    So sometimes i receive a text and it will (for example) say its from matt when i know its actually from ian and if i just reply (to send back to ian) to it, it sends it to matt (who it thinks its from) not ian who actually sent it!!

    any ideas?

    happened to anyone else its happened a good few times now.

    it happened to me , but on in the notification
    like the notification shows the part of the sms and the sender , when I open it I see the real sender
    but never had the same problem as you

    and btw , that was on eclair and it was gone in the last 2 months
    didn't face this on froyo yet

    Happened to me a lot on 2.1 Eclair. They fixed this in 2.2 Froyo.
