Cannot Delete a Conversation Without Deleting the Contact

    With previous ios on the iPhone, I could delete an entire conversation within a text message on the iPhone (4S).

    It appears that with ios7, I cannot delete just the conversation. If I hit Delete, it deletes the recipient's contact info, as well.

    Is this correct, or am I missing something?

    Thank you.

    In messages, just swipe the conversation and you get the option to 'Delete'.

    Are you sure? When I swipe either right or left, nothing happens. That only works to delete the entire message.

    Sorry I misread.

    Are you trying to delete a single message within a conversation?

    If so, just tap and hold on the message, tap more, then select the trash icon in the bottom left corner.

    That got me just what I had wanted to do.

    Thank you!
