Text message display order ascending/descending S4 5.0.1?


Nov 17, 2014
Hi. Using S4 running 5.0.1 using stock text message app. Some time this morning, it started putting the newest messages on top whereas previously it had always shown newest on the bottom.

Is there a way to change the sort order? I've gone through the settings and don't see that option.

I've searched but the only semi-related threads about texts being out of order referenced the network time setting not being checked, and mine is checked.

The phone is displaying texts in order, but for some reason this morning it flipped from newest on bottom to newest on top.

Thanks for any help.
