    I have an LG G6 and on the texting app, it's showing new conversations being pinned automatically without me doing that. I don't want those conversations showing up on top of my other conversations. I only have an option to pin them, but not unpin them. What can I do for a workaround? Long holding a pinned conversation only gives me an option to delete them. The three-dotted top-right drop down menu has no option either.

    Hello! I suggest going into your text message settings and rooting around through there. LG is great but sometimes it's hard to find the specific toggle or setting you're looking for. Are you using the texting app that came with your phone?

    There's no way I'm rooting my phone for any reason whatsoever. I'm using the texting app that came with the phone.

    Oh sorry, I just meant "rooting" as in looking through your phone's settings - I didn't mean you had to root your phone! Sorry for the confusion!

    If you're using the texting app that came with your phone, I suggest going into your individual contact's texting conversation to see if there are any settings within that window that can unpin that specific conversation.

    I don't see the option to pin or unpin messages in the settings menu or individual conversation options. I am using a sprint g6 so my stock message settings maybe different although I doubt this to be true. You can also try to clear the messages app data and see if that helps

    Yeah none of that works... Only deleting the current conversation with that person and starting a new one with that person fixes the problem... Really annoying.

    It's confusing - but possible.

    You need to go into the message thread.

    Click on the menu tab at the top right hand corner ( the three lines.... )

    Go to the bottom where it has a pin.

    Click on the pin to make it change colour.

    It doesn't actually say unpin

    Press the bottom right hand button to escape from the thread.

    Do that for each of the pinned messages.

    Well, it worked for me.

    Cheers
