    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?
