Calls and contacts crossed up

My phone: Galaxy A51. My plan: My Choice + 1 GB
Re: Anywhere Messaging App
I started having this problem suddenly. When I receive a text, it is displayed as having come from a different caller. And when I try to send a text and select the recipient from the contacts, it goes to a different person.
Do I need to uninstall and re-install Anywhere? And if I do that, will I lose my text history, conversations, etc?

Uninstalling and re-installing the Anywhere app will not delete your text history. If it does not resolve the crossed contacts issue, you may want to switch to the Messages app by Google.

Thank you for that info – very helpful! Re: your suggestion to switch to the Google Messages app, I have always thought that Republic recommended Anywhere. Is that not the case?

Republic Anywhere is no longer in development, so we recommend the Messages app.

Oh! Thanks. I will just go ahead and switch to Google Messages. I appreciate the info.
