    Hey everyone,

    So yesterday I noticed that I would occasionally receive multiples of the same text message. It started out only being once or twice, but it has increased in frequency. Today, I reset my phone with Odin3 and installed SRE 1.2.2a. Also, I added the lag fix. Unfortunately after ressetting, I am still experiencing the same problem. I thought it was an issue with handcent, so I switched to chompSMS and the same thing is happening. Most recently, I have received the same text message 7 times, and it was originally sent an hour ago. The odd thing is that each copy that is sent to me shows the ORIGINAL send time, so its something on my end that is going wrong.

    For the record I have notifications only turned on for one SMS client at a time, so thats not an issue. i have toyed around with my sms settings and everything but for some reason I still am getting this problem. anyone have any help?



    UPDATE: Texted myself 30 minutes ago and have gotten 4 repeat messages since then....wtf?

    I would call AT&T. Most likely something isn't registering with their system that your device has received the text and continues to keep it as new and your phone thinks it's a new message.

    This happened to me and a friend a couple years ago on AT&T. It eventually worked itself out over a week, but when you'd get a dozen-plus text messages of all the same message sent to you over the next 24 hours, it got annoying as hell.

    any resolution to this yet? I have been receiving texts between 4 and 30! times of the same text.... is it the carrier (ATT)? Several people have reported rec'ing my text replies several times as well. Have uninstalled Handcent SMS as well as completely wiped the phone as well, no change.
