Nevermind I figured it out on the iphone. I think it was just a few parts of a message just forwarded to the same phone. Thanks!

Now how do I delete this account so I don't keep getting emails?

Great question stacybrownie! Let's get to the bottom of this so that it's not a cause for concern. When a message is sent to/from your own number, it will display as one sent, one received. This makes it display two messages as you are seeing. Let's clarify the second part of your question. Where do you see "Verizon Message" exactly? What is the long number at the end of the text? When did this start and is it with all text messages or only this instance?

It's part of a text received from an actual person/different number, but then it's recent from my own number. It just says Verizon Message ########## on both sides (sent/received) at the bottom of that message. It's a family member's phone so I don't know exactly what that number means. Just curious if it means it was saved to a computer or something and then recent to the phone.

I appreciate more details about this stacybrownie. This is odd, I have not seen this before. However, I need more details and I apologize for my confusion. Are you forwarding the message to someone else? Is it a group message? Does it happen with all the messages? Please clarify.
