    I used to use my moms email to FaceTime her, but switched it to use her number for FaceTime. So I deleted her email, but now when I'm sending messages and go to type her name in to select it, the email still shows up. Why?

    It's just kind of annoying. Thanks!

    It's probably stored in memory of recent emails used.

    So under your mom's contact, there's no email address, and has her new phone number? What if you delete your message history (messaging --> messages in top left --> edit --> delete the last conversation you had with your mom) with her so that it doesn't automatically try to continue on that old thread?

    That or try to manually select her from your contact list first (which should grab her number from there) and THEN from then on it'll assume you mean the number?
