    I have a Verizon m8, using Verizon messages as the texting app. As the title suggests, I have been receiving duplicate texts. To be more in depth, when I receive a text from someone, a minute or so later I receive another exact copy. Anyone know what's up?

    I'm on Sprint, using the default messaging app. I also get duplicate texts, usually only from the same person but not always. I also use MightyText and maybe that has something to do with it. It's not a huge biggie for me, though.

    It's usually a network thing rather than an app thing, but a good test would be to switch to stock, or some other messaging app, and see whether it continues.

    I would find it weird to be a network problem since it only started when I got the m8 about a month ago. Also it started appearing today as though I've been sending double messages, although none of the recipients have said anything

    Well, phones can play a part, seemingly especially on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint since all the authentication stuff isn't done exclusively by a SIM. Have you tried switching temporarily to stock messaging?

    I have not tried switching as I really enjoy the features of Verizon messaging. Maybe I should though

    I have the same problem, I'm on T-Mobile using the stock app, but I noticed it's only when WiFi is on. Once I turn it off, everything is OK.
