    Droid (1)
    Bugless Beast v.5
    Stock Messenger (also occurs in Hancent)

    I have a text thread where the thread name does not match a name in the contact list. The phone number appears to be a list of phone numbers. When I look at the individual messages in the thread I can see they came from a contact with a valid contact name and number.

    The person sent a MMS to multiple people and it appears that list of people came into the Droid as the contact name.

    I have:

    • deleted the thread, but when the person sends me an SMS the incorrect number comes back.
    • deleted the contact
    • cleared all SMS
    • uninstalled handcent
    • cleared messenger data
    • rebooted phone afterward
    • and the incorrect thread contact returns.
    The problem is, I can't reply to to a text in the thread. I have to go to the contact detail and send a message from that screen.

    I resolved the problem. What I did was change contact phone number from the original 555-555-5555 to +1 (555) 555-5555. The slight contact phone number changed "updated" the contact name in the SMS thread title.
