Keep receiving duplicate text messages
Hi, ever since I started using my phone to text my current girlfriend (so for about 2 months now) I'd receive the odd duplicate text from her... or sometimes I don't get the text at all when she sends it and it'll randomly be sent to me later after anything from a minute to several minutes. I used to think it was just her phone or sim card playing up because she has a crappy old phone and I figured either that or her sim card were playing up seen as I'd never had this problem with anyone else and it wasn't very frequent.
However, yesterday (evening to be precise, so a few hours ago for me atm) I started to get A LOT of duplicates from her of 2 or 3 of her texts and I didn't get about 4 of them until a random time after she'd actually sent them, like 10-20 mins later. But what was even weirder is that it suddenly happened to me with another friend who it'd never been a problem with before. It sent duplicates of like 2 of his texts and he says he only sent it once and it only appeared once for him. He has an android device a lot newer than my girlfriend's phone so I don't think it's her phone's fault anymore.
I'm starting to think this has got to be a problem with my phone or network but it has only affected texts from my girlfriend previously and now this one off with a mate.
It's getting really annoying and I don't want it to get worse. Has anyone had any similar problems with this phone or do you think it could just be a network issue? But then why doesn't it occur with everyone else who texts me?
I tried turning my phone off for a while and back on again and that just made it worse temporarily... for about 5 mins I received about 6 or 7 duplicates and those 4 messages which I earlier said I didn't initially receive :/ It's stopped for now :|
