In some cases the hiccups seem to have caused clumsiness, with people receiving texts from alien exes.
& # 39; [My ex and me] & # 39; have not spoken in months. The text I received said he couldn't wait to see me tonight. I came to conclusions and thought he was sending someone else a text message and sending it to me as a & # 39; accident & # 39; that tried to make me jealous. What didn't work, & said a Twitter user using @imlaurax.
& # 39; I sent a long text back and said it was immature and then saw that it happened to everyone and felt bad. & # 39;

However, other results of the glitch seem to have yielded more traumatic results.
Several users say they have received text messages from deceased loved ones, including deceased men and friends.

A representative of Sprint confirmed that the courier had been hit by the glitch and said that the maintenance was taking place on his message platform.
& # 39; A maintenance update was made last night for some of the messaging platforms from multiple US providers, including Sprint, which caused some customers to send older text messages to their devices & # 39 ;, said a Sprint representative.
& # 39; The problem was resolved not long after it occurred. We apologize for any confusion this has caused. & # 39;
It is unclear how many people were affected in total, but a discussion about Reddit about the glitch now has nearly 1,000 responses, many of which users report their response to receiving the messages.
