    Does anyone else also have this problem? I'll receive multiple copies of the same text messages. Usually occurs in a row. It doesn't affect the function of the phone but it definitely is an annoyance.

    Does this happen all the time or only sometimes?

    When this happens, is it with certain persons? What device(s) and what carrier(s) do these people have? Do you have the same carrier?

    It happens occasionally. Not every text message gets duplicated, however it does happen at least once a day. I just checked some old text messages and it occurs with more than just one contact. It happens all the time when im texting my GF (she has a galaxy s3 on verizon) and i also noticed it with a friend from school (iphone 5, not sure of the carrier) as well as with my sister ( iphone on verizon).

    I have a lumia 822 on verizon. this has been going on for some time now, i just recently thought to look on these forums for a solution.

    I have this problem with my HTC 8x. It seems to be a real problem with picture texts. 99% of the time I get a duplicate text of a pic.....sometimes days later. I'm with Bell

    It's the way Windows Phone handles poor connectivity. Happens to me occasionally when I have 2 or less bars.

    i was thinking this might be an issue related to it. It seems to happen only when i'm at my house where i have horrible reception. when i'm someplace else i do not tend to notice it, although i'll have to be more aware and actively looking for it now

    I've never had that happen, but so far I've never been anywhere with less than 3 bars signal.

    Yep I've had this issue at my house (or anywhere with poor connectivity) since I got my Trophy on release date. Also happens to both my parents when they are in poor connectivity areas. And it affects both you (with incoming and outgoing texts) and the person you text (just their incoming texts from you).

    ps: when it says "message failed to send, try again", 99% of the time it actually did send.(unless of course you literally have NO service at all) Every time you hit "try again" you are sending another message to that person.

    Was your last phone an Iphone? and did you turn off Imessage before you switched? There used to be a bug, that would duplicate any text you received from other Iphone users if Imessage was not turned off before the phone was deactivated.

    It may just be a bug in the way they programmed for CDMA.

    I had the same issue with my Trophy and as Berty said it was a poor connection issue. I ended up isolating the problem after hunting through my message history to see if there was a pattern/logic to the duplicate messages. It definitely appeared to be resent messages that I kept saying "try again" which for whatever reason hung up in the system and then resent days later. It was amusing after the fact.

    Yeah, I don't think it is an issue with your phone... Just your coverage or lack there of... My wife and I sometimes noticed double txt messages evey once in a while when we were on iOS and now WP.

    I had this problem with my HTC Arrive and I chalked it up to Sprint having terrible service. Now I have the 1020 with AT&T and I still have the problem, although it's less frequent. It doesn't seem to matter which carrier or OS. I have people tell me that they get duplicate texts from me and I get duplicate texts from other people. Usually it seems to be just two of the same. I was thinking about calling AT&T and asking them about it but I wanted to check here first. Has anyone heard of a solution to this?
