    An interesting one this morning....

    I woke up to find I had received a text message on my Galaxy S.

    So, I looked in the notification bar and it said the message was from my brother.

    So, I opened my 'Messages' inbox by clicking the Messages icon. At the top of the screen it showed that the message was from my mate Doug, not my brother.

    So, I opened the actual message by selecting it from my message inbox and it showed that it was actually from my mate Charlie!!!!!


    My friend who has an actual Google phone (unskinned) doesn't have this problem so it must be to do with the Samsung skin....

    Anyone else had this problem???

    Lots of people have this problem. I have it all the time. I can't trust the notification bar. I'm curious if anyone on 2.2 can tell me if this was fixed.

    Thats the downside you have to live with for having more than 1 friend.

    This happens to me alot, sometimes it even sends my messages to the wrong people.
    The only way to stop it i have found is to delete all my text messages, the phone seem's to get confused when it comes to messages :(
    No idea about if Froyo fixes the problem though.
