    Tiger? Is that you? LOL j/k

    I dunno - I just checked mine and when I delete em, they're gone. I checked in the contacts and I dont see the message there either. So I don't have an answer for you, I just didn't want you to think everyone was ignoring your issue :)

    Take care,
    Rob

    ok ill hit delete all threads. it will take it off of the messaging app. but if i got to a specific contact that ive been exchanging texts with, and slide over i guess to the history portion of that contact. some of the messages will show up there, even tho ive already deleted from the messaging app

    i just tried doing the same thing you're doing and it does delete from Text Messages, but in Contact History, it's still there. even if u click on it, it pops up with a box that says "Message not available". i hope this is a bug they fix...so much for my sent messages being completely anonymous!

    Check your settings. Is there an option for archived. I'm not sure because mine does not to that.

    If it's a Droid X it probably does. Pull up a contact you've texted with...at the top of the screen (above the name) on the right hand side you will see 3 dots with one being red. If you swipe side ways you will see a page for social notifications one way and a page for text history the other way. It's in there. Need to figure out how to stop that.

    Is this a Droid X issue, or is this an issue on all Android 2.1 phones? Any idea if 2.2 will allow clearing this history?

    It's a Blur thing. Hopefully they'll fix it.

    Wow you are right! Glad you brought it to my attention. Could be consequences if left unchecked! They need to fix this! hopefully 2.2 will rectify the issue.

    Will we get regular blur updates, and are they automatically installed? Is that what Verizon pushed out a week ago?

    I have found ONE solution but its a royal pain. Go to the contact and under options theres an option to "unlink" contact. Do that and it erases their messages...although this hasnt worked on ALL of the contacts I've done it to, it has gotten rid of the texts that i reallllllly needed to be erased lol. THIS AINT GOOD.

    I noticed it only goes back a certain amount of time and mine says the message is unavailable (when you tap it) after it's deleted. However, a good portion of the beginning of the text message is there for viewing...possible trouble for those trying not to get busted. Beware!!!
