Tap one text message thread and a different one opens?

    I've been finding that since the update, my phone opens up text message threads that I didn't tap. This mostly happens when I am going through menus quickly because I'm in a hurry. For example, I'll have one text thread open, hit the "back" button to go back to the list of all the threads, tap the thread at the top of the screen (or anywhere really), and it opens up an entirely different thread. It's not like it's opening the one right above or below it because I didn't tap accurately... most of the time it opens up a thread that was so far down that it wasn't even shown on the screen.

    When I'm in a hurry I've sent texts to people that I didn't mean to send them to. This is really annoying... anyone else having this problem? Anyone know of a way to fix it?

    I had this problem with my Hero and it was one of the big reasons I got rid of it.

    This happens to me all the time. I click on the thread with my girlfriend, and start typing my reply. Good thing I look, and see that it actually opened the thread with this girl I work with, and am the boss of. That would have been very inappropriate. Its a strange bug and doesn't make much sense since its not based on where you touch the screen. :thinking:

    I've had this happen every once in a while. When it does do this, just long tap the person you want to text then select 'View' to get around it

    I thought this was a user issue and i was going crazy. Good to hear others are having this issue as well (not really good, but comforting:p)

    I am not positive but this doesn't happen when using Handcent. I am sure it is a bug in HTC's messaging

    This has happened to me once or twice as well. There was also one time where I replied to a Facebook message thread, but it was sent to a completely different thread making for quite the awkward experience I think this was just a one-time bug though.

    I tried recalibrating... no dice. I don't think it's a screen problem because it sometimes opens threads that weren't even shown on the screen (like, I would have had to scroll down to even see it).

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. I felt like I was going crazy!

    I did have Handcent for a while, but I honestly didn't like it at all. I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't like it because everyone is always raving about it.
