I saw this issue noted in a couple of other threads but my extends a bit further. When I delete a text message, the next time that person sends me a message via google talk, or sms the message never gets deleted. At the same time the message doesn't show up in the conversations list. I will simply get a notification, or have to manually send another sms in order for the box to show up again. In order to remedy this issue, I was advised by some members of this forum to delete and resync the contact or to do a reset of the phone. After doing this, I encountered another issue. The contact that I deleted and re-entered has now disappeared from my google contact list through gmail and google talk. Although the user still appears as a contact on my Pre, it is doing the opposite on gmail. I am unable to chat with him through google talk on my phone or on the PC. Has anyone else encountered this issue?
