Anyone experience this? My gf will text on her LGOG and when she receives text the wrong name pops up but under the #info it shows the right names #. You think having her contacts transfered over from her iPhone to her Android at at&t is causing a problem.

I had this happen a couple of times after flashing new ROMs. It seemed to fix itself after a couple of reboots.

I had this happen when I had the same number saved under 2 different names. I'm not sure how it happened, if this is the problem just delete the wrong one and it should fix itself.

My wife is seeing the same problem on her phone. She will send a text to somebody but the reply will say it is somebody else. Rebooting the phone then assigns the message to the correct person. We have already checked the contacts to see if there was any duplicate info, but that is not the issue. Might just run a custom rom and hope that fixes the problem.

can't be of much help but I can say it's happened to me on custom roms. really curious about this. clean reflash seemed to fix it.

I had this problem this morning received text from my wife under my coworkers contact info as though it came from him. When I replied back under his contact info she received the reply. Very frustrating. He hasn't replied to any of my text this morning. May not be receiving them.
