Nexus S 2.3.2 Update (OTA): SMS Problem Fixed

By Updated on

Are you one of the many Nexus S owners who recently discovered that their Android device was suffering from a rather embarrassing SMS misdirect bug? If you are, then we have some great news for you, as it appears that an update is now available.

As Ross Miller over at engadget.com (sourced from forum.xda-developers.com) recently reported, Samsung Nexus S owners (if they haven’t already done so) should now start checking their handsets for an over-the-air Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread OS update, which is meant to fix the SMS bug issue.

The Android 2.3.2 update is reportedly being rolled out gradually, so don’t panic if you don’t see it right away. The SMS misdirect bug was discovered following reports from Nexus S users that their text messages were being sent to incorrect contacts.

However, a recent tweet on Samsung’s Galaxy Support Twitter page says that Google’s system update will fix this issue. Have you been experiencing the SMS problem on your Samsung Nexus S phone? If so, have you updated to Android 2.3.2 yet?
