I have been with ATT for years. It doesn't happen to my daughter(who is using my old inspire). What gives?
Ok... so I was in the search for a solution to this issue when I stumbled upon this thread. It looks like you guy's are hard at work trying to figure this out, as I would also like to find a fix for it.
The issue I've found so far is that our devices are not sending back a "received" message to the tower that the text messages was sent from. Usually what happens is someone sends us a text message & when our phone gets it it'll send a small message back to the tower saying it received it, otherwise the tower will keep sending the message it thinks you have received it. This is why you only see one text message on your at&t account, but (in my case) up to 14 copies of the same message.
I rooted and flashed my HTC Vivid hoping that this would solve the problem, but it has not. I'm really starting to think it's a hardware issue unless you guy's can figure out where to look to edit a setting that might effect this in the ROM.
