Just picked up an LG optimus one (telus P500H) the other day and decided to wait before updating to the newer Gingerbread from my current android version (2.2.1) after reading a fair amount of complaints about battery time being cut dramatically.

Well today I sent a text message to someone and they never got it..a little while later I found out it went to the wrong person yet still showed up listed under the correct contacts message thread! I've been looking into this issue for hours now and still have no clear answer if it's been addressed with Gingerbread ..if not then I won't bother updating and keep my battery life.

Also I don't use 3G/Data (have if disabled) and stumbled on a post that mentions it being the root of the problem with regards to Gingerbread draining battery life quickly..but no hard evidence.
