    I have this issue where when I am trying to reply to a text message and select the person's name to display the message but another person's name appears. I am not hitting the wrong person since the other person's name is nowhere on the screen.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? I've had 3 HTC EVO that did the same thing so im assuming this is software issue.

    Yep, they need to fix this. I have seen a few posts that mention the same thing. I have had a similar thing with mine since the update (go to text messages, select a thread to reply to, a completely different person/thread comes up).

    Thanks!

    Sometimes when I select the person at the top of the list it gives me the person displayed at the very bottom. This has happened constantly.

    This and the texting problem hit me almost daily. It seems if I go to my favorites to dial or go to the texts and give the phone just a second, this doesn't happen.

    This has happened to me a few times and has created some awkward situations (ie.. sending "LOVE YOU" to my boss when it was meant for the wife).

    It has happened using the stock app AND Handcent. Tried using ChompSMS for a bit, but I don't care for it.

    I posted a bug on handcent about it, but no responses. It isn't specific to handcent though.

    Ahhhh this happens to me every day. I only sent the text to the wrong person once though. I almost sent a dirty text that was meant for my boyfriend to my boss. That would have been very awkward going into work the next day. I now double check the name before typing any text, dirty or not.

    This happens to me daily. Same thing sometimes when I use Favorites widget with various friends on speed dial. I'll press one person's speed dial, and it'll dial a different one. Pretty annoying.
