An out-of-time message can cause really uncomfortable situations. For example: imagine that your ex-partner now receives a text message that you sent a few months ago and, as if that were not enough, for Valentine’s Day.

Well, that’s what’s happened to a lot of Americans, who turned to social media to complain, show their confusion and ask what was going on. Apparently, it is affecting customers of the four largest operators in the country: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.

Months later and at odd hours

At the moment there are many doubts about what happened, and a spokesman for Sprint assured The Verge that the reason behind this error was a “maintenance update.”

“It was resolved shortly after it happened. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused.”

For its part, T-Mobile claimed that it was a “third-party error”, without clarifying who or what was causing it. They have also stated that they are “aware of what has happened and that it is now resolved.”

As we said, social networks were filled with messages from confused people, asking if anyone else was receiving messages out of time or why they had sent messages that were written many months ago.

As we see, the problem was not only that the messages were sent out of time, but they were also sent at somewhat untimely (after dawn) hours.

I doubt that many of us would like to be in the situation of the next user. @ radgamer666 says his ex-partner received a message that, theoretically, was written the last Valentine:

The time, in this case, again adds a degree of severity to the matter (it seems that the person is not able to sleep and in that despair decided to send the message). If we do a search on Twitter we will find similar complaints:

Or even worse, receive the message from a person who has already passed away:

As we can see, it doesn’t seem like an isolated case and there have been quite a few people affected. It is ironic that this has happened precisely on Valentine’s Day, a date that can bring more headaches than the messages we send massively on another date (for example, December 31).
