Default Very Annoying SMS Problem!!!

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so my SMS texting on my blackberry is so weird. It has the chat style where if one person texts me, it goes into a chat with their name. If someone else texts me though, it goes into the other person's chat under the other person's name. So for example, if Bob texted me, it would go in the chat Bob. But if Joe texted me, it would go into Bob's chat... so I wouldn't know that Joe was the one texting me!
How do I fix this????

This is a OS issue. This happened to me usin an OS. If your running the last OS try to downgrade (if it's so annoying for you), or wait for a future OS.

You would need to reload the OS on the device there appears to be a corruption in the database worst case scenario you can clear the database for the SMS and try again but a OS reload should be sure to fix this issue.

but at the same time in your contacts does "Bob" have Joe's number in his contact card in the address book as well? that could create the issue as well.
