    Let's look at an example of a customized message.
    We have customized the background image and the color scheme in pink, as well. We have customized this, and this is why it looks so garish.

    Scroll all the way to the bottom until you get to the 'Personalize' section.
    It says the word 'Personalize' in bold, black text, and these are our 'Personalize' options. We want the final option, 'Restore defaults'. It says "Restore background and bubble color to default settings". Press down on this option, and it's going to take a couple of seconds or more to delete the changes we have made and to restore the settings.
