    I heard about the problem with texts going to the wrong person, but just had it happen for the first time. Text went to someone that I'd never texted before and while replying to a previous one. Using stock app.

    Handscent stops that. No fix for the stock messenger that I am aware of.

    I can attest to this. I downloaded Handscent a few days ago, and have not had any issues. My stock texting would also lag after a while (usually once every day or every other day) to where I'd have to reboot the phone to fix it. Handscent has stopped this also (at least so far).

    This happening is totally not acceptable.

    Never heard of this happening on gingerbread so it may be time to upgrade!

    I haven't had mine do it in several days now...probably a few hundred texts and all have went to who they go to.

    I've had this happen to me a lot as well. I'm not familiar with Handscent. Is that just another app for sending text messages? Does it retrain the ones you have already sent, or do you start over and don't have the history of other text messages?

    I never realized this was a phone issue...I just thought I had picked the wrong person out of the list. I sent a message complaining about one of my friends, and "somehow" the message was sent to that friend. Talk about awkward, especially since I was at his house getting ready for a weekend trip with him.

    It's not an issue with the phone or with the OS...it is God looking down on us making sure we are completely honest, upfront and trustworthy. When you send dirty messages it is his way of punishing you for being a perv. When you talk negitive about a friend he is trying to tell you to be nicer to your friends. LOL

    I started using Handcent cuz I'm not a very good Christian either. It does retain your histroy. I just wiosh I could uninstall the stock app so I don't have to chose between the two every time I want to text.

    Yea, I'm going to try that app. Way too dangerous to send to the wrong person.

    The Handcent skins looks like crap. Cheap ripoff of the iphone text.

    Message to wrong person

    It happened to me using Handcent, so I don't believe that App fixes the problem. The only way I've been able to fix is to re-boot the phone. This should not be happening, is there a fix?

    I haven't had the problem since the 2.3 update was released. It used to happen 2-3 times a day with me... I sent some interesting stuff to my grandma that I was trying to send to some Craigslist douche. After that I had to delete messages from certain people to be sure that they didn't send to teh wrong person (because who wants to send craigslist stuff to their grandma, or drunk texts to their mom?). I tried Handcent, but it sucked too much. If you don't have 2.3 get it and it should fix it.
