    Have any other GV users experienced the threading of the same contact getting broken up? It almost seems like Google is switching the number it routes SMS through for the same contacts on a daily basis.

    This is even more odd because it recognizes the contact the SMS is from and labels them properly but separates the threads.

    I'm confused and cannot seem to find anything searching the web. I want to have all SMS threaded from the same contact like all other SMS threads work.

    I've always had this problem, even on the google voice website. If I have a previous SMS conversation in my inbox, I can reply to it, but replies from the other person will start a new conversation. I don't think there's anything we can do, it looks like a problem with google voice as a whole, not anything particularly wrong with any android handsets.

    not sure its a problem. I think after a certain amount of time it starts a new thread. only does it if i haven't messaged them for like 5 hours or something.

    I like it that way i dont have one file with 1000 lines in it.

    I've noticed that it tends to break apart the messages when the messages are sent over different days. For instance me and a buddy can send 10 texts over the course of a few hours and they all thread but if we text the next day it starts a new thread.

    The issue is occuring with my Eris. I haven't really looked into finding a fix though.
