Revealing Mistakes
During the party scene where Jacob meets Sam and is receiving texts from Anna, the date of her first text is December 1st. The second text, received moments later is dated May 23rd.

Errors in Geography
A few scenes are set in an apartment in the UK. However, an American light switch is seen, and an iPhone using the AT&T network, revealing that the scene was actually shot in the US.

When Jacob is sending a text message to Sam in Anna's kitchen, upon being questioned who he is "texting", he sets his phone down in front of the laptop computer on the table and leaves the room. In the next shot, Anna goes to browse his text messages, and the phone has changed its position to the side of the computer instead. A text on Anna receives from Jacob reads as, "That's great congrats :)" when she tells him about her promotion. When we see Jacob's phone, we see the text he sent says, "That's great news Congrats :)"
