Number "stuck" in "recipient"/"to" field on standard messaging app

Hallo. I use the standard messaging app on my Fairphone, and a number has become “stuck” in the recipient field. This number isn’t in my contacts; it’s one which I texted to a colleague a couple of days ago, but didn’t actually use myself. I have no idea how it even got into the “to” field in the first place as I never typed it there. Also, since this has happened the text messaging app has appeared on my standard screen, with this number in it.

Does anyone know how I can get rid of the number from the recipient field?!

Hello @anna12,

have you tryed to clear the cache of the messaging app?



Thank you so much - it worked!
