    Default Double text messages received

    I switched my default text app to Handcent and I also use hide it pro.

    Now whenever I get a text message on hide it pro I receive it twice.

    How can I stop this from occurring?

    Do you get them both on the same app or one for each app? If it's the latter, just disable or uninstall the app

    Do you not receive them on Handcent at all? In your OP you said that was your new default messaging app

    Yeah it shows up in Handcent but I don't want those main contacts showing up so I blacklisted them but I still get 2 even before blacklisting

    not sure what you mean by "main contacts" and blacklisting in reference to these dup posts, but back to your original question - are you getting one message from handcent and the other from hide it pro? Or are you getting two messages from Hide it pro? or are you getting three messages - 2 from hide it pro and one from handcent?

    (What does Hide It pro do with sms?)

    I didn't check my blacklist is what I meant. I'm getting a total of 3 texts now that I looked at it

    1 in handcent and 2 in HIP

    Sound like an issue with Hide It Pro - you may want to reach out to the developer using the link at google play.

    On Kitkat, you can assign any texting app as the default messaging app. I suspect you have handcent registered as the default messaging app. (settings/wireless and networks - more, default sms app). If so, handcent is correctly displaying the message. Maybe hide it pro has an option to disable SMS notifications - dunno. You may want to check the app settings - or contact the developer.

    Occasionally I get double texts from people in Hangouts. I think it's a network bug because I would occasionally get the same thing on my SII as well.

    I am leaving Sprint for exactly this reason- dozens of duplicate messages randomly over the last YEAR. I am tired of screaming at Sprint about it and them doing NOTHING but lying to me about it. Probably a bad tower or network issue (it is not my phone). 15 year customer, beyond pissed; and taking probably a dozen other accounts with me right when Sprint just finally got some reasonable speed. On Saturday I am activating this new Nexus 5 on T-Mobile that I got just a few days ago.

    I'm on AT&T. Networks are huge complicated beasts, so I'm not surprised there are bugs here and there. The only network issue that makes me angry is when friends on other carriers have problems getting my texts. That means two of my friends get maybe 1/100 texts I send them.

    I didn't mention the constant issues with lost messages and message deliver errors and the most fun- delayed messages that can take from 5 minutes to 5 hours to finally come to me on Sprint. And when the start duplicating, I could get 20 or more of the same message, over and over, for hours and hours.

    I am not talking about a duplicate or a failed delivery every now and then, I had been having constant issues and for over an entire year. I can understand temporary network issues when they were switching to LTE, but that was over about 3/4 of a year ago.

    Not sure if you ever got an answer to this but I finally got mine to stop.

    Here's what I did:
    Go into HIP (log in with your passcode, etc) then go into messages. From there, tap the settings icon in the top right, go to advanced then uncheck "third party SMS app" and it should stop showing duplicates!

    What phone are you using.... On another forum, I found that many of the issues are with Kyocera. . . My phone the torque is reviewed as "close to stock android" well we know sprint made them do a few changes.

    Anyway, my issue had two actual messages. it seems that SMS in android is kept in its own database that all SMS apps access. Thus, I could see both messages in both apps. If i read it in one, it marked it as read in the other.

    Last I tried, was a year ago. I would try it again, but back then, for me deleting the 3rd party app didn't fix the issue, I had to restore the phone to stock, and it takes too long to customize.

    IF THESE THINGS SEEM TO STILL Be going on this year, I am not just going to "try it"

    p.s. what is HIP?

    Just as a followup to my above posting. I have been on T-Mobile now for 8 months now. Not a single lost, out-of-order, delayed, or repeated text message. It has been nice.
