Weird text messages overnight? Sprint says update caused message confusion

Got a weird text message overnight? Here's why

Individuals throughout social media say they're receiving texts initially despatched months in the past, corresponding to on Valentine's Working day.

"Last evening, a maintenance update occurred to part of the messaging platforms of multiple carriers in the U.S., including Sprint, which caused some customers to have older text messages sent to their devices", a Sprint spokesperson told CNN Business. A Sprint spokesperson confirmed the "issue was resolved" quickly and T-Mobile confirmed the same issue and quick resolution. The website reported that Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T are working on an effort called the "Cross Carrier Message Initiative", which is expected to launch next year.

Numerous Twitter users discussed how the texting debacle caused either confusion or embarrassment, with one user reporting to have received a Valentine's Day text from an ex-boyfriend. Worse than that, though, is the fact some messages received late were sent by people who have since died. Carriers haven't gone into detail about what went wrong, though, so it's not clear why the texts resurfaced or what prevented at least some of them from being delivered in the first place.

People were definitely confused by all the delayed texts.

Many others been given textual content messages or had them sent to exes. And I obtained a random textual content at four AM from an individual else?

In a statement, Sprint apologized for all the confusion, according to CNET. "We're aware of this, and it is resolved", a T-Mobile spokesperson said. Very seriously, her not getting that message ruined our Valentine's.

The cause of this weird fault has been traced to a maintenance update performed on November 6 to a system all the mobile carriers rely on to relay messages.

None of the service carriers thus far have explained why the texts from Valentine's Day didn't go through or revealed the identity of the alleged third party vendor. Apple and Google also did not immediately respond.
