Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Messaging App

The stock messaging app on my phone running Android 4.2.1 seems to occasionally create new threads for text messages from those senders with names but no numbers (companies such as O2).
When I get texts from O2 sometimes my phone makes a new thread, despite having the older messages. It should really add to the previous conversation. It's making my inbox messy with several conversations from the same person/company, I also don't want to delete any messages for future references.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Messaging App

I did type more but when I edited to add the link it lost what I typed. Basically the app will allow you to back up to Gmail so you can delete from your phone to keep it tidy but still have access to your messages.
