I have received several text messages from person A. The name and phone number were correct. Today, I received a text message from person A. Facebook Messenger has the correct phone number, but all text messages from person A now are listed as coming from another name. All other messages/senders in Facebook Messenger seem to be correct.
I have a Samsung Android phone. My contacts are in Google Contacts. I checked my contacts and both person A and the other person have the correct information. Facebook Messenger has permission to access the contacts. It seems to work for every other message. It seemed to work fine up until today, when it decided to change the name of the sender. I have restarted the phone, and the problem did not go away.
As far as I can tell, there is zero connection between the two contacts. Two distinct people who have no relationship with each other. Phone numbers from different area codes. They do not have the same email provider. Their names are not close/similar. They do not work at the same company. etc.
I have never heard of this type of problem, and I don't really have any ideas as to how/why Facebook Messenger changed the name of the sender, but still shows the correct phone number. Any ideas/suggestions?
