    Hello.

    In my contact list (phone), when I choose a person and go into the profile, it would show the person's name, phone number and old text message underneath. How do I erase or disable this feature that logs my text messages? Appreciate any help.

    Hey Pain, that's a very good question but why wouldn't you want to that info?

    Hi. I don't want the recent text messages to be in the contact's profile. I find it weird, because on my Note 4 it wasn't like this. Everytime I want to make a phone call, it shows the recent text messages.

    I believe if you go into permissions, if you turn the right permission off, it will not show this. As when you first use the app it asked for that permission to show the logs. Can't remember which permission.

    My mom's S6 Edge has that same feature, and I too find it a little annoying when comparing that OS to others. Hopefully a new update comes out soon that will change this!

    Edit: Thanks for solving that issue for us, @myandroidgs6!
