Erroneous text message reference in message log

Greetings:

 

When I open the message indicator screen—that shows received email, text, FB message—I see the list of messages received along with the phone log.  However in this list I see a text message that does not exist in any folder.  It reads the date and supposed recipient:

 

11/16     6825

 

But there is no draft for this text message in the folder, no contact exists for 6825, so I must have created in error when I first received my phone when playing around with it.  The menu options give me no option to delete it anywhere.  When I open the message I see 6825 at the top of the screen as if it was a valid message and the field opens up to compose the text.  I have tried editing the recipients on the ‘To’ line but no matter what I do I cannot delete this message from the message indicator screen. 

 

How do I remove this draft from the screen???  Any help will be appreciated!  Thank you!!!!

Re: Erroneous text message reference in message log

If the message is selected does it delete just tapping the DEL key on the keyboard? Or you can try doing a Delete Prior. So if the message is on the 11/16 date you can select the 11/16/ date heading, hit the menu button and choose Delete Prior. Doing so will delete all messages from that date and back

The delete didn't work--in fact, once the 'message' was highlighted tapping delete did nothing, no response at all.  BUT--the 'Delete Prior' worked!  Didn't think of that...first BlackBerry.  I have successfully removed the text message reference.

 

Thanks very much!  I really appreciate your help...
