    I am (im)patiently waiting for my TB to arrive via Fedex (still haven't gotten the shipping email from verizon!). Meantime I checked out the AF site, seems there is an SMS bug going around:

    Support & Troubleshooting SMS Bug Found - Android Forums

    Can anyone else confirm getting this?

    I have been texting several different people all day today with no such issues. They all show up properly, both on my side and their side.

    Both myself and a friend I have been texting have experienced this issue. It The text comes in with the long string of numbers, and if you reply, they do not get it. You have to open up a new message.

    I am having the same problem but apparently only when I text one person. The person happened to send me a sms message while verizon was switching my phones so I dont know if that could have anything to do with it.

    Apparently my phone number is the call back number for my sms messages now. I pulled the battery out of the phone but I don't know if that fixed it or if it was a network issue. The problem occured when I sent an SMS to a blackberry and a Thunderbolt, both of which are on the verizon network like me.

    I wonder what they did to fix it. My guess is, it wasn't set up correctly? All the other thunderbolt users were having a hard time activating their phones but it was "fixed" when I finally got my turn.
