Text Messages from Wrong person

I've had my new 2021 MY for about 10 days now. This just happend to me today. Showed what I'm guessing is a really old message. I don't know if the "alleged" sender was the original sender. However I responded with voice through the car. This caused a really awkward conversation shortly after.

Phone is a galaxy Note 10.

Clear Lake TX.
Has anyone else been getting a text message from X person, but then the Tesla shows a completely different text from Y person?

The Tesla has been showing/reading me text messages from a person I haven't sent a text to in months. It's very odd.
I like that you are using car names as an example of people.

Anyone ever figure out a fix or workaround to this issue? Can't believe it still hasn't been addressed after 2 years honestly. I also have an issue where if I'm playing music from my phone bluetooth, the car mic will just not work for some reason. Example: listening to music from my phone BT. Phone call comes in, answer the call with the Car UI, music stops playing, person on the call can't hear me. OR if I try a voice command, it doesn't detect that I'm saying anything. I assume this and the text message issue are somehow related.
