    I have been getting double text messages on almost every single txt that I receive while using jrummys koush rom. Anyone know why this would be happening? Its pretty annoying lol. I am using handcent if this helps.

    I would not think that the rom would cause that particular problem but I'm not positive. I use Handcent and have not have any duplicates.

    I havent had this problem on blackdroid or bugless beast so thats why I put the rom i was using in the op. If i cant figure this out ill probably just switch back to blackdroid, though ill miss the 3d app drawer.

    On that note is it possible to install the 3d app drawer from koush's rom to anyone elses rom?

    Go here and use the instructions posted under the screenshots. I would suggest using the instructions to use it as a /system app. Not from the Market. Just download it and follow the directions for the adb commands

    I have had this same stupid proble and it is so annoying! I have used most of the roms at one point and have had it with all of them. I thought it was maybe my phone at one point but I just got a warranty replacement and am still having the double text issue.

    Anyone know why this is happening?

    Blackdroids new v8 comes with a 3D launcher2 and the Helix Launcher2 works as well. It is really stable and I'm kinda impressed. Normally, I piece together other peoples stuff for my own use, but with this new v8 I didn't do very many modifications.

    Just trying to bump this thread again, I still get double txt messages even though I have re downloaded handcent and now am using Blackdroid 8.0 (previously using koush's rom). It is quite irritating, so any ideas would be very helpful.

    I'm a heavy texter, and this happens to me ALL the time. It has happened on every single rom I've used including the rom from the factory.

    Pretty sure it is a network issue with verizon. They are probably sending the text twice.

    This was a handcent problem for me. Switched to ChompSMS and haven't gotten a double text since.

    Yeah, it's a handcent bug, not the rom. Get rid of handcent and you shouldn't have the problem anymore. Or fix your messenger settings. Kind of funny that someone used a warranty for this problem and ended up with the same thing again.

    If you go to messages and settings and turn off notications you shouldnt get double messages anymore. Just turn on notifcations for the app you want to use.

    I use Handcent on Sg 6.0.1 works just fine it also worked just fine on Droidmod 1.0

    It's not a notification issue, it's a message issue.

    Ya it is a Handcent issue because the default messanger is only getting one txt message while handcent is getting two sometimes three. Is there any other txt apps that split messages at 160 characters like handcent does? Its literally the only reason I use handcent.

    I don't think ChompSMS does it unless I am missing it in the settings somewhere.

    Ya I really like how handcent splits the txts over 160 and how it has an android theme for the messages, I hate the iphone style bubble messaging it looks childish to me. Grrrrr I hate this
