168,000 Valentine’s Day texts mysteriously arrive months later
Text messages received overnight on Wednesday caused confusion, misunderstandings and even alarm for some recipients. The text messages appear to have originally been sent on February 14, Valentine's Day, but were received more than eight months later with Wednesday's time stamp. The total number of messages sent due to what's being called an "internal maintenance cycle" was 168,149, according to Syniverse, which provides technology and business services for a number of telecommunications companies.
