    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

    I'm searching now. I'm seeing a lot of frustration, but no solutions yet:(. Bear with me.:D

    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.:mad: I told her to set up an AF account and ask for help:D. Just kidding:p. 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:eek: 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.

    well its good to know that some people are getting the latest software! Lol:D I'm still trying to figure this out on my end too...hopefully i'll get somewhere soon. My wife is getting irritated with me asking her to text all the time...

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

    ah...like the HTC bliss

    edit: they should make a guy based phone...one attached to an automatic weapon or fishing pole...

    Wow, I wish I knew what the solution would be. I have ATT but never get duplicate text messages except from one friend who messages delivers twice all the time. Hes got tmo.

    Oh no, Rico's here. Now it will really turn into a megathread. Hey, I just posted and interesting link in the data throttling thread you have about AT&T.

    Lol....i was just "picking on Dark Jedi"...bit some of it I do feel is not customer friendly.

    Regarding txt duplicating. Is there a setting that could cause duplicate texts?

    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.
