I pinned an individual text message in a conversation so I wouldn’t have to keep scrolling to find it. Yet I can’t figure out where to find the individual message and have to keep scrolling despite it being pinned? Is there an area to go for pinned messages as only the conversation threads I have pinned are at the top on my messaging app.
