    Periodically I get my text messaged duplicated. The same message comes in 2 times, usually at the same time. Does anyone else have this? Is it a known issue?

    Same here - I will get duplicate SMS messages every once in a while. I have also been told I am sending duplicates on occasion.

    I think this happens when an SMS is incoming and outgoing at the exact same time (which can occur during a busy conversation) - since you can't send and receive simultaneously the OS appears to attempt to reprocess the message that didn't receive priority - and appears to end up duplicating the message somehow. Maybe it queues it and then "resends" it - thus duplicating??

    I don't know - simply a guess based on an observation that I seem to get duplicates when I am told my delivery failed "would you like to retry sending".

    I had it happen but only on messages text messages from NYAlert (all other sources were/are fine). NYAlert insists they're not sending duplicates.

    Ultimately I resolved the issue by configuring NYAlert to send me email notifications (which have more detail anyway) instead of text messages. Thanks to Gmail push notification, this is as good as text for quick pokes ;)

    The only time I recieve double messages are when they are sent from an email account. Like at work our supervisors send out emails to go to our alpha pagers, but I reconfigured mine just to send it to my phone because I hate to wear my pager on my day off.

    I get two when my wife sends me a text. One shows up as coming from the contact name I set in my phone, and the other comes as her phone number. But when I go and look at my history it only shows the the threads with her contact name. It's strange when I look and it says I have multiple texts only to have one as a dup, but at least it isn't saving both.

    I have constant issues with sending duplicates. I seem to send the same text twice (immediately) almost 25% of the time. Doesn't depend on ROM either.

    I'm assuming this is a verizon thing?

    Also, just had one come in THREE times (all at once) from my girlfriend who has a 5 year old flip phone.

    whaaaaaaaaaaa......?
