HI I Have some contacts that have a *82 before their number so that my private block goes away.

When I send texts, how can I choose to send and receive to the other number, the one without the *82 ? because I am having trouble...when I send a txt i send to the number without the *82, when I get one back, and try to reply it goes to the *82 number and never goes through.

Also, How do I clear a thread? or delete one?
