There are a few others reporting this issue on this forum.  Various 'fixes' have been attempted, but no resolutions so far AFAIK.  This is the first one I've seen with a Bionic; there were other phones affected in the other threads that I saw.

Hi Jamieslove,

I know how troubling those text reflecting an odd date and not completely deleting can be. We've only been able to locate one fix to this trouble and it always involves use of a 3rd party messaging app. Can you confirm if there is one in use? If so, please uninstall the application and go to the normal "Text" stock application. Erase all the text messages from here. Go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Text Messaging -> Clear data, Clear cache and then force close. Power the device off and then back on and check the "Text" stock application to verify text are gone. Then you may redownload the 3rd party application again. Please keep us posted to your experience.

Thank you,
