Same thing happening to me. Droid 2. Every time i try to create a new text message it is delivered to the wrong person.
Temporary fix for when it happens, just turn phone off then back on. It restores threads to proper contacts. Other than that, I haven't figured out any permanent fix.
This is happening on the new Thunderbolts as well. Mine and my wife's. Our experience has been that we have clicked on a text thread and it opens up as a completely different thread. It does not seem to be consistent at all. Did anyone ever figure out a fix without downloading 3rd party apps?
Thunderbolt STILL is sending texts to wrong person randomly. I thought it was a matter of trying to send a text too soon after startup (I have to turn my phone off regularly as I fly). But I just had an instance where a text went to the wrong person with the phone having been on for many, many hours. The name on previous received texts was who I intended to send it to but after hitting send I found the reply in a completely different thread. WTF Droid.
Ok this doesn't seem to be a TB problem. It's a Droid problem. I just got off the phone with tech support and they say they are aware of the problem and that hopefully they will come out with a fix for it. His only option for me was to do a system reset and I didn't have time to get into that tonight. So, he was kind enough to email me his addy and I will get beck with it tomorrow to walk through it. He said if that didn't fix it then they could talk replacement phone. But wtf...seems I'm not the only one having this and it's not just TB. I've seen posts on this going back two years it seems.
The tech support guy said it is believed to be related to responding to a text or looking at a text before it is "fully" on the unit whatever that means. So if you get a text don't reply to it right away. Wait 3 seconds he said. I'm skeptical on that reasoning but I'm sure he's going with what he has been told about it. Not his fault. It's so frustrating. Just happened again tonight. My wife sends me a text. I tap in the reply area and hit send. The reply then magically appears under someone elses thread! Then I get a reply "uh, everything ok?" Major facepalm.
Verizon sent me a new Droid... did the same thing.... Verizon sent me a new Droid X2.... did the same thing..... Has anyone looked into canceling the Verizon contract due to failure to perform? I'm sure if half a million people did this, they would fix it immediately!!!!!
