    Default Texts showing out of order

    Anyone else having this problem? When I txt someone and they txt me back in the same minute it puts their txt on top of mine, showing as if their txt was first?

    This happened happened on my 4G too. Just something you will learn to accept.
    Im sure its more of a Sprint thing than a phone thing though. Just the way it processes the traffic.

    Kind of like how the time stamps get screwed up when roaming.

    Get a free app called SMS Time Fix, and set it to use your phones clock time. It will fix this from happening.

    then you never really paid attention to it or something. I have 2 evos and I seen it plenty of times.
    IMO its a non issue. If two people text at one time, I am sure there is a way the sprint network chooses to deliver and it might not be in the order you like. Just the way things go sometimes

    I always set my phones to use network time, so maybe that is why I saw it and yours sets to manual time or something?

    It's a matter of knowing if they saw your other text or not in the sequence it needed to be seen.

    Mine does this as well, drives me nuts! My Palm Pre or any other phone I had put them in order they were sent/recieved this is my first android phone so is this an Android thing?

    Is it possible that your phone is roaming while receiving texts? Sometimes I get texts with timestamps ~4 hours in the future, and I know my phone roams a lot where I work. The timestamps is what makes my texts out of order.

    This typically happens while texting while roaming and is almost always a network issue.

    It may go unnoticed on some phones because they simply display texts in order received. When switching to a phone that lists the texts based on timestamp, it becomes an "issue."

    For some reason the stock sms was giving me problems also ... When I would try to view a particular sms it would kick me back out after about half a second ... It did this continually ... I ended up installing handcent sms ... It works for now.

    Edit: I actually just looked through ALL the settings for the stock sms and it is very limited ... You really can't change anything ... It basically just sends and receives without any customizing preferences ... It's pretty sad.

    This is an HTC issue. I have only had it happen to me when I owned the Hero and the EVO 4G. I have never had an issue with text messages being timestamped incorrectly when roaming with any other non HTC phone. You can stop it by switching the network to Sprint only. This way the phone won't roam and the messages won't be timestamped incorrectly.

    Actually its not an HTC issue. My wifes EPIC does the same thing. It's a sprint thing.

    My Nexus S doesn't do it. If it were Sprint, I would surely have the same issue, but I don't. Nor have I seen it with any of the blackberrys and palm pres that I have had.

    My biggest issue with the texts is when it says the text was sent about 8 hours in the future so the phone is constantly notifying me of the same text. very very very annoying!!!!!

    I've had this issue on both my EVO4G and my EVO3D, I definitely think it's something with the stock HTC messaging app. I've actually stopped using the stock app because it has a few bugs in it (especially on the OG EVO). If you don't want to turn off roaming you can switch to Handcent SMS and all the issues seem to vanish, even when the messages are time stamped incorrectly they are placed in the proper order.

    I get this issue consistently when texting in coke reward points.

    And I had issues with back to back to back texts from a friend in CA (I'm on the other side of the states in MD). His would come in out of order if he sent a bunch at once.

    Other than that, I have not had any issues. Seems tied to stuff being sent seconds apart for me. So might be more of an issue w/ auto split texts

    That's all well and good, but I was commenting on you saying it was an HTC issue, which its clearly not when it happens on a Samsung phone.
    As for your "nexus s doesn't do it so its not Sprint", stop trying to argue just to argue. That's no help.

    The fact is its a sprint network thing. They know it. They admit it. Someone else on here also explained it.
