    I seriously doubt I'm the only one experiencing this. When I delete a contact and search the name of that contact in iMessage, their name and phone number still shows up. Glitch or just software fault?

    If you force kill messages app and then reopen the app do the names still show up?

    Messages app stock piles a sort of auto complete index.

    So you can even text someone, or a service, and without adding the contact, it will remember that again in the future.

    I don't know of a way to wipe that index.

    Or at least from my experience, that's what it seems like is happening.

    I don't think so. The cloud has been updated after the contact was deleted.

    ----------

    Just tested it. Yes, still shows up.

    I found the deleted contacts that were coming up were deleted off my main contact list but still on one of the contact groups I did not have checked. Once I deleted the contacts off all the groups they no longer pop-up on iMessage or search.

    I don't have this problem~
    Has your Contacts app been updated on your Mac? Have you opened it so it can check for updates with the Cloud?

    This ^^

    I have email/iMessage autofill pop up for entries that have never been in my contact list.

    I don't find it a big deal and it comes in handy occasionally.
