    Duplicate Text Messages--every time

    About a week ago, I started receiving duplicates of EVERY incoming text message on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. This is happening both in the native messaging app, and in handcent.

    I've had the phone since November, the problem of receiving duplicate text messages just started.

    This is incredibly annoying. Does anyone know of a solution?

    Help!

    Are you stock or rooted? If stock I would say it may just be a network problem and you could either wait it out in annoyance or factory reset. Rooted, you could try reflashing the rom you are on or flash a different rom and see if it fixes the issue. Good luck man.

    I am stock.... I was hoping to avoid a factory reset, but if I can't find another solution I will try that

    First thing i would do it refresh the notification settings in the stock app. Just uncheck and then recheck the box and give it a shot. That usually fixes that issue. If that doesn't do it then power off your phone and back on before you do a factory reset.

    Good call. Maybe even could try going into settings/app/messaging and clearing cache and data for the messaging app. Couldn't hurt

    Thanks Husker and atrey... I tried the advice from both of you and neither worked. HOWEVER, I then uninstalled handcent and powered off the phone, and since powering back on, the problem has disappeared (using the stock messaging app). So maybe it was a handcent issue after all... I've since installed Go SMS Pro and after a few tests, no problems.

    If the problem does not return, I will just stick with Go SMS Pro and forget about handcent, it seems to be a very comparable app

    I am leaning towards a network glitch if it was just a power off fix. Well glad your rolling again man.

    I have had this same problem on my Bionic since I purchased it back in October. The frequency of double messages started to taped off and then randomly one day they stopped all together. Now, all of-the-sudden I am sporadically getting them again.

    Rooted or u-rooted, I've not seen a difference the the frequency of the double messages, and others on my wireless plan, with the same device are not having the same issues.
    I know nothing about codes or firmware, but it sounds to me like it may be device and device provider specific.

    I power off the phone almost every night, so it had been powered off a bunch of times without fixing this problem... in any case, I'm glad the problem is gone (at least for the moment, keeping my fingers crossed).

    Handcent or Go - The Problem Will Remain

    I've been following several threads for months and have tried every technique. Don't bother to do a factory reset, as it will solve the problem for a few days, and then it returns. This must be a Verizon system issue. I cannot explain the behavior. All the suggestions above are valid, but if the same problems are occurring with Handcent AND Go, there is obviously more at work here.

    This is such a pain for those that do a lot of messaging. Good luck!!
