    I get a lot of people telling me when I text them it usually sends them a double message. It doesn't happen every text but it happens quite frequently.

    There are also times where it can send them the same message up to five times!

    What I've tried to do is restart my phone after someone complains about it to see if it helps, it really doesn't but I can't think of anything else to do...

    I guess what I'm asking is if anyone else has the same problem and what they think/know helps... if they even have a solution.

    Oh and by the way I'm pretty sure it was doing this before the update.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ott

    happened to me at least 3 different times today... I would also get spammed quite a bit from other friends on verizon when they would hit me up on my iPhone however, not any other providers.

    kinda annoying....

    Is this the stock app or a 3rd party one?

    i use handcent and never had a problem with double messages, or messages not being sent.

    I'm having this issue as well... both with sending and receiving I occasionally get multiples. I believe it's a Verizon issue not Droid specific.... I could be wrong tho...

    I use Handcent too, but even with the stock one it would spam messages.

    I hope it is Verizons problem lol. And they get it fixed :p

    usually these types of things are a network issue, not a software/hardware issue. Even when i was on AT&T i would receive doubles and a couple times send doubles of the same text.

    i receive double of the same text from Sprint especially.
