    This is a weird one. I have two contacts in my ios 10

    Contact 1 - John Smith
    Contact 2 - John

    "Contact 1 - John Smith" was added a year ago and i have a text message thread with him.
    "Contact 2 - John" was just added today.

    When I go to send a message to just "Contact 2 - John" it send the message to the earlier thread from "Contact 1 - John Smith". Does anyone know why this would occur? I even deleted "Contact 1 - John Smith" from my phone before I sent the message.

    Simplest would be to add a last name to contact 2. Just call him John 2
