My phone sends random texts to ppl when I reboot?
So, every time I turn my phone back on it randomly resends a text message to an unsuspecting victim. Not even the most resent message. Just a random one. It sent my boss a message saying I would be at work at 3 which was a message originally sent a few days prior. Then lastnight it sent my buddy a message asking if he was drunk which was completely out of context at the time.
I imagine this is due to some app that i've loaded and i should go through and delete them and restart my phone each time and when it finally doesn't send a message then i've found the culprit. Kind of a pain in the ***. I'm hoping someone else has already had this problem and found the fix for it. Otherwise i'll just send every contact in my phonebook a message stating that any random message received from me should be ignored? uggg

Sorry I can't help but that's a unfortunate situation... That could possibly get me in a lot of trouble.
You could list your apps and if others aren't having issues with some of the same apps you could take it off your list. Just a suggestion.

Okay, i think i may have fixed the problem. So, here's what i did incase this happens to anyone else.
Goto Settings>Applications>Manage Applications. Select the "All" tab. Scroll down and select "Messages." Select "Clear Cache"
I then rebooted and so far, so good <fingers crossed>

My OG Evo did this when I had a lot of text messages stored in the phone. Clearing out old messages and keeping the messaging app under control helped me a lot. Once the GB update is released, it will include a fix for the text message bug. Google didn't fix the issue until 2.3.3 I think.
Yesterday I did a Factory Reset and then realized that my SD Card was toast. That kept me from accessing any of the files on it of course (pics, apps, etc.) So, I pulled the SD Card out of my ol' trusty BB 8530 and voila! I'm back in action (for now). I always wondered why I only had 60mb of memory left with so few apps. Hopefully this will resolve my random texting issue too.
Think we'll really get GB?
