    I got a new Droid and manually input some contacts into my phone. I synced my phone with Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, and Gmail. Now I receive duplicate text messages from the contacts I manually inputted. I use Handcent and I made sure my default messaging was turned off and I also turned off auto-retrieve.

    There are not duplicate contact entries of the numbers I originally inut into my phone. I tried exporting my contacts to my SD card then importing them after deleting the contacts on my phone and that didn't work. I also tried exporting and importing my contacts from Gmail but that didn't work either.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    First we need to fix the post. ;)

    I have heard that duplicate contacts can happen from facebook. Have you tried going on to gmail on line into your contacts and merge your duplicate contacts. It's a bit time consuming if you have a lot of them but it will solve this issue.

    There aren't any duplicate contacts in my Gmail account and none on my phone either. I get two texts from the same contact. The first text has their response and their callback the number and the second text has the same response without a callback number.

    I have tried exporting my contacts to my SD, then delting my contacts from my phone, and then importing my contacts back to my phone but that didn't work.

    I also backed up my contacts in Gmail, deleted the contacts in my phone, and then imported my contacts back to Gmail and synched it with my phone but that also didn't work.
