HTC Thunderbolt routinely texts the wrong person
CoolDude

Do other Android phones have this problem?  Thunderbolts will sometimes when texting freeze up for a second and then your text will go to some other random person, usually somebody you've also been texting recently.

 

This is bad news.  Verizon, what's the deal here?  I know you guys know about this issue.  What kind of fix is available and if there is none please give me a Blackberry.

I was told by HTC this evening that Verizon has to reprovision the line . Apparently when a text comes in it is reading the imis number instead of the phone number and therefore the reply is sent to the wrong person.

Thanks to the community for your responses.

 

Its very upseting for the device to send Text messages to the wrong person.This has been brought to our product investigation team and HTC. There is no known resolution at this time. As soon as one is available we will post the information.

 

Thank you

Nope. As I said, HTC told me to clear cookies, caches, and history then reboot. If still a problem, which mine is, it is Verizon and they need to reprovision your line, basically delete and totally set it up again. Don't bother calling Verizon CS as they have done nothing for me but lie to me and waste hours of my time. Literally.

It happens more frequently lately, I find the more open strings there are the more likely this happens.  Very frustrating and sometimes embarrassing.

For the record this is happening to me also all the time and only started a few weeks ago.  Very frustrating.... don't even want to use text anymore and have to watch what I say to my BF.  Pretty ridiculous.  Should be fixable since this has never happened to me before and I've been using an HTC Android Phone for nearly 2 years.
