    Default Double Text notification

    Got the update last night now every text i receive chimes twice.

    Not using any other texting app or have one installed.

    I noticed that a new notification icon after the update along with the old one. If I turn off the notification in text settings the new icon still chimes.

    The only way to clear new notification is to pull down the top menu and hit clear. Also delete old messages is disabled.

    Do you use Google Voice? Go into the app and under settings/sync and notifications and make sure text notifications are turned off.

    Turn off DRIVING MODE

    Go to settings> language input> txt to speech> drive mode.....there it is..... mode...just turn off!
    or at the top of settings toggles there is one for driving mode if you are running Jelley Bean.

    Are you using a different messenger or installed a different one? If you are just disable stock notifications

    When you tap the alternate or messaging icon that's in the pull down menu, Where does it take you? Does it take you to the stock messaging app? Press it and see which app it takes you to. Then see if that app has a setting to turn off notifications or if you can uninstall it. But let us know when you receive a message and tap the other icon where does it show you the message at

    I know you said you don't have a third party app installed but the stock notification app doesn't have that icon. Almost looks like a Handcent icon.

    Doesn't take me any where. Just closes the drop down menu. Only way to get rid of icon is to hit the clear button.

    Havent installed anything. All this started after the 4.1.1 update.

    Get a friend with the same phone and let them put their sim in your phone and receive a text. If it doesn't happen then ask Verizon for a new sim card because you're getting duplicate notifications. Its either a network issue or a bad sim card. Keep us updated

    Just tried switching sims that didn't work either. Thinking of doing a hard reset.

    If that isn't a hassle then maybe try that. If the sim switch didn't work then go to Verizon and tell them your issue. You're covered under the warranty for a new phone. Have you done a factory reset since the update?

    Okay I did a factory reset. It went away but as it updated the apps it started to do it again.

    Guess I have to figure out which one it was.

    I'd start with the apps that might have notifications. It'll be extremely time consuming to find the culprit. Maybe back track to when it started happening and see which apps you've installed around that time. That may narrow it down some.

    I think he meant after the factory reset, his phone started downloading all his apps back in it.

    Yeah because I'm all out of ideas. Last thing, take out the sim and re insert in the phone just for no damn reason but who knows. Tell Verizon your issue and the warranty should cover you getting another phone.

    Which 3rd party apps are you installing? And how many Google Play accounts do you have?

    If you could have a friend near you you could factory reset and then install one app at a time and send a text after each to catch the culprit. This could be time consuming though depending on how many apps you have.
