If you thought your day was awkward, think of the people who were a part of this. Apparently, a bunch of text messages that were sent on Valentine’s Day finally appeared on phones last night.
While delayed-messages have happened before, these messages were sent all the way back in February – That’s 9 months behind us.
The delayed text-messages weren’t exclusive to any carrier. Customers across all major carriers have received some messages. While most carriers haven’t addressed the issue, Sprint has confirmed they fixed in the issue, in a response to a customer complaint on twitter. At the same time, the problem seems to have happened across both Android and iOS devices.
I can see this problem to be super awkward. Just imagine getting a message from your ex, which was supposed to be sent when you two are together. It wouldn’t go well.
On Twitter, multiple people have come forward. One person received a message from an ex-boyfriend who passed away. Just imagine how much that hurt. Another person received a message from an ex-boyfriend”, which led to them talking for a while.
If we hear more about this, we will update you. As time goes by, more carriers should be making statements.
