Texts going to wrong person

I have had a strange thing happen a couple of times while texting... I'll open up a thread of texts and start to type a reply, but the name of the person at the top of the screen (next to the android symbol) is different than the person in the thread. If I send the message it actually goes to the contact at the top of the screen, not the person in whose text thread I'm writing.

Even if I hit the back button, or exit Messaging completely and start over, clicking on person A's thread still opens the correct thread of messages but with person B's name at the top, so any message sent in that thread will go to person B.

Has anyone else had this problem? Any thoughts on a fix?

No, you're the first person I've heard from who's had the same problem. It hasn't happened to me in the last week though, so who knows. I am making sure to look at each text carefully just to make sure however.

Have either of you tried used a different app then just the default? Try using chompsms or handcent? both in my opinion are about 100x better then the built in one.

This issue is also happening w/ my Droid. It's been going on for at least the past two weeks, possible longer. I've been trying to piece together the consistences, but haven't spotted anything yet. The problem is, for me, a huge problem and could push me away from the Droid unless Motorola/Google/Verizon can resolve the issue(s). I have pretty much halted using texting due to the concern that the messages will end up with the wrong people (I use the Droid as my business cell).

Google search found this thread and very little other info. Talking to Verizon was pointless (go figure). Anyone else?

it has as well happened to me.. with both the stock app and handcent...

but it seems like it happens mostly when I am replying to a text and the person I am talking to sends me another one at the same time...

but it has happened under different scenarios...

but there was a time that My droid forwarded a text to someone I dont even know.. and is not even in my contacts list...

I have had the EXACT same issue. I reply to a thread & someone else gets it. Verizon/Google, etc. has GOT to get this issue fixed ASAP! It happens on the default app & on Handcent. I am NOT happy about this.

Okay, kinda related, I received a text from my buddy Jeremiah, however it came in under Ryan, I was only able to notice this because it was a specfic message about work and I dont work with Ryan. Basically I checked the contact info for Ryan and it appears that my facebook syncing put all of Jeremiah's contact information under Ryan as well as Jeremiah. So I removed all the incorrect information (only phone numbers) and it populated the text as Jeremiah now.. I would honestly check that.
