Thanks for your reply. Yep, and I believe is an issue that should be fixed.
Don't you find it really annoying to have stored somewhere in your phone some phone numbers that you do not want to keep ?
Have you tried any third party application that could solve this problem ?

Regards

Hi,

I see your point but what really bothers me is the fact i cannot control a basic feature in my phone. I don't want to root it, just want to erase some garbage.

Are you using a international one x. I'm on att and don't see that option. If you are looking to hide something, save the phone number under someone else's name...

No the list doesn't keep growing. It gets to a certain size then those on the list that you send to less frequently are dropped off.

It is a dynamic list. Think of it as your top ten list. People you rarely text to will be dropped over time.

It is there as a convenience, to make it easier for you to find the people you text to most frequently. Getting rid of it is a fool's errand. Learn to use it to your advantage.

At first i would agree with you about it but i've certainly sent sms to dozens of different people more than once and guess what, the list is not dynamic at all.

I will try to exaplain it better: at one point I've composed a message and the recipient seems to be number 07. It is an obvious mistake while i was searching a stored contact. Well that number is still there despite i've used it only once.

I can live with this feature as long as will reflect the actual usage and not some bogus numbers i cannot get rid off.

I agree, this needs to be fixed, I'm not a fan of the frequent contacts popping up.

why dont you just answer the question instead of telling everyone your opinion. i have the same issue....and if i wish to delete the frequent history then i should be able to without having to explain why...what if there is a legitimate reason to delete these numbers ....my case : i was overseas and was texting back to australia and now it remembers the o/s carrier and country code for my oz contact ...which it defaults to when i attempt to reply to a text from my australian contact...so if there is no way to delete it then say so or if you don't know how to delete it then say that.

I completely agree there needs to be an option to delete or even turn off the "frequent" list. I have to keep scrolling down the list in order to actually get the contact I want. Keeps putting in old group messages and one of the numbers isn't even correct anymore....

You can delete that easily if your mobile is rooted. All you have to do is install Titanium Backup. Open it. Then go to the tab marked "backup/restore" and select "Messages x.x.xxx.... (SMS/MMS PREFS)" which is usually highlighted in green color with the stock messages icon. Tap on that and from the next little "window" that opens up, just select "Wipe data" on the top right that is highlighted in Red.
All the annoying frequent lists will be gone from the stock messaging app but will leave your messages intact.
Cheers.

Hi
I have an actual solution to this annoying problem.
Open a new email as if you are about to originate a new message.
Go to the three dots in the top right corner, just to the right of the paperclip (attachment) icon.
See the last option in the resulting pull down menu. It says Delete Frequent - or something to that effect. Select it and voila - problem solved.

Happiness restored!

For a Nexus6. On your home screen click on the phone icon. You should see Speed dial Recent and contacts. Select speed dial and on top of the page in the upper right hand corner there are 3 dots tap it and the clear frequents. And poof all is well in the universe all frequent contacts in your call and text log are gone.hope it helps.
