Ok, this one is complicated, stay with me. When I do a text message to about 3 or 4 of my contacts, all with Verizon as I am, I can start the conversation fine. Once I close the conversation to go to the home screen, and then pull up the text conversation again the contact number has a +1 in front of the area code, like an international number would. Once this happens any texts I send in that conversation never go through. I have to go and create a new conversation to that person. After I do that, its fine, works normal, even if I leave the conversation pulled up and the phone goes to sleep, the +1 never shows its ugly head. It only does this when I close the conversation. I spent hours on end with Verizon's Andriod tech line to no avail, I have deleted and re-added contacts every different way I can think of. Even on all the backup systems the numbers do not even have the 1 infront of the area code. Haven't called Samsung yet (I have the Fascinate), but planning on it soon.
