    Every once in awhile I am getting very old text messages ...they are coming in as if just being sent .It was so bad one day I had to ask the person if they were even sending me the texts...because of the content I knew they were months old .

    I'd say this is a carrier issue. The texts are sent from servers, and if the carrier didn't detect that you received them, it will send them again. However, this can sometimes happen hours later. I can't say I've seen months later, but carriers also store texts for some time.

    Please notify your carrier and see if they can reset that server.

    Also, if that doesn't help, sign up for our forums and we will give out another shot!
