    Android still has horrible text messaging bugs that'll get you fired, busted, or otherwise embarrassed -- Engadget


    I can totally relate to this back when I had my Evo lol.. it got to a point where I would have to verify and make sure it was the right person I was texting, although I haven't delt with this using Google Voice so thats a plus.

    Not one single problem to report in regard to texting. My messages all get delivered, including MMS and I don't miss any.

    Perhaps Apple fanboi behind the wheel on that Engadget article??

    I was dating 4 girls a couple 5 months ago. I wasn't doing anything wrong, I had just met, and asked out various girls, within days of each other. Busy week truthfully, Tuesday date with 1 girl, Asked 2 girls out on Wednesday, had a previously made date on Thursday (but got stood up). Not trying to brag persay, just showing how I could get myself screwed up like I did. All of them were first dates, so I wasn't cheating or anything like that.

    Well, it wasn't a bug in the text messaging, it was my dumb butt trying to text without my glasses on while I was laying down for the night. I am so blind that I have to hold my keypad VERY close to my face to see the letters. I didn't even notice that I accidentally texted a response intended for girl #3 to girl #4. She wasn't too thrilled I had a date the night before me and her had planned to go out.

    meh, oh well. I dated girl #3 for another 2 months, never did go out with the girl #4.

    I have since figured out ways to customize background pics for each individual within handcent, but just a little too late.

    That, and I won't text without my glasses or contacts anymore. haha

    I only date lookers... The girls may have needed glasses though. lol

    Trust me, though, the other 51 weeks of the year is pretty lame. Must have been all the planets aligned correctly, a full moon, and a lack of good lighting in the places I met the 4 girls...

    I definitely had this problem when I first got my droid, but havent noticed it in a while. I would text someone and it would go to someone else, sometimes I would hit someones name and it would call someone else too. I do use a different text addon now so maybe that's why my problem went away?

    Myself and my co-worker both had this issue. Turned phone off and back on to fix it, since then I haven't had it happen again.

    I've had this problem. I sent my boss a picture of me giving the finger to the camera. Yeah... it wasn't pretty. Basically, I got a text from a friend, clicked on it, and sent the pic - and it sent it to my boss. Boss was good natured about it but that was really embarrassing. :p

    My text app will open to a random text ten percent of the time, instead of the one I clicked on.
