Apparently, there was a bug that affected text messaging all over the country so some messages that were sent back in February just finally went out on Wednesday.  February 14th, specifically. That’s right:  A bunch of people didn’t get the text messages that were sent to them on VALENTINE’S DAY until yesterday.  There were also texts from some other days as well, but I feel like it’s the Valentine’s Day ones that will cause the most problems. And there are already posts on social media about people who got texts from their exes . . . found out texts went to their bosses or clients in the middle of the night . . . and even got texts from relatives and friends who’ve passed away since February. The carriers aren’t exactly sure why this happened.  Sprint says it was because of a maintenance update . . . T-Mobile is blaming it on a third-party vendor . . . and Verizon and AT&T haven’t commented.
