I was texting with someone on the verizon text app and they were using their Verizon text app too. They were not one of my phone contacts. They added me to their contacts and then their name came up on the top of the texting page and I didn't add them. Is this normal?
Interesting. Maybe since they added you as a contact, the Message+ app on their device shares their name in a field in the text messages with contacts.
I would be intrigued as well if I did not add someone as a contact, but their name comes up. This is actually normal if both users are using Verizon Messages+. Please see this link for more info: http://spr.ly/66091Egcd . You can find the information under "Features of Verizon Messages (Message+)." It will be the first informational piece about public profiles. Does this information help?
