I mean you receive or send a message to a wrong person? You receive a message to your phone, who in fact was composed for other person? If you receive a message like this" i love you..."and there is other name, not yours, but you receive this message just because somebody push wrong button in his agenda? What you will do if this kind of mistake will happened? You will forgive somebody who send to you somebody else message?

Hi, Ice! This happens too easily. It's yet another reason I really don't like cell phones, and I only use mine in an emergency.

I think some people enter the telephone number instead of choosing the person's name or they have some numbers mixed up when they put that person in their contact list. I had an instance where someone texted me "Good morning beautiful." Great compliment, but I had no idea who they were lol!! I simply ignored it, then received another. "I see you're being shy today." I just replied, "I think you have the wrong number." I never heard anything else from them! It's a little weird to receive a message like that from someone I don't know, but I know it was an accident so I don't let it bother me. If it was someone I knew, I'd be the same way!

But if your husband send a message who is for other woman and you receive this message just by mistake...?

That depends on what the message says, if it's incriminating or not! If it's something bad, then he would have some serious explaining to do and we'd have to talk to figure out why he'd be sending messages like that to another woman! Something like that, we'd have to figure out what was going on first and then I could work on forgiving!

It did happen to me a few times. If the message was not meant for me most of the time I inform the message sender about it. If I do think that the message is not that important like a short text messages that saying hi, I tend to ignore it. To me it is not a big deal at all and I don't have to forgive anyone who made mistake out of text messages. As long as it is not intended for fooling or tricking me i'm all good.

There are certain instances that I got messages from other people that were not really for me. I understand that some people could commit mistakes in pressing the wrong button, or maybe they were in a hurry to send the message so they accidentally sent it to the wrong person. I would say it is no big deal for me. But at times, you could distinguish if that person really committed a mistake or just meaning to start a conversation with you. It happens.

Haha! I don't know. If that happens, I just think I'd have to wait for that person to tell me the truth. I would ask him myself too. :)

Yes, actually both. Sometimes when you're really3x in a hurry and you just assumed you pressed the right keys in your phone, then you get a chance to send it to the wrong person. I've never received an "i love you" message from an anonymous texter but if i would, i'd just ignore it. i really don't entertain unknown phone numbers.

At first i'd be furious, you know. i would really probe my bf to admit who that girl is. it depends on how the conversation turns out, but maybe i can forgive him. just once. if it happens again, bye bye. ehehehe

If the message is from someone I do not know and it is not meant for me, there is no reason to get angry. A few years back before I got married, I actually did send something personal to another guy, but I accidentally sent the message to my boyfriend at that time. I just realized it the moment I pushed the send button and I could feel all the blood rushed into my head! Lucky I did not mention any name. Notty me! Well, I received a few messages wrongly sent to me. One of them was someone asking her boss whether she should proceed to purchase the air ticket. So, I just replied, 'Yes' on behalf of the 'person'.

At that time our relationship was on the rocks. I was giving up in working it out, so, I was willing to take the risk, but still it was a stupid mistake of the wrongly sent message. Anyway, we were not together anymore and I am happily married with my other half.

Lol, I have once sent a message to an incorrect mobile number. It wasn't anything personal though so that's okay. I usually send lots of wrong messages to my partner. They might be meant for someone else but because I am always messaging him, I accidentally by some sort of reflex mechanism end up sending them to him!

Hi, just be careful what kind of messages you send your partner...is so dangerous if you make a mistake...
@UK_Shree (3604)

I am sure I should be, but I'm not, and I don't have anything to hide, so therefore no real need to be careful!

i usually text him back to notify him that the message was misrouted. this is especially so if the message is one of urgency or emergency. it is also an opportunity to tell him to check on the number and refrain from sending text to me, in the future. i end up by saying, God bless u!

i used same words too..."God bless you"but in my mind i say "go to hell", maybe was a emergency, but was just for him to say other person what he feel...when he was involved in a relation with me...Is just an example...

I had it happen tome once last year. It was from a company saying that my account was deleted becasue I was inactive, and I looked at it, and I knew it was for someone else, as I didn't even know the company, where they were at, so I just texted them back and told them that they better check the number before they send a message as it wasn't me, they wanted. You know, after I sent that ext message, I never heard from them again. I have neer had it happen since by anyone else. I have however, received calls that weren't for me, but only that one text message. Also, I do remember anther one come ot think of it, where I sent a picture of my grandson, and I thought I was sending it to a family member, and it was to a total stranger. The person messaged me back and asked me who the picture was of, and I told them, and they said they didn't know me, and it was then I realized I had sent it to a total strnger. Boy, was I embarrassed. Needless to say, I never did that again. Take care, and happy mylotting.

I experience both.. well, if I am the receiving party, I won't mind, and I just send another reply to the person telling him / her that he / she may have got the wrong number, therefore the sender will realised it. What I want to share here is that when I sent an SMS to someone who I am arguing with. One morning, me and a friend (N) had a argument, and it was not very pleasant. We are talking about payment via ATM, and she gave me an answer as, "well, not everyone is smart as you" I was really furious with this kind of statement, as I am trying to tell her it's more convenient to make payment via ATM than over the counter. Anyway, after that, I went for coffee and just feel like pouring it out to someone, and I sms another friend saying this in exact "early morning she try to make things difficult, I just got enough of it" and I sent this SMS to N! I did not apologise for it, since this is what I feel that day, and letting her know too is a good thing that I am not happy with her statement. Of course, the friendship strain, but I am glad I did the SMS wrongly, as then I could have better situation to explain myself... sometimes, when you accidentally sent the wrong message, it could be an useful ones too..

yup, many a times but i never gave importance or took it seriously as this is a common thing and people play such kind of games every now and then. many such messages are recieved by us but I take it as a game and play it like others.

This happens with me so many times. If i have to message person A then I send that message to person B. Same way I also receive wrong messages but this is very rare. Sending a message to someone else by mistake happens i think just because we are involved in some other activity or our mind is just diverted or into something else. Many times it so happens that I might be send a message to a friend about whom the message is about and this becomes quite embarrasing.

hello ice, you just said that people make mistakes. if you are bothered by a message sent to your cellphone and you need to clarify them, i think it is only fair to check and return the message to be sure. there is noting wrong with asking. if you think that it isnt yours, then just dont bother. ann

Hi icesmile! Yeah. It's kinda creepy when you sent the correct message to the wrong person especially when that someone makes volley of conversation via text (with ill intentions). But mind you that it also does good especially when trying to find a proof that your special someone is consorting with another woman/man. I can just imagine a man saying "i love you sweetie" to his #2 and sending it his #1 who doesn't recall his man ever calling her "sweetie"..poor boy!haha
