    I use chomp sms in which i cant find a don't resend on fail option and and iPhone users messages sometimes arrive delayed i think it is when its a bad signal area but if i restart all of a sudden they pour in . i have a lg g4 which has the issue worse than my droid maxx. Any ideas to fix? I am also on verizon.

    When this happens people get about 9 repeating messages from me even though i only sent one.

    On a separate note i love Verizon's web interface for texting which stays logged in even on reboots on windows. I wish it would work on android chrome.

    I would call vzw and let them know to check towers. Most likely an issue on their end..especially if its happened on 2 separate devices..they could check and see if its your account..but I'd doubt that..wouldn't hurt to check though

    This is my first go-to-fix for most problems (sometimes works and sometimes not)... go into system recovery and clear partition cache. It may clear up the problem.

    I agree, it could be a tower thing. Or a combination tower-phone problem or just the phone or even a problem with the app. Because it happens with his lg g4 but not so with his Maxx makes me wonder if the duplicate/delayed messages might be a problem with the phone. I know before lollipop I had no problems with data or phone reception. After, lollipop it's horrible and it doesn't seem it would be Verizon towers because my son's moto x next to me is getting great reception. Lollipop did something to my reception. Although that hasn't caused problems with sending duplicate texts. That almost seems to me that it could be a problem with the app. It is a puzzle.

    It seems to be a problem with my lg g4 not being able to get a reliable connection to verizons apn which i am checking with an escalated verizon ticket i even tried android safe mode withem and had same issue. Safe mode is when you hit power button then hold the power option and it asks if you want to restart in safe mode similiar to windows safe mode

    Sorry to hear you're having problems with your new G4 @SMYDSMITH ! That must be frustrating to say the least. Good luck with a resolution and post your results once Verizon gets back to you.

    I talked with verizon and they said even though i tried safe mode and clean wiped my phone that Verizon and Google backups might be bringing back old apps that cause the issue. I don't buy it as issue happens in safe mode Still following up with them ...
