    text msg that cant be opened with odd date

    i got a text (new multimedia msg rather) that i cant open. it has a weird date also 12/31/69.. id assume it was just a glitch but i received it from someone i haven't spoken to in a long time. i dont have the contact saved but i remember the number. did this person mean to contact me or was it just a glitch?

    Lol I would say it could be both..... they might have contacted you and your phone freaked out or it could be a glitch but glitches couldn't have known that you new the number......

    If u notice, these texts come right after you get a Voicemail. It happens when u don't have visual voice mail. Get some kind of vm app to stop them. Thank you Verizon.

    I am getting these messages out of nowhere! I can't delete them, open them, anything.... they only go away if I turn the phone off completely and then back on again. And then who knows when another decides to pop up.... And I'm not getting them at all in relation to missing a voicemail.

    Check your system date. Does it say 1969? I just had this problem with my Wife's D1.

    Boot into safe mode - (while powered off hold the menu key on the keyboard and press the power button. Hold them both until you see the droid eye)

    Then reset your date/time settings. If it is set to automatic then uncheck automatic and set to a manual date. Wait a few min (reboot if you like) then you should be able to go back in and check automatic again.

    That fixed my wife's issue.
