    Has anyone ever have txt messages coming in(4-8 at once) and you attempt to reply to the first person but somehow it replies to the last person that txted you but it leaves the txt conversation of the person you wanted to orginally txt?

    I nearly sent the wrong people txt when this happens.

    See attachment below for explaination.

    I send a lot of texts, and i mean about 4,000 a month, and I've never had more than 3 new messages while typing a new text.

    Maybe you should type faster? :D

    Sometimes, after clicking the SMS icon, the blank screen goes longer than the two or three second normal lag. Then, when I touch the screen, whatever portion I touch appears.

    I tried to take a screen shot of it for proof at the Apple store but the picture displays everything fine.

    Really weird.

    Unrelated but sometimes I will send a message to somebody and when they text me back it will display their number instead of contact name, it will also start a new conversation with this number. :confused:

    I get this all the time, and I also send many txt messages every month (~15000), and it happens very often for me, I need to look into it and see exactly when it happens. The only way to fix it is to go back into the text message listing with all the contacts (arrow back to Messages), and you're in business again.

    quick edit: just got 3 messages, happened again

    This could REALLY get someone on trouble lol!!!

    I haven't had this happen, but I get text messages in the wrong order when they are long all the time. Its like if they are too long they get split in pieces and come in mixed up order. It is annoying.

    Wow, although I'm not a heavy texter, I haven't seen this happen. Neither has my daughter who texts quite a bit.
