Texts going to wrong people

Does Verizon ever act on these blog messages?  I called Verizon yesterday to report that my texts are going to the wrong people.  They said that had never happened and referred me to tech support who could not figure it out.  No solution provided.   I use texts for personal and business.  This is an extreme compromise with privacy laws and personal privacy as well.   What can be done?

Re: Texts going to wrong people

A rep may reply but for real tech support you are better off going through Verizon directly. Have you tried doing an Internet search on your issue to see if others are experiencing it and have any solutions? It is an odd thing so I'm not aware of it being a normal bug with Verizon in general. You may have a hardware issue with your phone where it's not recognizing the correct numbers you are texting.  Does this occur if you manually input the phone number you're texting versus texting a number in your address book? Have you gone through your contacts and made sure the numbers are still correct in there? If someone texts you first and you reply do they receive the reply or is it still going to the wrong number?
