    I thought this time stamping/order issue was fixed in an earlier OSX update, but I still seem to have messages completely out of order when I use iMessage on my Mac. Granted, it may have 30-100 messages to re sync every day or so but I don't understand why they are so out of place - some of my replies or recipients replies are 4, 5, 10 messages back. It's bizarre.

    e.g;

    My reply was at 12.46 but the original message was at 12.37, however, the latter is displayed lower down the thread than the reply.

    I'm still getting that a little too. I was able to decrease the frequency of this problem once I realized that not all of my iMessage devices were using the same address/phone number. Once I set them all to use the phone number as the primary contact, it got better.

    Yeah, I have all my devices set to only my phone number. Ordering is fine on iPad even if I don't use it for a few days, but the Mac problem, whilst improved, is still way off for the best part. Shame, because I do actually love sending messages from my Mac when I'm working. So much more efficient than picking up my iPhone to read and reply.

    Resolved

    Complete closure of the iMessage app and a reboot later and they've re ordered back in the correct chronological form.

    Result :)

    That's good. Hopefully it will stay in order from now on.
