    Stock app?

    It's just me...

    I don't think the outgoing message says "me" on the other end. Whatever the receiver has your name set up as, is what it shows. At least that's how it works when my wife gets MY text messages.

    The "me" you see is, I think, just there so you can tell the difference between the messages you receive in a 'thread' and those you send out - in that same thread.

    Zat help?

    I don't know, but I find that to be a little hilarious.


    Anyway, what app are you using? My guess would be that you have a signature setup that says that. Their caller ID won't show that, as mentioned previously.

    I'll be darned. Do the recipients on the other end know you? I know on my text setup, messages from my friends show up as whatever I have them logged in as in MY contact list.

    If they have me set up as "Superman" (ahem) in their contact list, then any texts from me show up as "Superman".
