    duplicating messages

    Are you using Handcent? Had that problem initially and someone said to update Handcent to latest version. At the same time I installed a program called "Anti SMS Bomber" hich said it would fight that issue. One time it actually kicked in and said it was eliminating duplicate message. Don't know if it was that or updated Handcent, or something else I don't even know about but haven't had a duplicate now in weeks.

    That is a good idea. Is this app free? I might have to try that out.

    I have had this problem since my OG Droid. I thought it was just the phone so I ignored it, but it followed me to the Droid X2....VZW even sent me another brand new one. The issue still persists despite 5-6 calls to them. The worst so far has been 14 of the same message, but most of the time it is 3-4 duplicates.

    They finally sent a ticket to their network engineers back on 6/17, no word from them since.

    And for those that say i should just get the Anti-SMS bomber....why? I want the issue fixed, not put a bandaid on it.

    Verizon keeps telling me it is either an app I am running or the phone itself. Well, this is the 2nd X2, and I just did a factory reset last night and the only thing I have installed is Pandora. They can't say nothing when it happens again! lol

    IMO it might have something to do with the stock ROM. I get around 5-6 copies of every message with the stock messaging. It's really annoying. I'll try rebooting.

    I get this on my phone too sometimes. I thought it was because I have SyncSMS so I can send SMS messages from my Xoom, guess its not.

    Rebooting does fix it, but its not a permanent fix.

    Rebooting does not fix it. Verizon it's just denying that there is a problem. It is happening to the stock app also, so can't blame handcent.

    I should say it does not fix the problem, just stops them for a while.

    Joined specifically to post in this thread. My phone also likes to receive multiple messages from time to time, with my max of 6 reached today. It also sends messages on reboot to mainly one person, but sometimes multiple. It happened with the stock sms app as well as Handcent, which is currently on the phone. Very annoying.

    We should all start calling Big Red to get it logged.

    I've had my DX2 for almost 2 weeks now and have received multiple duplicate messages, usually 3 or 4 but got 5 dups in about 14 hours yesterday/last night. I think it's a Droid/Verizon issue. Prior to this phone, I had a Samsung Rogue for 20 months and never once received a duplicate SMS.

    My co worker is having similar problems with the Droid X2, Stock apps, with advanced task killer.

    She is sending duplicate messages, not receiving.

    Could it have something to do with any VZW apps like the back up app?
