Droid X 2.2 Text Message Display order bug fix coming “soon”

September 26, 2010

When the Droid X finally got the 2.2 Froyo Upgrade many users rejoiced, it had been long overdue and finally getting it meant they could finally have the latest build of Google’s Android Platform. However, the pure excitement didn’t long, bugs showed up, many have proven to be very annoying. The most pesky bug involved how the phone handled text messages. When texting it seems that your most recent sent text is at the top of your sms list and all received text messages are found where ever that conversation happens to be in the list. 

Well, the good news is that Motorola is aware of this issue, acknowledged that it was going to require a software update to fix, and are currently working on it as stated by Matt from the official Motorola Forums below:

“Okay. I have news. I talked to our engineering team and it appears that this will require a software upgrade to correct it. They are already on it and seemed confident that they know the why and the how-to-fix. I don't have any timeline on when an update will be released, but when I know more I will let you know.
 
Sorry for this trouble and thanks for all the good detective work and for reporting it.”

As always the no timeframe on release would be expected, but with the annoyance that this bug brings we can all assume it’s near the top of the Droid X’s software development team’s to-do list. More info will be coming, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
