Hi Guys,

I am trying to rename one of my contacts. My contacts are all saved on both my SIM card and my phone memory.

I want to change the name John to Sarah. I edited John on the phone's contact list to be named Sarah. Now Sarah shows up as a new contact but John was still present as well. I deleted his contact entry.

Now, when I click to send an SMS to Sarah, John's name shows up on the screen. Also, all of the previous history with the phone number that John and Sarah share, always comes up as John, not Sarah. Also, when I get an SMS from the phone number that JOhn/Sarah share, it comes up as John.

Through the import/export button in the contacts list, I can see that John is still an entry on my SIM card. Is there any way to erase him from the SIM card completely? I have no idea how to do this on my phone. I'm assuming that by removing him from my SIM card, his name will stop showing up on my phone.

BTW, I'm not trying to have some pre-marital affair or something. My parents just don't know that I am reunited with my former exbf John, and I don't want them to figure it out while they are visiting me for the next week. They will be using my phone so they could easily see his name and get upset.

I really appreciate any assistance that you can offer me on this issue Happy  Thank you!
