When my husband texts me, his texts sometimes arrive in the thread that has his phone number that I put into my contacts. But sometimes it comes thru with a # sign in front of the phone numnber. When that happens it starts a new thread that I can't reply to (because of the # sign). If I try to it always fails. How do I make that stop???? It's driving me nuts.
If you look in your contacts, do you see this contact saved in your phonebook? If so, delete it, it may have gotten saved that way mistakenly. If you do not see it saved, delete your husband's contact listing altogether, and see if the same issue occurs. Let us know how it goes!
I have completely deleted the contact and entered it again. Still having the same problem.
and no it was not saved that way.
could it have something to do with settings on his phone?
I have the same problem, problem only exists with texts from my wife, # symbol followed by area code and number. Like the # symbol replaces the 1, please advise
Is there any chance that he is using Google Voice has his primary SMS sender? If so, those arrive from a 3rd party number that can create issues and the phone logs them as a 'new message' thread at times. Just a thought...
