    Gf has the bionic, starting tonight all the texts she gets keep coming in, as many as ten times. She does use handcent app, as do I without any issues. Anyone else seen this happen?

    Apparently this is not the only thing. Screen freezing up, then going back to lock screen a second later.

    I know they are rare, but she's concerned a friend with a blackberry that has this same issue dropped a virus on her. Without data being transferred, I just can't see this happening through a text.

    I use handcent....I get multiples more than I don't. Its frustrating but I figured it was just life. Don't know why though. Has been like this for a few months now. Happens from everyone I texts almost. Some may be two...other up to five multiples....weird.

    Try factory resetting it, this deletes every thing in the phone and puts it to pure stock

    For those of you that use handcent, did you disable notifications in the stock messaging app?

    i use Handcent and also get a double or triple message from time to time. and yes i did disable notifications in stock messaging app. the only thing i can figure is since it only happens at work, and the signal there isnt the greatest, maybe when the signal is at its worst handcent will double up the messages to ensure i dont miss them.

    That's crazy, I've used handcent for over 1 1/2 years and never had that problem on my D1 or bionic. I thought maybe you were getting a double notification but it's actually multiple duplicate messages within the same app?

    yes, same message 2, 3 or sometimes 4 times until i moved to where the signal is better, then it would stop. i used to have Handcent on my OG Droid, and never had this happen. must be something between the Bionic and Handcent. actually i just checked the stock messaging app and the same duplicate messages are there as well, so it cant be Handcent :blink:

    Yes I use handcent and yes I disabled stock, I think its a signal thing myself,,either way it doesn't happen all the time and it really don't bother me.
