If you thought waiting for the latest Android update was the only issue your phone has, think again. A bug that was reported to Google last June that makes Android send SMS messages to the wrong recipient still appears to be impacting a vast number of users.
When sending SMS the Android messaging client will appear to have sent the message to the intended recipient however the bug will cause the message to actually be sent to another contact. It seems that the bug may not directly beÂ relatedÂ to the sending of the message but instead the Android messaging client loads the incorrect messaging thread. So, before hitting that send button on any message, make sure it’s destined to arrive at the correct recipient.
It remains unclear if this bug has been fixed in the recent Gingerbread release but even after Google fix this bug and provide manufactures with the corrected source code, users will still be relying on manufactures and carriers to promptly push the update out to devices.
