    Whenever I send a text message that's longer than 140 characters, the playbook separates it into multiple parts, as it should, but completely garbles it. It will come out looking like this:

    -f) \o: s @b:] de;H vKQP 6Y$ 9H 1 $ #%fh7[LW P@w4] 5J. -b M'a6[,W L@o7 FC de {T@a9

    Try it. Send a text that's over the 140 character limit and see if the same thing happens. For my PB paired with my Tour, it happens every time.

    I haven't had this particular issue, but mine is that it associates the text message with someone else in my contacts. I can see the true sender for a second or so and then switches to someone I know for a fact didn't send the text. It does it for all my Bridged text messages. Annoying to say the least.

    Not a bug, but a feature! This is work-in-progress feature to encrypt text messages thanks to RIM's advanced security.

    I don't do text/sms but I think some have suggested that you need to find that contact and check if it contains TEXT or symbols (parenthesis) in the phone number and remove those. Check all contacts for such characters.

    None of my contacts contain anything other than numbers in the phone number area.

    I haven't seen this problem with my texts - and mine are often over 140 characters! On the other hand I have only a few contacts with whom I text, if that makes a difference.

    Does this garbled text show up on your copy of the text or only on the recipient's end?
