text conversation out of order

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

i'm not sure if it's my phone, the messaging app or the network, but i've noticed for a few months now that my text conversations with my girlfriend are out of order, my replies to her show up as if i sent them first, not a big deal just annoying, wondering if anybody else has experienced that.

First, check if your time settings is on Automatic (Date and Time).


You can try restarting your phone, resetting your network, and if you're using a messaging app, you can try re-installing it.

It definitely Not your phone.

I experience the same. SMS show up out of order.


@evildeadfrog , what messaging app are you using?  Is there an display option for order?

your device is Android,

  • turn off device take out SIM card and inserted back and turn on,
  • Airplane Mode on/off
  • go to your text app clear cache/clear data,
