I am still here and I think I have your answer

Sure, all I need to see is , when I delete a text , can I set the timestamp of the non deleted text to be shown in my message inbox against the contacts name. Current behavior of IOS is it displays the last received message timestamp , even if it's deleted .
Expert:  Samuel White replied 11 months ago.

You are probably not going to love it but since one of the recent updates it keeps the last timestamp and in new ios it also leaves the message at the top of the list. As I see the only way to change that is to delete the whole thread which in most cases is not what you want to do.

do i get my money back as you cant crack this?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
are you there?
Expert:  Samuel White replied 11 months ago.

Honestly there is nothing to crack it is how your phone is set up. I believe they have a way of refunding money but that goes through the company I am paid from them for me time trying to help you. I hope I did to some extent... sorry the answer was what it was. If you feel I trying please rate me based on my help with you. If you want me to look more I can.
