    Double Text Messages

    Is anyone getting double text messages? NOT double notifications (I know how to correct that.) It happens about 80 percent of the time. I am using Handcent Sms.

    Not sure if this is a Verizon problem or a phone problem.

    Please help!

    most likely you are getting a message from handcent app and defaut phone setting. turn default phone one off and just use handcent. used to happen to me, but not anymore since I turned default off

    How do I do that? I went into default messaging/settings and I turned off notifications and retrieve messages. It didn't work. It still pulls text messages in.

    I must be missing something. Don't want to delete app in case I need it in the future.

    Same thing was happing to me....And turning off Auto-Retrive in the stock app stopped it.

    It is sometimes. About 80% of the time.Which makes it really bizarre. If it was a setting you would think it would do it every time right?

    Been getting multiple messages (in Handcent, not dual notifications) on some texts I receive.... just saw that disabling the Auto-retrieve in the stock app may stop this... just disabled... hope if fixes it.

    Looks like a Handcent problem. I don't get this with the stock app.
