Multiple text messages are being strung together from a previous conversation with the same person, despite starting a brand new one. In other words, I text back and forth to a person, then the next day start a new text and the iphone somehow attaches it to the previous day's texts creating an incredibly long single text message. How do I prevent this from happening?

    You can't. In the Messages app there is only one entry per contact (actually phone number). Each time you send a message to that number, the message gets appended to that conversation. Any message received from that number gets added to that conversation.

    Actually, that isn't happening since each transmission is displayed in a separate "bubble" within the conversation, so that it does NOT look like one long message.

    You can prevent long conversations by:

    1. Deleting each message after reading.
    2. Editing long conversations by removing the portions you don't want to keep.
