    yes, I'd swap it. Or at least take it back to the store and show them what it's doing...and see what they suggest!

    I think there is a ghost in your house %&*#ing with you. Get rid of the ghost first and see if the issues persist.

    Do you drink to excess or take Ambien?

    But seriously, exchange your phone.

    Interesting, I wonder how your sim was causing the problem. By the way, were you using the stock sms program or did you have one installed? If you installed one did you remove the stock one?

    This is interesting. My son's phone was doing something similar. Everytime he would turn the phone off and back on, it was sending several old messages to several people. So he would get all these messages from people with Question Marks. My daughter locked up my sons phone and he had to get it replaced and since than it has not happened. They did NOT however replace his SIM card. So I am curious if your problem went away after getting the new SIM card? He did say it was kind of weird because when he sent messages he could see the little wheel turning like it was sending a message and it never really did finish although the people were getting the message the original time he sent it as well as the times after he turned the phone on and off.

    Also, he is using Handcent for messaging but so were the other 3 Captivates in our house and there was no problems with those and he hasn't had a problem since he got his phone replaced.
