Texts Saving As Draft Please Help
Good Morning Everyone,
I notice every time I am sending a certain person a text message I always see a few words from a previous text that I sent, when I use the back space to delete it and exit out it will say draft saved, but I am not trying to save a draft, I even tried looking for the saved draft but don't know how to find it to get rid of it, therefore each time I text this certain person I have to remove the few words and as I exit it continues to save. Is there any way I can get rid of this annoying thing?

HTC saves drafts differently.
When you go into the Messages application, press the 'Menu' button. You will see a sub-menu pop up, with two rows of buttons.
The first row will show 'Delete' 'Drafts' 'Compose' if you have draft messages saved. If you have none saved, the 'Drafts' option will be missing.
Select 'Drafts'. From there, you will see any draft messages saved. You can either long-press on one message until it gives you the 'View'/'Delete' options, or press the 'Menu' button again and select 'Delete Drafts' to delete them.
Did that make sense?Former Verizon Wireless Technical Consultant

My wife had this same thing happening on her phone. I went into settings-appliciations-manage applications-running-messages and cleared the data. It said something about I would loose all data or something like that but all that I lost were the drafts that kept popping up. Just deleting the drafts in the messages app didn't work. For whatever reason they kept coming back.

I had this extremely frustrating issue as well. I deleted all drafts, cleared the messaging app's data using the method described by cjbmr77, but still had the issue. Following a reboot, the issue was gone. It's possible that a reboot alone will fix it, but if not, try the 2 other steps mentioned.

I was stumped for a while with an owner of a Incredible that could not delete the drafts as well. Thats when I found out how to REALLY delete the drafts.
I was glad to help!Former Verizon Wireless Technical Consultant
