REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): I don’t know
By mistake, with my French phone number I sent an SMS to another French phone number starting with the country calling code +33 followed by 6 instead of 7 (only the first digit was wrong). When I wanted to send another SMS to the correct number, I noticed that it was still sent to the wrong number. Similar phone numbers seem to be merged together and the first phone number used will be selected. The workaround to fix the issue was to delete the conversation and start a new one to the correct phone number.
I noticed the issue also happened when sending by mistake an SMS to a phone number with the wrong country calling code, for example Germany +49 instead of UK +44 (only the country calling code was wrong).
I tested with Sailfish OS 126.96.36.199 but the issue may happen with newer versions also. If the issue is already fixed in the last version, this bug report can still be useful as an archive to past bugs (I did not find this one when searching).
Note: the phone numbers are not saved as contacts.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Send an SMS to a phone number with a wrong first digit or a wrong country calling code
- Send an SMS to the correct phone number
The SMS should be sent to the correct phone number.
The SMS is sent to the wrong phone number.
