    Texts show up as wrong name

    This just started on my phone. When the txt pops up in the top bar it will show another contact name instead of the person who sent the text. Then when I actually open the text it has the correct persons name.

    I have the same problem occasionally with texts showing up as the wrong name. It is pretty annoying. I notice it happens more often when I have a lot of texts (I'm a text hoarder). Also, for some reason I didn't receive most of my texts yesterday. Don't know if this was an issue with the phone or the network.
