Hi, Emranbhuyan, and welcome to the Community,


I do not see a way to do this on my Z10, either.

I can delete the messages I send by holding down my finger on the message and it will give a delete option, but the same does not work for the message received

Brilliant! Glad I found you! I hold down on any 'RECENT' on my Q10 get 2 options, 'save number' and 'remove from recent' it works!

This works at removing the chat from the "recent" list --- but it does NOT remove the chat itself. If you click on the contact with whom you had the chat, it still shows up. And, it does this even if/after you delete all of your chat history on a desktop client. Not good.

On Recent menu, you can see list of chat (history), choose a recent chat, hold one second.

Plse choose "Remove from recent".

It will delete recent chat

Replying to myself now! Yes I found that if you hold your finger  an item in RECENT, you get a choice, 'add to favoutites' or 'remove from recent'.

A lot more time consuming than using 'clear history' on the PC, and I find it strange that items cleared off the PC are still on the phone, I'd have thought that the two would talk to each other!

And .........losing all my contacts was silly of me.

In PEOPLE, above the first letter is the word ALL> (or Skype or Available depending what you left it on) press that and you get a choice of three things ALL; SKYPE; AVAILABLE.

So, keeping it on ALL brought back all my contacts.

Yes I didn't realise that, that is really strange, all the chat with the contact is still there after deletion!!!
