How do I permanently delete contacts from my text message log?

How do I permanently delete contacts from my text message log?  It still shows old contacts once I've removed them from my phonebook

i know that!! After you delete them and then compose a new text it is still there. Basically you know when you send an email to someone and do not store them it still auto populates their name. This is what happens with my phone. I Google this issue and learn some knowledge about data eraser tips.  Maybe most people still don’t know that actual contents of file are not really deleted when performing simple deletion operation on your iPhone or other devices. But they are just marked for deletion and not shown in the file system of your iOS device. The actual data are still physically present on your iPhone. For iOS system, the only way to completely erase the data is to overwrite the original contents by using iPhone data eraser app. this is the guide on how to permanently delete contacts on iPhone.
  The same thing happens to me, but it doesn't require deleting a contact. When I delete/replace a contact's number, the Messages.app still autocompletes the number with the contact's name and references it as "other".

    They are not taking up storage space.  Apple knows you installed them at one time (="purchased", whether you paid money or not), and merely keeps a list so that if you wish to reinstall any of them on this or a future device, you can.  This is useful if maybe you deleted them due to space constraints, and now have a device with more memory and wish to reinstall.
    It's also useful for taking a trip down Memory Lane looking at all the useless apps you installed once then immediately deleted once you realized they were total garbage ...

    Connect the iPhone/iPad to Mac, with the device in iTunes selected, de-select pics and do a sync.

    I would imagine only the App developer or Apple could remove an app from the App Store.
    You can delete apps from your phone. You can hide things in your purchase history using iTunes on your computer.

    Thanks.. J

    You should be syncing your contacts with an app on your computer or cloud service (iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, etc), and not relying on a backup.  If you haven't been doing this, start now and then restore your old backup.  You will then be able to sync the new contacts back into the phone.  However, you will lose all messages, etc newer thant the backup.

  • HT5824 How can you permanently delete books from Ibooks

    How can you permanently delete books from IBooks?

    You cant permanently delete them, but you can hide them.
    Pop into iTunes, and in the iTunes Store under Quick Links along the right hand side, you can see Purchases, and then sign in, look at your books and click on the X in the top left and it will hide them so you dont have to see them.
    Hope this helps.

  • How can I add multiple contacts to a text message on a droid bionic

    How can I add multiple contacts to a text message on a droid bionic?

    DH
    I was thinking that if he wanted to create multiple keyframes he might be creating a repeated effect rather than manipulating values that are shot specific - like creating an oscillation or some repeated step effect.  If he was creating keyframes specific to his content he'd probably not look for a way to do it "quickly" since each keyframe would require manipulation of specific values. 
    So my thought was to generate the series of keyframes on a dummy clip created for this specific purpose, copy the clip, paste attributes (maybe turn off "Scale Attribute Times") and add bunches of keyframes at once. 
    Still, you're right, it's tough to divine the intent of someone very new to FCP.  His question could be based on a misunderstanding about the use of keyframes.

    Yes you can permanently delete them from the iPad, but if you sync with iTunes and the apps and movies are still in iTunes, you have to delete them in there as well or they will transfer back to the iPad once you sync again.
    Forgive the title of the website.

    If this isn't working for you, explain what you are doing and what "reset my iPad" means in this regard.

  • How do I permanently delete music from iTunes library and iPhone?

    I had some old music I didn't like anymore so I went to delete it but it still shows up in my iTunes library and my phone. I plug in my phone to my laptop and in iTunes, all of the apparently deleted songs are gray text instead of black and they all have a gray, dotted circle next to it and this is really bothering me because all I see is clutter. Same goes for my phone. When "Show All Music" is turned off, I don't see any of the deleted songs which is what I want but when it's turned on, they come back with the iCloud symbol next to it and I don't like that at all. I want ALL of my songs to be PERMANENTLY DELETED meaning that if "Show All Music" is turned on or off, I don't want to see the music in my phone or in my iTunes library.

    Hi Jessica,
    I found an article how you could do that on iTunes: iTunes Store: How to delete songs from iCloud - Apple Support and another blog post on this issue: http://ios.wonderhowto.com/how-to/delete-phantom-icloud-songs-your-iphone-015457 5/
    Give it a try.
    With kind regards,

  • How do I permanently delete apps from my purchased list?

    I know how to hide them but I just want to clear them permanently so that I don't have all this 'documents and data' saved from apps that I only used once and have long since deleted, can u help?

    You can't permanently delete any item from your account's purchase history, hiding them is all that you can do.
    You can control which apps are backed up to the cloud via Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > Manage Storage on the device - do those apps show there, and you are able to delete their content from the backup there ?

  • How do I permanently delete apps from my iPad?

    When you delete an application, it's data is not permanently deleted.  I'd like to know how you permanently delete all of the application data.

    This is copied for an iPhone thread but it works the same way for an iPad.
    If you really want to get rid of it: iTunes>Library>Apps...right-click the app you want to delete, select delete, when prompted, move all files to trash, empty your trash. Then, make sure you first delete the app on your phone, then sync your phone. The app and all traces of its data will be gone.
    iTunes meaning launch iTunes on your computer and remove the app from your iTunes library as well.
    Here is the thread.

  • How can I permanently delete photos from my boyfriends phone??

    Hi all,
    My boyfriend has photos of me that I dont want him to have.
    I've asked him to delete them but he jokes that he will.... eventually.
    He has an iPhone 4S. I want to permanently delete some photos he has, I dont want him to be able to do some kind of sync or backup & have them again.
    If I deleted them from his iTunes.. his desktop picture folders.. his PC recycle bin AND deleted them off his phone, will he still be able to find them?? Also if he does an update in the future, will they somehow appear again? And how can I know if he has synced them to iCloud/set up iCloud?
    Thanks in advance

    Theyre all in his Camera Roll. I've never downloaded/updated the iCloud control panel on my pc,
    So he syncs only to your PC?
    I dont think he has the Shared Photo Stream option on, but I'll check. If he does have it, is it simple to access it?
    Open the Photos app, tap Shared at bottom to see any Shared Photo Streams.
    My Photo Stream is in Albums.
