Texts looking like they are coming and going to wrong recipient

Is anyone having problems with your text messages going to the wrong recipient?  Or when you get a message does it look like it's coming from the last person you were texting, instead of the person acutally texting? This has only been happening since the update. Any suggestions or anyone else having the same problem?

Texting the wrong person isn't very fun.  I have searched your issue, and I have not found any customers who have similar issues.  There could be a couple of issues that could cause this though. 1) Are you using any 3rd party texting applications such as Handscent?  2) Have you tried deleting your conversation history on your phone and retrying?  3) Are the people in your phone saved with the full 10-digit numbers ex: 800-555-1212?  It could also be a temporary bug, and we would recommend just pulling out the battery and retesting.

 

Let us know if the issue is persisting or if this resolved your issue with texting.

I've had this happen many times and I don't have the update yet.  It will just show some random contact I have as the one I'm calling or getting a call from (even though the phone number is correct), and the same with texting.

Happens to me ALL the time, both before and after 2.2. Add it to the long list of problems I have with this phone as I wait for my second replacment phone in a week...

  I have experienced it also, it only happens to me when I get the text message and it display's it in the notification bar at the top of the screen. I am not sure if it is a random contact or the last one, but it is not from the person that sent it. Once I go into the stock text message app, it shows who it really came from, and is correct there. It is just a little annoyance seeing the notification displaying incorrect. It also does not happen alot, and seems to get corrected once I shut off the phone and pull the battery for a couple minutes.

I am giving you guys a heads up...

 

IT'S NOT DEVICE SPECIFIC!  This has been going on SINCE Androids inception with the G1.  If you ever check out Google bug report pages doesn't matter what device.  Doesn't even matter what OS version you have as well.

Correct.  This has been an issue for awhile.  Last I heard Google was searching for a fix.

This problem is not solved, as you can see by the other posts. This is still happening daily. Contacts are saved correctly with area code. I've learned to back out of the message and then go back into the actual conversation message, so as not to get myself in a mess, but it's ridiculous that I have to constantly do this.  I've powered off, removed the battery, and done everything I can do to try and fix the problem. This didn't happen until the update....which I'm realizing was a big mistake on my part.  Wishing I had just bought the Iphone to begin with, but wanted to wait until all the "new thing" kinks were worked out of it.  Very dissappointed :smileysad:
