randallg -Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. Resolving the text messaging issue you are having is our top priority. So that we can get to the bottom of the issue, you and your wife are having, I will need you to ask you some questions. When did this issue begin? What text message application are you using? Is it the yellow and white envelope named Messages or the red icon with 2 white conversation bubbles in the middlle named Message+. The last piece of information is crucial. Do you use the Verizon Cloud application to back up your devices?

The issue started the last week of July. We can delete texts and they will come back 1, 2 and 3 times over a short period of time (5 minutes to 2 hours) We will delete again and again with no results. We are using Message+ and do not back up our phones on the Cloud. We have had serious issues with the Cloud backing up our home computer and will not allow the Cloud to be activated on our devices. We will be heading to our local Verizon store in the next few days to see if they can help with this issue. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
randallg, thanks for providing that additional detail. I'm sure we can figure this out. Let's first start with the sync settings for your Message+ application, Please click the menu button in the Message+ application (3 lines in the upper left hand corner of the app) and then select Settings. Is the option to Sync Messages over Wi-Fi selected?

Have you tried using the other pre-installed messages app on the phone? If you delete from there do they come back? If you are not using the back up there aren't too many other features that Messages+ offers unless you do like I do and set an auto response when it connects to the car bluetooth.
