    Anyone noticed this? Before in GB, text messages looked normal (left justified) now after ICS, all of my outgoing text messages are right justified and don't look right. I checked my friends ICS on his RAZRMAX and it is the same for him too.

    Any suggestions

    There's no way to change that in the stock messaging app as far as I know. Try using an alternative messaging app, Go sms for example. Those can be customized more...

    Right-justified text messages with ICS

    I too have been experiencing the same problem. All was fine until I update to ICS. Now the messages appear as left-justified while being typed, but immediately change to right-justified as soon as they are sent. I admit that I don't know how they appear on the recipient's screen - I don't know anyone else with a RAZRMAX running ICS. All of my incoming messages do appear as left-justified text. No big problem obviously but I would appreciate a fix if anyone is aware of one.

    I don't believe this is a problem, or a glitch.. i believe its Google's attempt to make it more distinguishable as to what message is yours and what message was sent to you.. if you notice the color box has a small "arrow" persay.. your sent messages point to your icon on the right, and received point to the left, hence left and right justification with the text

    I agree with the ^^^ post, it makes it easier to distinguish your text vs the receipient, but they could have made that an option for those who don't like it. :blink:

    I'm glad to find that this annoys some other than me. Having it planned that way so an arrow will tell me whether I got it or sent it is just lame.
    Any other option?
    Editing - not perfectly entered but I'm in post-surgical, orthopaedic rehab & PT came for me earlier than expected so I did best possible under circumstances. I'm just glad to find anything addressing this topic that is driving me crazy. I've made numbered lists of things I've needed to be brought from home but once I "send" all order seems pointless. It didn't occur to me to check the recipient's phone but I'll add that to my agenda. If it arrives in OK shape, I'll cease complaining. Thanks for starting thread! My search has come up empty until this answer.
