    Its happened to me a couple times, but only when starting a brand new conversation...

    But it stopped a week or so ago... I mostly get issues with texts just not appearing after I 'receive' them

    I remember this happening to me a few times but I haven't had it recently. And yes, I ended up sending a picture (not horrible) to someone it wasn't intended to go to. :p

    Has anyone here actually confirm this is a virus?

    In some cases, when flashing roms, themes on top of each other can cause this to happen. By any chance, are you all chronic flashers of Roms?

    If so, this is not a virus, but more like a bug you can get from flashing without wiping.

    Another thing is the syncing of your apps i.e facebook and twitter can also be the culprit.

    Download this app called Lookout in the market if your worried about a virus.

    But this does not sound like a virus.

    Good luck.

    I believe it is a bug, not a virus. It also happened to me in 0.4.

    Doesn't the phone auto-delete texts after the 200th sms between contacts, or does it cache them somewhere else?

    i had this problem back with bb.4, maybe even stock 2.1 or earlier if i recall correctly. unfortunately, it still happens with bb.5
    i've sent a few texts by mistake, but nothing embarrassing, haha. i've learned to double check all of my texts before sending.

    I concur that this is a bug, I have seen it myself and remedied it by removing the stock MMS.apk and replacing with the MMS.apk from CM6RC1.

    How is this "DANGEROUS" though? Do you talk a lot of sh*t about your friends behind their backs, or do you date more than one person at a time? :laugh:

    YEP! This same thing happened to me like 2 or 3 times since I had my Droid1 (different ROMs tho) and it's bad. Like it'll open the correct conversation, but the name at the top is different and the message you send actually goes to the name at the top...

    It can be strangly dangerous CletusVanDam, see.......

    My story is i meant to say something to the point of "Hey sexiness lets do somehting later tongiht" and wanted it to go to my girlfriend and instead it went to my boss... yea... i know...

    jeepers creepers batman what will we do now?


    the title is a far stretch from the truth the only danger is human error pay attention before you hit send.

    petes mms is "STOCK" meaning it is default anyone that has compiled the mms application has potential to have this error. all petes previous roms were a clean stock build and he added his touches to. which is very limited unless built from source. its the mms packages that get modified from original source do you really have to worry about. so before getting upset about a default application get mad at google/android not pete!!!!

    mine went to one of my clients. luckily he has a great sense of humor and, lucky for me, a gorgeous wife.

    this isn't a bb thing though. i've had it on numerous ROMs. probably a buildup of texts, like someone had mentioned.

    best,
