    I am a current user of the Droid X. Last night it started being weird. I would have no service for a few minutes then it would be fine. About 2 hours later I noticed that in my notifications bar it said I had 1892 text messages. My phone was literally repeating every conversation it has had since I got it in June. It is till continuing to do it and I cannot use text messaging at all.

    Please help

    Even after a battery pull ?

    If so a factory reset is probably in order.

    I have done the battery and memory card pull. However I have not tried contacting Verizon yet.

    I am almost positive that Verizon's answer will be to do a factory reset

    What exactly would the factory reset do? Will I lose everything on my phone?

    Try a factory Reset. then contact verizon if it does not fix the problem.
    A factory reset returns the phone back to stock. All contacts are backed up with Google. you will have to re-download any apps. Though

    Occam's razor

    The simplest answer is often the right one.



    Try going into setting, applications, sms. and clear data and cache for your sms app.

    You will permanently lose all of your sms threads, but everything else will be saved, where if you do a factory reset without trying this first, you'll lose absolutely everything and end up with the phone like it was out of the box.



    Hopefully that works for you.



    Good luck
    Sportster

    Yeah I think you should try this first. Its way less of a pain than to do a whole factory reset.

    Alex, before you do the factory reset, (which as sportster mentioned) will return your phone to how it came out of the box.... try clearing the data and cache in your messaging apps. (ie stock messaging, Handcent, Chomp)

    To do a factory reset - Menu > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset
