    Default Same text message keeps popping up in the notifications?

    Every time I get a text, in my notification it says I have 2 messages.

    Now this started happening after my friend sent me a text while I was trying to delete all the text convos. And its always that same text he sent me that keeps on popping up. Like whenever I delete a text message, that text shows up again on my notifcations but when I go into messages, its not there.

    I deleted every text but It's still showing up! Anyone else run into a problem like this?

    I hate how glitchy the message app is on this phone. Any input on how to fix this would be appreciated.

    Have you looked in Drafts to see if possibly it is in there? Just tossing out ideas...

    I don't use the stock messaging app 'cos it's pretty darn frustrating, I turned off notifications for it and use the Handcent SMS app.

    Give it a whirl and see if you like it, it's pretty customizable too. Since people rarely call me, I got the whole 'different ringtones for different people' setup for texting.

    It wouldn't be in drafts because its not a message I'm sending out, its a text that I received.

    I might have to try it out.

    Maybe its just my phone? My messaging program is glitchy for sure. Sometimes when I click on a message, it opens up the wrong message. I've had this happen several times and I would accidentally send a text to the wrong person. Its very frustrating.

    I checked my folders, deleted every message and draft. This text just won't stop appearing on my notification.

    I had the same issue. Verizon tech support suggested that I do a factory reset. I did - big mistake! None of my contacts were backed up in google. It was a pain in the rear.

    The same thing started happening again today while I was deleting messages. I downloaded the handcent app and the text was there! I deleted it and have not received it again!!!

    I am so happy that I don't have to reset my phone again!!!!

    Sorry to bump an old-*** thread, but have we figured out what causes this or how to fix it? I was deleting a text and got one at the same time, and now I get the reoccurring message crap happening. I don't want to use Handcent. Maybe a cache needs to be cleared somewhere?

    It is probably going to take a full factory reset unfortunately. You can try to clear the cache on the SMS program and see.

    Try clearing cache in the htc messaging app under menu-> settings -> applications -> All
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    Cache-clearing didn't work. I installed Handcent, and when the notification popped up, I found it there and deleted it. It hasn't returned. Case closed.
