Can't delete a text message

I'm having problem deleting a text that was part of a chain that I had deleted.  Every time I receive or write a text, this old one shows up.  Employees at my local store think I need to re-image my phone.  Anyone else have this happen?

Never fear, help is here pllucas58! This is a common issue that occurs. We do recommend completing a full reset on the device. Also are you using the embedded messaging application or a third party application? Please keep us posted, thanks!

I'm using the embedded messaging application but the text I can't get rid of is from an IPhone
