    Every morning, I keep sending people the same SMS message I sent them the other day. Over and over like clockwork.

    How the heck do I stop this? It's annoying all of my contacts.

    It's automatic... it sends the same text every day... starting to really tick me off.

    I've seen that happen a couple times. I just delete the message that keeps getting sent and all is well.

    I love DDoSing all of my contacts, and making them think I'm a freaking weirdo. Great phone. Gonna take this back for the Droid X.

    See I dont get that, I havent had one single glitch or f*ck up on my phone and I got it on release day. I would never say this is a glitchy phone because so few people actually have problems with it, and those who have have gotten replacements.

    With that being said, uninstall/reinstall your messaging app or download a 3rd party one if its the stock one...Handcent is awesome.

    It isn't just an Incredible thing. I've got a friend with an iPhone and it happens. A friend with a Storm 2 and it happens.

    It usually seems to happen to me when the original message is sent from an area where the service is spotty, like the beach. It's almost like the phone thinks it's an undeliverable message and keeps sending it.

    You can customize the way it looks, i always liked the look of the iPhone's sms so i customized it to mimic that, but with a black background and different color bubbles with different fonts

    had this problem with a blackberry at work, we had to pull the battery while the blackberry was on to clear it, pulling while the blackberry was off did not fix the issue, the phone had to be on, coincidentally it was a verizon blackberry...

    Now that I think about it, this happened with my omnia and my buddy had similar issues with TMobile but it resending blank text messages.

    Maybe it has to do with the carrier??

    1) Check for the message in the drafts folder (Menu -> Drafts). If it's there, delete it.
    2) Turn on "Sent Notification" in the Settings menu to see if your phone is registering it as sent every morning.

    I had the same problem and was in a spotty area camping. I had many messages in the listing of unsent messages that I know did actually get sent. People kept telling me that they kept getting the same message over and over. When you are in an area where the signal is on and off, look to see if there is a listing of unsent messages and delete them. Chances are good if there is any service in the area the message went so you can delete them. Even when I came back into my home area and went back out, it continued to send when I was out of the area until I deleted them.
