    After last weeks VZW update to the Razor/Maxx - Now with either GoSMS or ChompSMS, I am receiving two identical texts. If I delete 3rd party SMS app, no problems. This tells me that this has something to do with the update when using 3rd party apps for SMS.
    Anyone else have this issue with the new update and a 3rd party SMS app?

    I've been getting double. Texts from time to time since I got the maxx. I believe its a network issue. It doesn't happen that often for me. I'll be watching to see what you find out on this thread, could be interesting.

    I have even tried as some other forums say - remove 3rd party apps, clear cache, clear data, reboot, none of these work, I am still getting double text messages.

    I don't have any of those things on my phones and both of my maxx's and my bionic get duplicate text messages from time to time. So that's not it. Even happens in safe mode. So I have to guess network.

    I could be wrong.... its happened before. Lol :)

    Have you turned off the notifications in the stock app? Open the app then tap menu > settings > notifications and uncheck the notification box.

    Yeah my wife and I use GoSMS and the other day she was sending one message and I was getting it five times every once and awhile. It has sense stopped, but some times we do get double messages. Not sure if it is network or GoSMS, but I texted my friend on T-Mobile and he said he was getting double from me too the other night.

    Yes I have. It is not a double notification issue, it is a double text issue, however; yes, I have the stock notifications turned off.

    I was having this happen to me since the update as well, I am using GO SMS PRO and I was getting about 5-10 of the same text from my friend, but only him. He has a iphone but I don't think that is the reason. It has gotten better the past week sometimes I only get 2 repeats now. I think GO SMS PRO needs to push out an update to fix it.

    It happens, sometimes it is the other peoples phones as well.

    Usually a re-boot on both ends helps if it is driving you crazy, sometimes it is network/location (ie. inside a concrete building)

    If anything I have noticed a bit less since the update.

    That would drive me nuts.. I am using Handcent and everything is fine (knock on wood)

    Hope it gets worked out.

    Yeah happened to me again yesterday from my wife, I got about six of the same text she only sent once. I got another text from a guy three times for the same one and he does not use GoSMS and he is not on Verizon, so it is either the network or GoSMS.

    I don't use GoSMS or any other app for SMS and it happens to me and my wife, on our razr maxx's and the bionic, so i believe its a network issue.

    Well it sucks that it happens, but makes me feel better knowing it is the network and not my phone.

    Most of the time a re-boot will stop it for me. Power off / power on that is.

    I was using GoSms & loving it then started getting duplicate texts. Switched to Handscent and same thing. Uninstalled all 3rd party apps & still got duplicates with the stock app. Did the reboot thing 3 times and so far no more duplicates with the stock app. Haven't tried any of th 3 rd party apps since.

    Just tried the updated ChompSMS also, both Go SMS and ChompSMS give me double texts, when these are removed from the phone, the default texting works perfect. It just started with the VZW update, this update is not playing well with third party SMS apps on my phone. Decided just to wait for ICS, which might be here around the 21 of May - per the leaks.....

    I agree that it is linked to a network issue. It happens with GoSMS, Handsent, and ChompSMS. It seems to happen the least if you are just using the native app. I have discovered that it happens more often when the phone is switching between 3g and 4g. Rebooting will make the issue go a way for a while. It only seems to affect the 4G phones Verizon phones?

    When I had Go SMS loaded and started getting the duplicates I sent an email to the developers asking for a fix. I didn't get a response and was fed up with the duplicates, so uninstalled Go to try Handcent which I also uninstalled. Yesterday I got a response from Go with an update to download and try. I installed Go again and downloaded the update. So far the update seems to work, no more duplicates. Thanks Go!

    If the text look like this VZWNMN: 1 2, etc then they are from Verizon's backup assistant and part of the new sync and connect service . You need to log into your account and Disable this feature. I feel like it's a huge security threat and not needed
