I have been having a problem with the default SMS client recently and haven't found a solution yet. The problem is that when I am texting with certain friends, there will be two threads going: one thread for texts I receive from them, and one thread for texts I send. The problem has always occurred when I first text someone but it is the wrong number (I type the wrong area code by mistake). The person obviously does not receive the text, but when I change the contact's number and text to the correct phone I get all of their replies from the number I originally typed in, which causes two threads for the same person.
I was hoping that somebody might be able to provide an answer for essentially merging the two threads. I have a Samsung Galaxy Slide and it runs on Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread). Thanks in advance for your responses!
