Issue with SMS to correct contact.
I have searched across the internet and could not for the life of me find anyone else who seems to have the same issue as I am having at the moment with my Samsung Galaxy S3. Currently I have two numbers in my phone for two different people, the numbers are very similar, in fact they are the exact same except for one digit. Whenever I send or receive a message from person A it creates the conversation with that person in my phone, that is fine however an issue rises when person B sends me a message. Their message is placed inside the conversation thread I have with person A therefore making me believe the person texting me is in fact person A. When I reply to the message it in fact replies to person A and person B never gets the reply. I have fond that if I delete the conversation and choose to message person B then they receive the message just fine however if person A was to send a message the same thing happens. Luckily person B leaves a signature after every message so I know it from them and I can then exit out of the conversation, choose to manually send a message to person B to reply and the strangest thing happens, the conversation name changes from person A to person B.
From what I have gathered after my extensive search on the internet is the S III is apparently lazy, instead of registering all of the digits in the contact's number, it basically reads the last six or so digits and goes from there. Is there any truth to this theory and if so is there a way to fix this? Otherwise is there perhaps another reason as to why my phone wants to be irritating and generally not perform the basic functions it was designed for?
My sincere appreciation for anyone who can shed some light on this for me.
(the not so wise at the moment).
