For some reason now when I open my messages it goes directly to the contacts instead of the conversations and I also cannot figure out how delete text history.

To have the messages app open to the conversations instead of the contacts, look at the bottom of the screen. There should be an option for each one. Select the option that says Conversations. 

 

To delete text history, there are two options.

 

1. Delete the entire message thread. This can be done by selecting the three dots in the top corner and selecting delete. This will allow you to select the conversation(s) you want to delete.

 

2. If you are only wanting to delete part of a conversation, touch and hold on the text you want to delete. This will bring up a menu that will allow you to select delete.
