    I did a search of the Forum and came up empty-handed so forgive me if there has already been a thread on this topic.

    Does anyone know how to purge/clear the drop-down list of recent contacts in the Messaging app?

    Thanks for any help....

    You can't. It stores the last 10 names/numbers that you text. There is one way... a "Hard Reset" and start over.

    But there is a way, if you don't mind dirtying your hands a bit... use FileZ (or similar) and deleta the file "SMS Quicklist" from RAM.

    Um....I have a better solution that is almost indetectable...

    I use an old file stored in BackupMan to REPLACE the messaging list, so it isn't so obvious when a snooper comes-a-snoopin.

    First you have to establish a messaging list that is benign. Then do a manual backup to BackupMan. This file set will be saved for future use, until you delete it. (you may want to rename the file set so you can remember it later)

    Now whenever necessary, go into BackupMan do a "Restore Individual Files" and choose "AddressingLibRecent".

    Viola~~your old messaging list is now replaced with one that has no hidden dangers

    Well now that's thinking! Is this BackUpMan a share/freeware? Where can it be purchased?

    Thanks to all for your input!

    Er... why do you need a back-up utility in-between... just save your "safe" list to SD card, and copy it back... Or am I missing something crucial?
    Game over!

    Ingenious solution!

    I have BackupMan so I've just always relied on that but I can't see why your way wouldn't work too.
