cannot delete sms message

I cannot delete a text message that a friend sent me. At the bottom of the text message there is a symbol of a lock. If I try to delete this message, nothing happens.

I am able to delete all my other text message, just not this one single message.

How can I delete it?

Long-press the text message and tap Unlock Message.

when I long press the message I get a Menu that says:

Send Message

Mute conversation

Conversation details

Delete conversation

Save messages

There is no "Unlock Message" option.

Sounds like you may be long-pressing the entire text conversation rather than the individual text.
