    in last 12 hours i installed gingerbread for dinc keyboard, and also updated swype beta.

    been using handcent for over a year (since droid 1)

    today a few of my texts got sent to THE WRONG CONTACT....started getting texts back from people i havnt cooresponded with lately...saying "hey what does that mean".

    thank god nothing personal went to wrong person.

    I am horrified that this could happen again.

    you guys think its one of those three apps?

    i do think ive seen a text from person come in labeled as different person, then switch BEFORE adding these two late keyboards...but I cant confirm.

    i also read of some with this issue w/ stock sms program

    if this is true i may jump android ship!!!! freaked out

    i get texts saying it's from someone else, but when i actually view them it's from the right person. it's not a big issue, it's actually kind of funny sometimes when my girlfriend will text me and it will show up as one of my guys. it doesn't bother me all that much as long as it shows the right person when i'm viewing the coversation

    Never seen it happen with handcent, but yeah it's a known issue with the stock messenger app. You'll select one thread, start writing or send a text, and come to find out it's the wrong thread.

    I stopped using the stock messenger because of that.
