    Hey guys and gals,

    I have been having the android SMS bug a lot lately, the one where it sends SMS messages to the wrong person, and it's driving me mad.

    In the last three days, 4 messages have gone to the wrong person, even though I have been happily replying to one person only in an ongoing conversation, and had no other texts come in at the same time.

    This morning, I replied twice to my girlfriend, no other messages in my inbox, and they both went to the wrong person, while happily showing in the correct message thread. Upon being notified of this, I checked the message info on my replies, and they went to a completely different number.

    This happened on my last desire which was replaced, but it's now starting to annoy the crap out of me.

    Anyway, long story short, I am seriously considering getting rid of Android over this issue, as it's an important one to me, but I have heard there is a fix for it. Only thing is, the fix so far seems to be in android 2.3 ?

    So my question is, do you guys reckon HTC/Orange will be able to send a fix to this within the next few weeks? As thats probably going to be about my limit waiting, after that, I might just about of thrown the phone out the window lol!

    Sorry for going on, just wondered if any long term Desire owners have encountered bugs in the past, and whether they were fixed quickly. Just wanted opinions from those in the know, and couldn't find another thread to write in.

    Cheers.

    Biffy.

    This is how I stopped this happening to me:

    I reduced each persons messages to 20 max, and when I go into the SMS page, I wait a second it two before selecting someone name to sms them back, to give time for Android to get it right.

    Especially if a green 1 is on someone's name, I wait 3 seconds and always check the right person was selected.

    All the mistakes happened to me when the green 1 was on a persons name.

    Hi mate, cheers for the reply.

    Unfortunately, I only ever have a clear inbox now, and delete all messages out before replying, still going on, happened twice to me today, once when sending a new message to someone, from my contacts, in a new thread.

    I must be the unlickiest person going but this bug is driving me nuts.

    I'm hoping to hear back off Orange today, who apparently have never heard of the bug, to see what they will do about it, hopefully they'll be giving me news of a bug fix lol

    Anyway, cheers for the help and for replying :)

    Biffy

    Man that sounds annoying! Not heard of that before, but have you tried a different SMS app like Handcent or something?

    Tell me about it lol. I found out last night, that half my texts arent even being delivered lol!
    I've tried Handcent, Chomp and tried the stock app, seems handcent does it the most, but that might be because I use it the most, I just don't know anymore lol.

    Orange are supposed to be getting back to me today so I suppose i'll see what they have to say.

    Could be, I guess that would explain why so few people are reporting the bug, but can't be sure. My bro and girlfriend have both had it happen, on Experia X10 and Desire, but all on orange.
