Not to go too deep into what happend, there was a "medical emergency" today and what happend was very disconcerning. I was texting my mom while she was taking another family member to the hospital and on my droid 4 the text i sent was a normal text but what she recieved was a whole bunch of symbols "(*&^%%^$@!)" U know. This confused her, so she didnt text back and thus i was left out of the loop. Is this something wrong with my phone (brand new, 4 days ago) or her phone its a decdent flip phone, or could it just be some sort of mishap with verizon. I would normally ignore something like this, but in an emergency this makes the phone more aof a liability than a tool of rescue. Thanks in advance for whatever answer can be dug up on the issue.... FYI, down with the iphone. Droid and verizon wont slow my phone down on purpose just to get me to buy the newest model.
