My wife changed her phone number but for some reason it keeps appearing when I start typing her name when sending a text message. I have deleted the old number ans even tried deleteing her as a contact, but it still keeps showing up.  I have unlinked her Facebok contact as well with no change.  It shows up as "Other" with a +1 preceding the number.  Is there a way to erase this "auto fill" list?
