    I got my phone on launch day and now all the sudden the last week at least I've had weird issues with texting. I thought maybe it was Handcent but I just noticed it on the default texting app. For awhile on Handcent sometimes when I'd open a 'conversation' it would have one persons messages but another persons name on the top. Yesterday I sent a text to one person, it showed in the conversation that it went to the correct person, but someone else actually received it(and it didn't show on my end that the wrong person got it). I deleted Handcent, as obviously that's unacceptable..Who would want, say, their mom, to get a questionable text meant for one of your fly honeys right?! However, I was just looking at texts from last night sent from the default text app and it showed a text I'd sent to one person going to the wrong person(but I know the right one received it...basically the opposite of what happened previously). Has anyone else had issues like this?!

    I don't know that I have seen the issue on handcent but I have seen it on the stock messaging app. Did you try reinstalling handcent and see.if it does it again? Also clear data for handcent and stock msg app in manage applications

    I have always had nightmares about this situation actually happening. That would be TOTALLY NOT COOL!

    If it helps you at all in terms of "you're not alone," I'm having these exact issues. Found this thread looking for solutions, as I don't have any.

    There was a big story on Engadget about this awhile back. Google has been aware but didn't see it as a priority to fix..If that is not a freaking important thing to fix I don't know what is. Could cause some serious problems for people!! All the attention on Engadget is getting them to fix it though.
