    Have a text message, although it seems only to be a number

    +971 with 8 other digits

    If I long press, select delete, it just remains. Select all, all except this number delete

    Just selecting does not bring up any other text

    Have not noticed any adverse effects on phone

    Anyone any ideas?

    Do you have an iphone? If so, what you're saying is that you swipe left over the text message, the red delete button shows, and when you tap it, the text remains?

    I cannot delete individual text messages; I can only delete the entire thread.

    i.e. open the thread from the offending number, look through the menus for 'archive message thread' or 'delete message thread'.

    I can delete one or any number selected or all

    The number does not open. Does not expand into any messages within

    Done a bit more digging

    Did not call number

    Googled it. Seems like number of website

    Contact Information. United Arab Emirates; + 97123456789 ยท info@salekro.com. Footer Logo. SaleKro.com is new generation website

    Have not gone to website

    Thinking of contacting Communication Ombudsman to see if they have any clue how to delete

    ...the message has been sent...you should be able to delete it since you're not connected to a landline.

    There is no message attached.

    The phone number appears in the place where it is normal for the name of the person sending the text message

    ...but the message is further along than your other messages. Should be able to delete.

    Should an if could I would

    Look at Post #5. It sits at the bottom and any new messages come in at the top. If I select ALL and DELETE it remains behind

    I am checking another approach

    On another thought, this situation is similar to the written word. Even if erased, it is erased AFTERWARDS. The written word STILL REMAINS in that moment, forever.

    You can do it Michael345. I believe in you.

    P.s. with erased words on paper you can always place a blank piece of paper over the erasure, and rub a pencil across the paper. The writing should appear.

    Tried this and another

    Not impressed with either

    You would think either would list all sms, or would give you to select a sender for a list, followed by a selection against each SMS with such options as
    • Delete all
    • Delete all and block all
    • Delete selected
    • Delete selected and block
    My un-deletable still present

    I would save your numbers and photos and then factory reset your phone.

    Once I reset this one will pass it on to someone in Bali

    Cheers
