I've had this problem for awhile now, but I receive a ton of double, sometimes triple, and even one time I got 4, texts from the same person. Most of the people I get it from are on Verizon.

Anyone else have a problem like this?

I have never had this issue actually.

The other devices on Verizon, any idea what type of device? Also, does it happen maybe when you come back into a service zone from an area with no service?

This is an Android issue not a DROID issue. I have a DROID and my girlfriend has a MyTouch 3G on T-Mobile. we get duplicates from each other and other people all the time.

I found I get this sometimes. Most are when a pic is sent to me. I got chopsms running and at first I was getting from both the phone and chomp. Found out here to turn off the phone sms.

I'm leaning more towards a Verizon issue more than anything. My girlfriend who has an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile complains that I send double triple texts... but when I use my iPhone 3GS on AT&T it never happens. And now since I have the Nexus One on AT&T it never happens. That tells me it is Verizon.

Not to mention my buddy Cory (moderator) has sent me double's various times over the years and he's had all sorts of Verizon devices.

I send double texts to people quite often. I think it has something to do with my replacement keyboard (Smart Keyboard right now).

I also receive messages in doubles and even triplicates from at&t users, so I wouldn't say it's any specific carrier or device. It's a network thing IMHO and YMMV based on where you are located.

I have always had a heck of a time with texting between my VZW BB & Droid to my girlfriends iPhone. Double messages. No messages. Triple messages. Any and everything except normal message exchanges.

I've had Verizon for years, have worked in the industry for 15 years and worked with all the major carriers. It is definately a Verizon problem. They are aware of it and have as of yet, not been able to fix it. It is something with the way the system sees the text coming in from the tower and relays it to the other phone. I see double texts all the time. Not all day long but I would say a few times a week.

I get them mostly from friends who have other carriers but I have seen them from friends on Verizon too so it's not Android or Droid.

I've noticed this a tad since I got the droid. I never had this issue ever with my blackberry tour except from my brother on tmobile. This is with YEARS of verizon, probably 5+

I'm on Verizon, and I never had problems with duplicate text with standard SMS, but I do have it happen to me occasionally with Google Voice, but who cares since its free.

See I think my issue is different. Sometimes I'll hit "Send" after typing a message and it actually pops up and sends twice on my phone. It doesn't duplicate after it leaves my phone, my Droid actually sends it twice LOL

I have not had that problem...YET. However, I had a problem texting one time when i would press on the letters on phone and it would type the letter many times. ( eg. HHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEELLLLLLLOOOOO TTTTTHHHEERRRREE) I would take my finger off the screen and it would CONTINUE typing letters! This only happened one time and after resetting phone it has not happened again.:confused:

This was the first thing I thought of. There is/was an issue with sending a text in landscape mode on a droid with Google voice which will cause multiple texts to be received by the recipient. Sending the texts in portrait mode makes that issue go away.

Just a thought

I've had some issues with multiple texts with my wife.
But as of yesterday, I haven't been receiving any texts or pics from friends on other networks (T-Mo and At&T).
It's fricking annoying. I was late to a meeting yesterday due to this problem.:mad:

Anyone else having something similar?
