When on bluetooth which is 90% of the time, I get text messages however if I leave phone behind and go on cellular every message that I received on bluetooth is now redownloaded over about 10 minutes. Any way to stop this?

Same problem on the S3. Was hoping it would be fixed with the GW. Now i have no real reason to "upgrade." I'm thinking it might be a carrier issue though. I'm on T-Mo using data with paired digits...

I'm getting the same thing on my S3 on T-Mobile with digits and it's crazy annoying. I had to change my watch face because the one I had been using showed me my notification badges. While my watch had it's own phone number,t his wasn't an issue at all. But T-Mobile talked me into using their Digits program and now it sucks.

Wouldn't be so terrible if you can clear them all with one press, but having to open each duplicate text to clear the notification badge is extremely annoying. Is everyone going through that too or amI missing something?

Exactly. I could live with this if I could clear all of the unread notifications in one step. I don't have the time or inclination to clear 100+ unread text messages

Talked with technical support they say it's a known issue and Samsung working on update. Now why could just be lying who knows

I took away all permissions for Samsung Messages on my Note 8 and on the watch. We'll see if this stops the duplicate messages when I disconnect from the phone
