    Is anyone else having this problem? It's not that I have two different text programs working--I disabled notifications from the stock app and just use Handcent. But sometimes I'll receive the same text message 2, 3, or 4 times. Any ideas?

    I don't know if this is still an issue but if you're receiving the text from someone who is using Google Voice in landscape that was causing multiple text to go out. That's the only thing I know of that does that.

    I wish Handcent would add an option to auto delete repeat text messages. I have a few friends that I receive SMS in triplicate from almost half the time so it's frustrating.

    i wanna say this is not completely the phone (droid) problem... i think its a verizon network problem.
    Over my last 3 phones... 2 being normal phones and now the droid. on some occasions i will get messages from my friends saying dude why the hell are you sending me the same text like 3 times. i reply dude not me lol. yell at network or something. and these friends have been from both verizon and non verizon networks.
    I have also had the same thing happen to me but rarely. where i get multi texts from friends.

    I don't have Handsent and this has happened to me a couple times (received multiples) they only happened from my sister (verizon (family plan)) and from my girlfriend (still on Alltel, I think, could be Verizon)...other than that, there is no rhyme or reason to it, that I can tell... happened only a handful of times, out of the many times we text each other.

    It happens to me more than that. I'd say 50 percent of the time.

    For the record, I used to use handcent and I got double texts probably about 75% of the time. With the stock app, I get double texts maybe 5% of the time. So while it also occasionally happens in the stock app, it has always been MUCH WORSE for me in handcent.

    i reset the phone and it stopped. since then i have had one instance of double text. i also switched to handcent somewhere around the 1st or 2nd

    I've only experienced this problem with one person, I don't recall their carrier, some obscure company in AL. I've not had this issue with any of the main stream carriers.
