How to eliminate a second contact to a text message
DavidsGalaxyS5

Long ago, I started a text conversation with person A and added person B. How do I now eliminate person B so when person A replies to me, person B is no longer included. Thx!

This is 100% correct. You cannot edit the recipient list once the message has been sent with multiple recipients. Your choices are to start a new conversation with only person A, or just accept that person B will be part of the conversation. Sorry - no other options.

Let me ask this a different way - how can I disable "Allow Reply All" with two contacts? Thx!

You can't. Once the conversation is between three parties they're all in. A new conversation is the only way to delete person b.

Thank you for your reply. I send a text only to person A. When person A replies to me, person B is copied on the reply. Is there a way to disable "Allow Reply All" between myself and persons A & B?

We can help with that. The simpliest option to you would be to start a new message to person A.

I have tried this, but it doesn't work. When I text to person A, and person A replies to me, person B is copied. Is there a way to disable "Allow Reply All" to person A? Thank you.

There is not a way to prevent person A from copying person B on their reply, except for asking person A not to do that.
