S6 sends duplicate texts

I am on Sprint, not sure if it matters, a few times it has happened where I send a text to someone. I look again, and it shows the message has sent over and over and over again. it keeps going until I reboot the phone. I am using the normal "messages" app. Has anyone seen this or know a fix for it? I was gonna try using Message Plus to see if that stops it.

Re: S6 sends duplicate texts

Are the recipients getting the text repeatedly, or none of them? Almost sounds like the app is thinking the send failed so retrying. If recipient gets nothing, then the app is working as it is apparently intended - resending until success. If the recipient gets multiple messages then something is indicating it wasn't sent. Either way, try clearing the app cache, and if that doesn't work clear system cache.

Re: S6 sends duplicate texts

The recipient receives every single text the phone sends. A few every minute until I reboot the phone.
