Default Double Text Messages Received

Has anyone been getting a lot of double texts messages from your contacts? It doesn't really matter because Cricket has unlimited text messages but it is a tad annoying.

Hi La Sal! This is a known problem that has to do with the carrier. They have acknowledge it and that they are working on the problem.

Hasn't happened to me yet (cross my fingers). You might want to try the Handcent or GO SMS app and see it that helps.

Also, clear your call log and cache.

Good luck!

I always clear my cache and call log. I'll have to take a look at the two apps you recommended. Thanks.

Just downloaded the Handcent app. I'll have to recommend this free app for my wife's Samsung Epic. I think she will like the format they use.

I'm not using handcent anymore since it was creating some probs for me so I can't help much there but I'm sure it is in the settings somewhere. Sorry for such a lame answer. Tell her to try GO SMS.

Trying Go SMS to see if it helps with the double messages.

I never get double text messages here in my home area, but last weekend out of town I got several. Now things are back to normal. Maybe it could have something to do with the towers where you get your signals. Just a thought.

I have been having problems with multiple texts since I bought my Ascend with Cricket. It is extremely annoying!
I don't get just double but sometimes 3 or 4 repeats. Most of the time they come within in 2 seconds of each other. Sometimes they are a few minuets apart. It doesn't mater were I'm at, home, work, 50 miles away. I would like to use the pop-up feature of Handcent but the double sms screws it up...

Does anyone have a solution?

I am using Handcent and love it, but will switch if another sms app fixes it.

Go SMS has eliminated all double text messages for me except when Cricket sends their spam texts.

La Sal, I've been trying to fix this problem on my Cricket Ascend for quite a while now, and it's gotten to be extremely annoying.

I just got Go SMS and have been playing around with the settings but still can't figure out a way to stop the double messages.

Do you need to uninstall the stock messaging app? Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing in goSMS that fixes this?

All I had to do was install goSMS and the double text messages stopped. I didn't need to adjust the settings or uninstall the stock messaging.

I am sorry that it hasn't worked for you.

I too experienced the double texts on my Cricket Phone (Ascend). it happened with me on both the stock messaging platform, as well as when i use handcent. i recently flashed Icarus 1.1 and this eliminated the problem thus far

That's a known problem with the service. It's never happened to me but once and I dialed *228 and it hasn't happened since then. I think that could be the only chance you have.

Default Double( Triple?) Text Messages

This has been a problem ever since I tried third party apps, I installed cm6, and kept the stock app as default. I still receive double messages, but my phone doesn't send them anymore( boy was my girlfriend annoyed!) . I can still get mms in all it's glory, but wish I could delete the stock app, but it's part of android. The other apps work off of the stock app, and that's part of the reason I don't use them, it makes the situation worse.

You CAN delete stock apps.. but it requires rooting.

"Flashing" is kind of a hacker term for Android users that refers to installing things on the phone that you aren't technically supposed to have. If you aren't wanting to hack your phone, don't worry about flashing. You'll never encounter it running stock stuff.

Default Deleting stock apps

No ,you should not delete stock apps, bloatware, yes, stock apps, no. Anything google, or with the extension .com, plus some others, are android system files. If you do that, you will screw your system. Most apps that you download, work off of those files, messaging is one of them, tried to see for myself, by freezing it, then used a diffrent messaging app, that app didn't work until I unfroze messaging again. I've been rooted, and have been using cm6, for over 3 months, look at forums, there are many examples of people deleting stock apps, then running into trouble when they do.

Default Cricket double, triple text

The developers of these messaging apps, use the stock app to work, without it, they can't. A lot of problems arise from both apps, working at same time. I also hear about problems with cricket, they don't have their act together either, didn't do enough homework on smartphone operations

Here's how I solved it. It'll still happen occasionally but you need to download go SMS, go to ur old messaging app n go to settings n turn off notifications an turn on notifications in go SMS. Problem solved
