    Hello: any one else experiencing this? Once in a while sms messages from like 2-3 years ago show up. this normally happens if an sms arrives when i am in a different app and then check the notification from within there. Once i hit my back arrow to go all the way out, there they are: old sms messages from people now on my karma list, LOL!

    not sure if this is device related, windows related or carrier related? Did not happen when i switched to the nexus couple months ago. New to the windows phone.

    Any advice on how i can get rid of this? TIA

    if you sure you don't need the old messages anymore, you can enable sync messages between devices, download all old messages, then delete them all..
