    I was with at&t for 5 years and never had this problem. It started happening as soon as I switched to verizon.

    Let me clarify, there's no problem that has been ongoing between VZW and AT&T messages. Unless you call AT&T how would you know if there are known issues that might be recent? Or, have you called VZW to see if they can check into it?

    You should talk to a verizon rep or tech issue person about it first.

    There might be a solution or at least an explanation.

    What can it hurt?

    What i mean is, VZWs network might not be sending the message 3 times, Att's might be duplicating it three times...

    I know about this problem! I used to be with AT&T and I also had an iPhone. My wife and I both had issues with AT&T and Verizon when it comes to receiving text messages from Verizon customers. It was a problem with AT&T not Verizon. We called AT&T and they had to do something with re-routing the messages or some sort. I can't remember what they did but around 24 hours later the texts were coming in with no problem.

    Have your friends that are still with AT&T call them and tell them they aren't getting your messages. Again this is an AT&T problem!

    Just FYI I dropped AT&T and now have the Droid and WOULD NEVER GO BACK to that crappy network or that elementary child phone.

    I do know that if your friends are in a weak coverage area this can happen.

    So you may want to ask them. Then again they may not admit it. : )

    but it is an issue on their end.

    Wife and I both have Droids. Out of 10 texts a day between us, 3 are duplicated. Seems like a Verizon issue. I just sent a message to wife on her Droid and she received it 3 times. NEED TO BE FIXED!!
