Samsung captivate sms issues

captivate
I've Been Here Awhile

So I just recently received the Samsung captivate, i was expecting a bug with the gps but instead i am having problems with the sending and receiving of sms. When i am having conversation, instead of messages stacking on top of another (for example Bev: hi gil how are you? Gil: i am fantastic, yourself? Bev: me too!!! And so on and so forth) they clump together in groups (Bev: hi gil how are you? Bev: me too!!! Gil: i am fantastic, yourself?) This is extremely annoying as it makes it difficult to follow the conversation, and can become very disorganized. Is this a permanent problem or is there a way to fix it? It's an incredible phone otherwise

"Rogers knows this is a problem. They can post all they want about "call us with your details", but why do we have to waste our time calling, being put on hold, explaining a known problem, been given all kinds of dumb advice, and finally told that the problem will be "looked into" or "escalated".

Rogers - be a man. Own up to the problem, and then fix it."....

 

 

I agree.  I am in Manitoba, with a newer Captivate, and have the same SMS time stamp problem (5 hour offset).

You have got to be freaking kidding me!  This bug is completely uncool. 

 

Yesterday I switched from my local carrier here in Winnipeg to Rogers because of the Captivate. 

 

If this is an example of the kind of BS I'm going to have to put up with for the next 3 years, I'm gonna lose my marbles.

Just load on SMS Time Fix from the market and the sms time will be all good.

 

 

 

For those of you complaining about android and Samsung, the #1 tech failure of the year (by CNN and many other various tech news sources) was the Iphone 4 so....

 

Keep in mind these arent just phones, they are hand held computers that make calls.  expect some bugs along the way as this technology develops.

Actually Android 2.2 was released in SDK format on May 20th, 2010, and wasn't available as a final released update to any device (the Nexus One) until the end of June.  So it has in effect only be around for 6 months.

I feel so silly. I just downloaded a new SMS program and all is well, better in fact.

So what is the best SMS then?  I have been dealing with this and I get people who have 'no idea' how to fix that from Rogers (after sitting on hold for 45min!)  Yes on the west coast we are 5 hours off with incoming messages.  I don't understand why we need to download a different app when this should be an easy fix from Rogers!!

Re: Samsung captivate sms issues

I really don't get this phone , is there any way I could change my Conversations ? just like how Iphone 3G conversations are?
