    Ok so i added a new contact in my phone manually cuz it wouldnt let me copy the number and add a conatact for some reason? but anyways I added the number by hand and I texted the person. After awhile i went back and looked at the number who I texted and its not the number I entered its like 5 phone numbers long. So when I go look at the contact its still their number. Wtf is going on here?

    Apparently its not lol but that really isnt helping lol. Anyone have any idea?
     
  4. Don't laugh, but how dirty is your screen?

    I found that some characters were repeating on my device, just double, not many repeats as you seem to be reporting, one day when I was sweating a bit after a workout and used it to text.

    That's not a duplicate of your problem, but the only thing I can think of besides trying to make it happen again, and if it does head to the Verizon store.

    no its not that the screen is perfect not dirty at all. its literally like 4 different phone numbers.
     
  6. Yeah, I was half-way serious about that being it.. :D

    It sounds like a software glitch, to me, if it's repeating like that and not a one-shot deal.

    But one other thing: you mentioned in your first post that it "wouldn't let you add a contact number." I'm wondering if it got added more than once with your efforts to do that. It might have "taken" the first time, but with a lag in time after your second effort, producing duplicate results.

    Maybe a glitch idk, but I never got the chance to attempt to add one.

    Sometimes my phone will switch a contacts name to someone else. Like my parent number, labeled as mom and dad, switches to my friends name in call history....weird

    delete it and re add it and see what happens, sounds like a glitch. Or modify something in google and let it push back down and see if that clears it up.

    yup just make a change, any change that forces a sync and see if it clears up.

    something like that happened to me on 2.1.2 a lot. the name at the top of the messages would change. say i was texting annie. somethimes the name would change to, say mark.

    was really confusing sometimes.

    They told me to reinstall handcent because that could be the problem. I havent done it yet because they actually offered me the incredible but I did not get it because they wouldnt offer me the instant rebate so I did not have $272.

    This is actually a problem i noticed on Android altogether, not just the eris...

    When i originally had the droid
    everything was chill and blah blah aside from the cam and keyboard
    well my first day at Penn State, i was meeting a lot of new people
    and getting numbers and participating in freshmen activities
    so when I would go look for my friend Emily's phone number
    and find her contact

    it would have emily's, matt's, jason and Eddie's numbers all under one contact
    and even sometimes the other three people would sometimes actually be under their own name or not...

    I noticed this a lot on my droid
    and sometimes on the eris.

    But more so with the eris, i noticed hat
    when I would sometimes dial say "Christina"
    her number would pop up yet eddie's caller id pic
    would be under it...thinking im dialing eddie
    i would quickly hang up(although with the eris...there is no
    quickly hanging up)
    then try again and then her picture would be there

    i think its an android thing
