Default Text Messages Appear Out of order

I am wondering if anyone has a similar issue as this:

This doesn't always happen but does frequently. The scenario is described below.

When I first text someone, and they text me back and then I text them back, the exchange of texts appears in order of sent/received just like a conversation. But, after they text me back the second time, ALL of their texts appear above all of my texts. In other words, their incoming texts take the top half of the screen and mine take the bottom half. So I have to end up scrolling up to see their latest text.

Anyone have/had a similar issue and is there a setting for this?

Does the time of the text appear as though it came from the future? For instance, if it's 9:00 am when you actually receive the text, does it say that it was received at a later time, like 1:00 pm??

I've had this happen to me... I think I have it pegged to one of the following:

1. When your phone is roaming (not connect to Sprint towers)
2. When the person sending is roaming.

Hope this helps.

I have the same issue and it is SOOO annoying. I've missed out on texts and had a few other items as result. People will always be roaming. What is the fix for this? I never had this issue with ANY phone until I got the hero

I'm glad to hear I'm not alone. It only does it SOMETIMES. And there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason.

not only that, but i am also having trouble with attached pictures not opening correctly. I can see where someone texted me a pic, but to the right it will say download and when i select that it doesnt do anything. This started happening to me about 3 or 4 days ago along with the text being out of order as mentioned above. Sometimes but not all the time. Could this be a sprint problem or hero specific?? Anyone?

You will only be able to download pictures if you are on the 3G service. Even if you are connected to WIFI, it will not work (from my experience, anyway.)

But I believe that the incorrectly timed texts is a network issue, not a Hero issue.

I do not know of a fix, but it happens so infrequently with me that I don't mind. If it happened ALL the time, I'd be a little agitated.

Ah haha, i didnt know how to explain this issue. Glad it has been mentioned.

I thought by switching SMS apps it wouldnt happen, but it still does.

I have had my phone now for 4 weeks and never had the problem with the pictures in my text until 3 or 4 days ago. Thats about when I started having problems with it. Sometimes it works right and sometimes it dont. It does it when i am on 3g as well. Before I could be at home on wifi and I had no problems at all.

I believe this has something to do with the tower you're connected to, network latency, and the internal clocks in the towers or something along those lines.

When I'm in my home, the message consistently appear out of order if I reply immediately. They always show up above the previous text that arrived. If I wait 2-3 minutes before replying, they show up in the correct order. I think the messages are arriving with a timestamp later than it actually is.

When I'm 45 minutes away at work, i have no issues with this at all. Everything works perfectly all the time.

I installed Handcent to use for SMS messages and it seems to solve the problem. I think it simply displays the messages in the order it gets or sends them and doesnt care about the timestamp.

I just did a search on Google and found this thread. I just switched to an Evo 3 weeks ago and If I send 50 text, only a good 5 are in order. Every single text I receive shows a time in the future so all of my replies show as past replies so even though I text last there text still shows as the newest. Its very very weird. I've tried doing so much and I can't fix it. I had my Hero for over a year and never once had the problem.

Thumbs up

My issue was resolved the same as the WISKIDs. Incoming messages were on the top of the conversation window and my outgoing messages were on the bottom of the conversation window. I noted the times and the incoming messages were coming in on the wrong date. When I changed the network setting under Settings > Date and Time to use the network-provided time all new messages were sorted properly.

This was happening my wife's Sprint HTC EVO 4G a few days ago. I attributed it to the tower failure nearby due to Hurricane Irene.

After the tower was up and running again everything went back to normal. That is all I could think of.

I had a similar problem with receiving text messages out of order. I resolved the problem by going to Settings | Date & Time | choosing "Automatic" to use network provided values. I believe now my phone's clock is being set by the network which is in better sync with world time than is my phone's internal timing unit. After choosing "Automatic," I haven't had any problem with receiving text messages out of order.

My issue is somewhat different; my messages appear in the wrong order, but they do have the correct time stamp and are often duplicated, not one right after the other but in 2 different places in the text chain. Lately, it seems to happen after I've done a batch delete of specific messages within a chain.

yup i think that solve my problem too...i usually have spare battery for my phone and sometime i have to turn off my phone to change the battery, that happen if i cant able to charge my phone elsewhere when i travel..so i think that cause time & date on my phone to reset in default when turning off the phone and start having my messages out of sequence...solution is just simply fix time & date to latest time =)..
