    This is a message to the group and to Apple. The new ios8 software has some great features. One very disappointing feature and problem I am having is the "new" feature that stores pictures you have deleted in the detail portion of your text message with people. In fact, the attachments/pictures of "deleted" pictures from a year ago are still in my phone and all of our phones. Apple has been storing them on our devices. This is a real issue.

    The biggest problem is that you cannot permanently delete theses pictures/attachments. I have deleted the pictures and then they reappear.

    I have opened up a case # with support and it is yet to be resolved. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Once you send a picture, it's out of your control.

    Even if you delete it from your phone, you can't delete it from the recipients phone. I've never deleted a picture and have it show up again though..
