How to clear "Recent list" when you text.

When you text, there're 3 options for you to input the receiver. "recent list", "contact", and "manual". I just wanna know how you can clear the names on "recent list".

Re: How to clear "Recent list" when you text.

Do any of you read the subject of this post or do you just have no clue how to comprehend a simple sentence??? Anyone who wrote "oh uh duh you just erase your text history just like the call history...." No that is not what we are talking about, the question is how do you erase the RECENT LIST under messaging. Simple answer is you can not erase that option which I have never seen on a phone and I do not even think a software upgrade can add something like that.
