Messages Help


Every time I open messages on my iPhone 8 iOS 14.8 this opens instead of my "All Known" messages. The message is from an automated text. Clicking on the left arrow gets the Filters page. I couldn't find a "delete" option in any of the "Info" options. How do I get the list of message from my known list to open instead of the automated text? How do I delete the message so it doesn't come up when I open messages?

Have you tried:
--Quitting messages (not closing, but quitting)
--Hard reset (Not turning off, but reset)
--Updating iOS (We're at 15.1 now)

How to Force Restart (Hard Reset) iPhone 8
First, you need to press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Then, press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Finally, press and hold the Side button (aka power) until you see the Apple logo.
