    hey, so im sorry if this has been covered before, but i didnt find a solution to this multiple text msg problem anywhere. so i decided to do a little experiment of my own.
    i am on cm7.2 7-28-11 on metro pcs. i always get double text messages from ANYONE who sends me a text. so i tried out a couple things and i found one that makes it stop for good.
    i first downloaded go sms pro. then i went to applications, went to messenger, cleared data. then went to the msg app and disabled auto retrive and notifications, thhen i went back to applications setting and went to messenger and pressed force stop. after that do not open up stock messenger app. then i went to go sms pro and there is a setting that says enable notification, check it and your all set.
    ever since that i NEVER got a double text or sent a doulbe text, AND go sms pro just looks even better.

    hope that helps, leave feedback plz.

    Had the same problem...Installed latest version of GOSMS, and the problem seemed to resolve itself. Now if i can just figure out why in my contacts even though i can choose custom ringtones, it still uses the default...

    ok found another answer. today i called metropcs from my phone, *611
    talked to customer service. told them that my phone keeps getting and sending double messages. they said they had an update to their "towers" and a lot of ppl have been complaining about that. all they do is refresh your phones signal. and WAHLAH! no more double texts.

    IN SHORT: dial *611, talk to customer service, ask them to refresh signal.
    METRO ONLY, prolly cud do for cricket too
