    This is one heck of an annoying texting problem.

    When I send someone a picture via text message, it gets placed in its own thread in the stock text messaging app. It doesn't show up in the existing text only thread with the recipient. Then, whenever the recipient sends me a text message, their message shows up in the picture thread. Whenever I send them a text message, my message shows up in the original text only thread, even if I send it from the picture thread. This results in the conversation being placed in two separate threads, one for my messages, and one for their messages. The only way I've found to have a unified thread after sending a picture is to delete both threads and start all over again with a new one. Clearly this isn't desirable.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Yes, but I don't think it happens just with MMS messages. I've had it randomly occurring with text only threads. I don't think this is limited to the DROID3 either. I've read of similar issues with other Moto devices. Seems the issue doesn't occur on the "stock" OS app (which we don't have?) or other apps like Handcent but I've not tried it yet.

    It only seems to happen with MMS for me so far. I never had the problem on my original Droid (which was clearly because it was stock), Droid X, or Droid Pro. I'm going to try to find an .apk for the stock text messaging app and hopefully that will alleviate the problem.

    I loaded the stock mms app, and that didn't fix the problem. I also installed Handcent, and that didn't fix the problem either. My texts to people who I have sent a MMS to at some point are appearing in one thread, and then their reponses are appearing in another thread. Very annoying.

    Text Problem

    Does anyone know a fix to having two threads of text for one text conversation with one person?

    I haven't been able to figure it out. What seems to trigger it for me is sending a MMS. After that, the single conversation splits into two threads, one with the recipient's messages and one with mine.

    This wouldn't really be a fix but maybe a temporary workaround.

    Have you tried to delete the sent MMS and see if it stops splitting it into two threads?

    Have you guys posted about this on the Motorola support forums. This is an issue they need to be aware of.

    That's the first thing I tried, and it doesn't work. Even after deleting it, incoming texts with that recipient show up in one thread, and my outgoing texts show up in another thread.

    I had my phone since the 8th and i haven't had this issue at all. I even sent a few pics back and forth with my wife and couldn't get this to happen.
