Did you receive any messages recently sent that were sent long ago? If so not only you few people in Canada and the US also got these kinds of past messages. Numerous users have reported receiving old text messages overnight, all of them from February in one year or another (often around Valentine’s Day) — and frequently messages that didn’t initially reach their destination. The zombie texts appeared across multiple carriers, including the top four US networks as well as Canada. There appears to be an explanation, although there’s still plenty of mystery.
T-Mobile and Sprint both said the issue has been fixed, so you shouldn’t have to worry about more of these mystery texts. However, the issue was serious enough to have created some confusion. 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. It’s a not-so-subtle reminder that even relatively innocuous glitches like this can have real-world consequences.
