    Hi there,

    One of my contacts recently changed their number, made the corresponding change in my contact book.

    However, in my Messages, the thread from the old number is now (obviously) not a part of the new number. So there are two different threads, one with the old number present, and one with the name of my contact (with his new number).

    Hope I explained that clearly. Is there any way to merge the two, so I don't lose the texting archive/history?

    You can't merge the two without a jailbreak. Even then, the solution isn't the best.

    You might try adding their old number back as a secondary number in their contact info. Not sure if it will work but it's worth trying. Report back if you try it.

    All that does is create two messages threads with the same name, doesn't merge them.
