    Every once and a while either when I send a text it will double it, or when I get one, I'll get two. I don't use that handsent program. This is all though the native messaging in the Droid. It happens about once or twice a day. Not every time. But I don't have a large messaging plan, so I would like to get it stopped.

    I have the same problem and i also do not have any 3rd party text messaging app installed.

    I just found out that some of my text messages are coming in late... so far I know one has come in about 2 hours late. I'm suspecting it is verizon which is a huge disappointment. Maybe verizon is turning into the next at&t where the droid is too popular of a phone and overloading their system?

    Repeat messages

    I'm using Handcent and also am getting repeated SMS messages. Anyone have a clue what's going on? I'm on a limited text plan, so I'm hoping these aren't "real" duplicates.

    Beyond that, it's very annoying with all the notifications I get... 2x for Handcent, and 2x for Messaging!

    I too am getting this, and I'm really sorry for the necro bump, but it's getting annoying.

    Apparently there is no fix I guess. I as well have Handcent and ruled that out by uninstalling it and setting the original SMS to defaults and I randomly get double text's every day. I probably get 60-70 percent of (incoming only) duplicate text's.

    The only idea I may have is.... Are we all having this issue because we rooted our phones and maybe it's an isue with our ROM? I use SS 4.8

    Not rooted

    My phone is not rooted. I got a Droid2 as a warranty replacement for a D1. Haven't had the same issue with the D2... until about a week ago, when it started on my D2. I have never installed handcent on this phone.

    I'm getting the problem with duplicate recieved messages, then sometimes my phone doesn't send a message, then if I turn it off, when I turn it back on, it sends these unsent messages and I get some 'WTF' texts in response. I'm rooted and using handscent.

    I was having this problem a few months ago with my windows phone on Verizon as were my friends with their palms. I believe this is a Verizon problem and not a handset problem. I have not talked to my Verizon rep about this yet, I keep forgetting when I see her.

    on the droid from verizon, using handsent, not rooted, have been getting double messages now for about 3 weeks, all of the messages I get are doubles, some are triples and one I got it 4 times. It is really annoying. I agree I think it is verizon's system.
    has anyone heard from Verizon?

    i talked to them cause my phone was doing the same and they reset something in my phone when my battery was out and said that should fix it, and it did for like a day and then did it again...it sucks and does get very annoying..luckily i do have a unlimited plan but it still is very annoying...they also told me if that didnt work that they would send a report to verizon techs for the network, and there was nothing else they could do

    The reason why you guys are receiving duplicate text messages is because you have duplicate messaging services running at the same time. (The default messenger and Handsent.) Go to menu, applications, find your phone default messenger stop the process, and uncheck any notification boxes for other messengers you don't want to use.

    Also this may be the case.. by going into Handcent ->menu->settings->application settings->default messaging application - and chose "ALL(SMS &MMS)".
