Default Repeat Text Messages

Backstory: My wife and I both have HTC Vivids.

Both of our phones at times recieve the same text message 2 to 3 times(pretty much immediately...back to back). Its not just when we text each other, but because we talk to each other pretty regularly...it happens most when we're texting each other. Does anyone else have this problem? I have been with ATT for years. It doesn't happen to my daughter(who is using my old inspire). What gives?

Are you using multiple messaging apps or a unified inbox. You may be only receiving the message once, but being notified by multiple apps configured to handle it. You might be able to check the ATT website. On verizon I can go online and see a timestamp for each message sent and received and the to / from.

This kind of similar issue happen after i used "SMS popup", because of system notification and that app give notifications. As well as SMS popup give unread notifications periodically.

thanks!

I'm only using the default sms/mms app that came with the phone...i have tried others in the past, but this one works the best for me.

That was a great idea...i just pulled up my account online, and it only shows one text sent from my wife, and one text recieved by me. my phone displayed that message three times...

I haven't rooted this phone yet, and I don't use any messaging app other than the one that came with the phone....

You should be able to click on each of the notifications you receive open the app is raising it. then you can turn off the notification in the app. I'm into something at work at the moment, so I may be slow to reply, but we'll get it figured out.

thats true, the problem is that its double and triple posting in the same app, even though att is only seeing one iteration. Terribly confused...especially since its not always consistent

OK, the best I've found so far is turning off delivery reports in the messaging app settings. I'm not real confident, but I'd like you to give it a try.

I have this happen sometimes but have never found a fix yet.I think its a network problem myself.You may call your provider and see if they have any suggestions but i doubt it.9 Times out of 10 when it happens to me the other person sending me the message is using an IPhone.
It is a very common problem that needs addressed.

In my hunting around the interwebs, I have seen it on all carriers so I doubt it is a carrier issue. Many reported (as chall80 did above) that the carrier shows only a single message has passed through their servers. I think the issue is with the skinned ROMs (Sense, Touchwiz, Blur) that implement a unified messaging tool or a customized messaging app.

I have seen the iPhone problem, but my understanding is that it uses a different messaging system.

Its really the craziest thing. It never happened on my inspire. I was running Sense 3.0(same as what Vivid runs stock), but i guess its not a fair comparison as the inspire was rooted running a custom ROM. I really wasn't wanting to root the Vivid just yet. I like Sense 3.0...the only advantage to rooting would be to use my mobile hotspot without being charged half a million dollars. I may have to root and see if I can get it to go away.

Just an update. I went to check my wife's phone this morning (HTC Rhyme) to look at the various messaging settings. I let her know as a courtesy and she mentioned that all of her emails and texts were duplicating. I told her to set up an AF account and ask for help. Just kidding. Now its personal, she'll nag me more than you so I'll get it figured out. BTW, were there any Sense updates recently?

I'm not certain on whether or not the Rhyme updated recently. What version of sense is she running. I believe that here in the states, 3.0 is the most recent version. I know that Vivid came with 3.0. I was using a 3.0 ROM on the Inspire that was bulletproof. Its not a new version to say the least. I believe the Runnymede comes with 3.5.

Her emails were duplicating as well? Thats a whole other ball of wax...

its pretty strange...my issue has been going for a couple weeks now, but as soon as I posted about it...i can't get it to duplicate...

The Rhyme has 3.5. I only had my hands on it for a few minutes though and I have only ever used vanilla so I didn't get very far. The email thing is probably related. I did notice that she has a screen with four vertical icons on the left (email, messages, voicemail, and miss calls I think) with a number of each (2 msgs, 10 emails, etc). I'm thinking that that might be the culprit. I'm going to dig into it this weekend and see what I find.

Sense 3.5 came with her phone. It was required for the notification dongle that came with the phone (it is a chick phone).

Catch up through the thread, chall80 and I have been through it and now my wife's phone is having the same problem. It's either a settings thing or a sense thing.

Boy! What happened over there? That discission blew up! One thing I would say for duplicate text messages, charges can rack up if we dont have an unlimited text message plan.... Definitely a fix is on order.

We've determined that messages aren't going through the carrier more than once, so it is either a local bug or setting. Look for a PM

You dont look foolesh. Its good that your issue cleared. I am thinking it must habe something to do with maybe, the text is sent, but maybe behimd the scene gets flagfed as in-queue as if its still pending , and "resends" at the next attempt. But in actuallity, the first did successfully send...just a thought.

Pupkat! Thats a good thing where only one of duplicate text sms gets charged! THats a pleasant relief!

I'm glad your all set. I think your poltergeist just moved on to my wife's phone. I fiddled with every app and setting I could find on it and came up empty.

Pupkat! Thats a good thing where only one of duplicate text sms gets charged! THats a pleasant relief!
No no...its ok, i'm perfectly secure in my foolishness...its a gift really!

The only thing that gets me is the fact that I can't re-create it. I keep trying though...driving the wife crazy. I was working on it while doing cardio at the gym. She says i have too much time on my hands.

My apologies to your wife's phone...

It just bugs me to death to not have a positive resolution. How often is her phone duplicating? Every text? Did you say it was email as well?

Yes, messages and email. Now this morning she said that the last two emails she received did not duplicate, so maybe hers self corrected too. It is frustrating to not be able to say "that's what fixed it."

Too bad I'm on Verizon, that's why I think it's something in Sense.

The Rhyme is getting ICS too, I already have it and it is awesome. I'm not sure how they are going to handle the buttons though as they don't map out to pre ICS buttons any more. The original four (Home, Search, Menu, & Back) have been replace by a three button scheme (Home, Back, Task Switcher) with a menu button only appearing for apps that have not done the ICS compatibility change.

I was ok with my Vivid as delivered, but the more I get weirdo repeat texts, the more I want to root. I wish there was more development for this device, but i'm sure it will pick up...

Chall i cant remember if you mentioned it... (see, when i dont have my daily banana bread, i lose brain cells).. do you have unlimited texts? I wonder does ATT reimburse customers who have to pay per text when reporting they are getting duplicate messages?

I have an HTC Vivid and I'm having the same issue, along with text messages being out of order. Has anyone updated to ICS yet and seen any changes? The update they have on the htc site is for Windows and I have a Mac so I can't update.

Im not sure but mine stopped doing the double text before i updated to ICS.Now that I've updated everythings still running fine with no double text.
Have you tried to update over the air via wifi?That is an option if you want the latest ICS update.

Did you try the method of pinging there server via this method?
Dial *#*#682#*#* in the dialer while on WIFI and see if the update option pops up.Make sure the battery is charged above 50% before trying to update.
If that don't work you could try using virtual pc to run HTC sync on your mac machine long enough to run the update.
Download Virtual PC for Mac - Run Windows on your PPC Mac. MacUpdate.com

There is also VirtualBox

Had a vivid from mid November to mid December. I paid the restocking charge and switched to the skyrocket because I was getting intermittent triplicate or out of order texts. Switched and for the past 3 months I have been having texting issues on the skyrocket. Intermittent issues are duplicate texts and messages I send failing, and some texts people send me never arrive. I am on my third skyrocket and third sim card. Tomorrow is day 5 of my latest case with At&t not being able to figure out issue. I think it has something to do with lte, because I didn't have this issue until switching to the vivid and skyrocket.

I have thought it was the provider all along.I think its due to them updating there towers to 4g and lte services.
