Across the US, People Are Receiving Valentine's Day Texts

Got a weird text message overnight? Here's why You may have sent a Valentine’s Day text to your ex without knowing today. Here’s why | The Wichita Eagle

So many people had mentioned the odd texts on social media by mid-day on Thursday that it became apparent that some systemic glitch had sent the texts to users across the U.S.

If you woke up Thursday to a weird text message that seemed totally out of place, you aren't alone. One user said she received a text from her now ex-boyfriend, while another got a message from a best friend that had passed away later in February. 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.

Sprint confirmed to ABC15 Thursday morning that a "maintenance update occurred to part of the messaging platforms of multiple carriers in the USA, including Sprint, which caused some customers to have older text messages resent to their devices".

The person who originally despatched the text should really have a document of the information in their archives. "We're aware of this, and it is resolved", a T-Mobile spokesperson said.

All of the messages seem to relate to conversations that happened around Valentines Day. Where have these messages been stored for nine months?

An update for messaging platforms employed by key provider caused the "glitch", Sprint explained to CNET.

According to this Twitter consumer, his romance might've been doomed due to the fact of a missed text from his girlfriend on Valentine's Day. She assumed I didn't reply in order that led to, among the many different issues, a ruined getaway. Since none of the carriers have shared any details, it isn't clear exactly why the text messages were delayed for so long.

"During an internal maintenance cycle last night, 168,149 previously undelivered text messages were inadvertently sent to multiple mobile operators' subscribers", Syniverse said of the text messaging event. "We apologize for any confusion this might have prompted". A spokesperson claimed T-Cell was informed of the challenge and it has considering that been settled. Apple and Google also did not immediately respond.
