Texting Layout Issues

    What's up, I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate and am super impressed with it. However, there are a couple issues that are really annoying me and they all seem to revolve around the text messaging of the phone. When I send and receive messages it doesn't place the incoming and outgoing messages in a conversation like layout. It places the messages in a line. I'll just show an example between person X and person Y.


    Instead of like
    Y etc.

    Is there a setting I need to change or what's going on? Nobody else's phone does this so I am confused.

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

    Mine does this too. But what i noticed is that it only does it if me and the person i am talking to sends a message in the same minute. I also noticed sometimes my phone will say that someone sent a message at like 9:15 but its only 9:13. weird

    Me too its REALLY making me mad. I asked Samung they said it was a "default" layout and you cant change it. Hope someone one can find a way to change it.
