Attaching Random Pictures to Text Messages

Yesterday when my boyfriend send me a picture, an old picture was attached to the text message.  This picture has been deleted off of his phone for months.  Today my mom sent me a picture and it attached an old screenshot that I had taken almost a year ago that was no longer saved on my phone.

Is anyone else having this issue?  He has an Iphone and I have a Samsung, the only common factor is that we are both with Verizon.

This is crazy and an invasion of privacy and if it isn't fixed or corrected I am wondering if there is any legal action that may be taken,

This is happening to me too and its driving me crazy.

A random picture that I took waaaay long ago and barely remember will attached itself to texts either I send, or that someone sends to me, and I'm the only one that can see it. I already stopped at the verizon store to check it out and good thing i had screenshots of the conversation because otherwise I wouldnt have been able to describe it properly, He replaced my sim card to see if it helped, it hasn't. I cleared my messaging cache and that hasnt worked. I'm at a loss of what to do but this getting really annoying.

Curious to know what messaging app is this happening with?  I don't use Verizon messaging, can't stand it.   I use the atock app on my LG phone and that's not doing what you describe.  I have to click the paper clip to add a photo and I seethe photo in the message before I send it.  Mary

I am at a loss of what to do as well.  It seems to be a Samsung issue, after further talking with my  boyfriend, he was unable to see the picture that was attached to his message, only I could see it.  There is no rhyme or reason with it either.  I may go into Verizon too, but I am sure they will just do the same thing they did with you. 

What messaging app are you using?  I am using the Samsung app.

Ok not happening on the stock app with my LG G5 so maybe it is a Samsung thing.  Mary
