    Anyone else getting this? I get messages on time, but then receive the same message again a few hours later.

    This sounds like it may be a problem with your carrier rather than your handset or Handcent.

    I had a spate of this with Vodafone for awhile and in the end I contacted their customer department and it stopped.

    Hope this helps.

    Do you know what they did to stop it?

    They sent me a new SIM card but I don't know what they did, if anything, their end.

    There have been instances of certain handsets, i.e. the Samsung Galaxy Europa, where this has been happening. See here:-

    receiving duplicate texts - Vodafone eForum

    Another thought that occurs to me is that you should ensure that all your stock messaging (the messaging app that came with the phone) settings are disabled.
