    Wrong contact being displayed in stock messaging app

    I did a search for wrong messaging contact and even just wrong contact and didn't get any worthwhile results, so here goes...

    I use only the stock messaging app. A lot of times the app works fine. Then sometimes when you go into the app in the root thread messaging view, it might list the same contact twice. When I go to the mislabeled contact and go into the thread, the name at the top is CORRECT, but the names for each of their text messages is the INCORRECT name. After awhile it fixes itself.

    What's the dealio?

    I don't want to download a different messaging app. I like the stock one, I like that I am not wasting space or memory using a third party app that I don't use one iota of the features.

    Here's a 'bummer bump' just for you.

    I hope you figure it out.

    This is why I initially started using Handcent. Then it started doing it as well, I posted a thread that went nowhere too. Hope you have better luck.

    Is it possible that you have too many messages? Not sure specifically how this would cause a problem, but the PS3/leap year fiasco is proof that you cant take anything for granted in engineering.

    I hate that I have to use an unnecessary (for me) app...running in the background...because the stock app screws up.

    I experience the same issue. Usually just backing out of the app and going back in clears it up. Hasn't happened frequently enough to piss me off too bad yet.
