    Is anyone else having issues with text messages being resent after you reboot the phone? Once I reboot, it will resend the last few messages that I've sent to whoever, sometimes two or three different people. When I look in the conversation thread, the text messages that were resent have actually moved from when they were originally sent to the end of the conversation. It seems like the phone thinks the last few messages were not sent, so it resends them and reorders them in the conversation.

    It's really pissing me off and is kind of annoying for my friends who keep getting duplicate messages. I don't know what to do to keep this from happening. Any thoughts?

    Ok, it's still doing it. I had Delivery Reports enabled on the messaging app but really wasn't getting any reports, so I thought it was resending the messages because of that. But I disabled it and it's still doing it. So I don't know what the problem is. It is really becoming a nuisance.

    Anybody have any ideas or is at least having the same issues?

    I'm glad I saw this thread.

    My original D1 does the same exact thing no app for messaging everything stock not rooted... it really pisses me off! Thought I was alone on this issue.

    Hmmm, idk then. I have D1 and I use Handcent. I used to have this issue, and i thought it was Handcent causing it to do this, and that seemed to be the general consensus around this forum... I wasnt updating Handcent for a long time because all the reviews said the updates were making it worse. Then i got my phone wet and had to get a replacement, so i had to download the latest Handcent. I havent been having that problem anymore... I thought maybe the Dev ironed out the issue finally, but maybe it was my original phone doing it, not Handcent... Interesting

    I just went back to stock from root, all the things the devs can do is amazing. But imo I love my phone stock... I had kangerade and UD BB 0.4 all the big ones they were all great. Just love the droid just the way it was born. :)

    I'm having this problem too... non-rooted Droid x, with AndroSMS installed. I have uninstalled AndroSMS, and installed Handcent instead... We'll see what happens!

    My Handcent is going crazy, resending old messages i have received from people over and over. I dont know what's going on.

    I tried uninstalling it, then reinstalling it. But it still acts up the same. Any help?

    Did anyone find a solution to this? I'm also using SMSPopup.
    Every reboot resends messages.

    Ok, this is getting to be complete bull****! I have been trying to not reboot my phone, however my bluetooth would not enable today so I had to reboot. I tried enabling airplane mode so that it wouldn't send all those texts when it turned back on. I don't know if that made it worse or not but when I re-enabled the cell radio, my phone resent about 80 text messages! 8 0 ! I spent the next half hour apologizing to all my friends for them getting bombarded with old text messages. It's ridiculous and would be nice if they fixed it with a patch, but it better damn well be fixed in 2.2.

    Asked about this over on the DX forum and no one has had it. But glad I found this thread and I am not the only one. Every time I reboot or power up it resends a mess of text messages. The other noght it did well over 100 to several different people. Using the stock messaging app. I am right now waiting for a callback from Moto tech to see what the deal is.
