There is no option to delete history. Im running version 2.1. I never updated cause I read the update was buggy.

    Is it ok to update now? Should I?

    Thanks for the help everyone

    They are now releasing the software update to fix most of those issues in the 2.2 release...so if you update to 2.2, you will also be able to update to the fixes...

    Good luck...

    Go to settings, scroll down to "About phone", and check for updates.
