    I am having a few problems text messaging on my Droid X.

    First, certain recipients of my texts either receive blank messages or scrambled messages containing random symbols. I can't send text messages to these contacts at all anymore.

    Second, when a text is sent to me, I often will receive a duplicate text almost immediately after the first. Is there any way to fix this problem?

    (I tried downloading and using Handcent but it didn't help.)

    What apps are you using? I started getting duplicate texts the other day, so I deleted some of my most recently added apps. After I did that, the problem disappeared.

    I have almost 200 apps. Maybe I should try uninstalling some of the more recent ones.

    if the people you are getting dups from are using a BB it could be that too.

    I have relatively few apps, a newish Droid 2, and just had the same problem - while the phone was on the charger and I was sleeping through the night, it sent 7 texts to my sister, all made up of random letters and symbols, and it signed MY name!

    If anyone establishes a cause or a fix, I would love to hear about it.

    (on another forum, someone who had this problem went back to Verizon and the staff there "had never heard of it." I sure hope they have heard about it by now; apparently it's a common occurrence)

    out of all the user who posted about duplicate texts being received, who has a rooted android device and is using a custom rom?
