My wife and I both have iPhones and using iOS 5.1.1 We text routinely throughout the day. I randomly recieve her texts in two different threads, when I go to the top of the thread and click "Contact>" one of them highlights her phone number as the source and the other highlights her email address as the source. On her phone it all appears as a single thread with me, but when I send a text to her it I have to send it in both threads to make sure she gets it, she will only get one of them and I have no way of knowing which one she will get at any given time. Does anyone know why it switched back and forth? It isn't tied to WiFi vs 4g as far as we can tell, we both get the normal blue vs green to indicate SMS vs iMessage.

In case that was confusing, here's an example. If she sends me a text I always get it in one of the two threads, no issue. If I respond to something she just texted me in the same thread, she gets it. Again, no problem. If I send her a text a few hours later in only one of the two threads, she may or may not receive it. To make sure she gets it I send it in both, she only gets it once, and if she responds I know which one her phone is currently on.
