This happens in handcent, the stock app, when receiving tweets or regular ol' texts.. I was told I need to take my Droid X into the corporate store (where they have actual (supposed) techs) to where they have to hook my phone up to THEIR system and
flash my phone. If that doesn't work, then they send me a new phone. (well, refurbished....500$ and I get a refurbished phone...) anyways, they are aware of the problem. The guy told me that the last update that was released a month or two ago was suppoed to have fixed the issue. well, it does NOT fix the issue. I did get in writing from him though that I would get a replacement phone and keep my current phone while the new one is sent out. I have his contact email and he said he'd order it for me so that another agent wouldnt have to order it and i'd have to send my phone in first and use a loaner. EIther he's really nice, OR he likes me. Jesus we could be married, we've spoken 5 times now and he calls to see if im still having the problem. Hes not a creeper, hes actually really nice. My record was 14 in a row at 3 am, it was lovely..... SOME OF THE BEST BUY ASSOCIATES ARE GOOD TECHS. BUT NONE OF THE REGULAR VERIZON STORES HAVE ANYTHING BUT CRAPPY SALES PEOPLE WHO CANT EVEN SELL ANYTHING, THEY HAVE NO CLUE. You have to go in there knowing what you want. or you are screwed. So, go to a CORPORATE store. Call them and ask them if they are corporate stores, or just call Verizon from 611 on your phone and have them tell you where they are located.
I registered here for two reasons:
1) I want to let everyone in this thread know that this isn't a Verizon issue... I have a stock Glalaxy Note on AT&T (it's a week old) and everything worked perfectly fine until I installed Go SMS Pro. Now, I get double incoming text messages, and they show up in ALL of the messaging programs.
2) I want to be part of figuring out the fix, or at least knowing when someone else figures it out.
For what it's worth, I have disabled all notifications on everything except Go SMS Pro.
I cleared the data (menu, Settings, Applications, Manage Applications - select each App and choose Clear Data for each app, including the stock messaging app) and then re-launched Go SMS Pro and Handcent. Once in each app, I configured as I needed (no notifications in Handcent and chose theme and other settings in Go) and it works fine now.
hello i have the same problem whit my hdc a9100d sammung calaxy s2 i make factory reset the change the setting al in all nothing works for me it not rooted wat i do if sombody send me 1 message it run the whole day it make me realy crazy even 1 or 2 days later i recive the same txt message and all er from the same data and time .
after factory reset i lost even all me numbers but it stop only a few days then it start over again
is ther now realy nothing what realy can stop this
I had the same problem for months on galaxy Y but it solved when i DELETED ALL MESSAGE HISTORY. hope it helps :)
Agreeing with an above post, it's not a network issue, it isn't really a issue with the phone itself. I tried handcent when I first switched to android a year or so ago and had this problem over and over. Once I upgraded to a Droid x and used Go SMS, never had another problem. Tried handcent again and it starts again. Now with my GNex I'm sticking with GoSMS. Seems like Handcent has difficulty taking over for the stock app for whatever reason.
Sorry but this is a known android error for some time now if you'll go here and report it it'll help:
I can confirm that deleting all SMS history seems to work, but it's only been a few hours... ;-) Do not bother wiping your phone or talking to Verizon. This is a not a network issue -- at least not in my case. Verizon has no record of the duplicate messages, it's the phone itself that's generating them.
Also, not sure if it's any more effective/aggressive than just deleting history from the UI, but I deleted the raw smsmms database file as root:
Try deleting google framework the cache and data... also I've heard if you go to settings> date and time> make sure automatic date and time network provided and automatic time zone network provided are checked off.
