Why are people getting multiple text messages?

Yesterday I started to get reports from certain friends with iPhones that they were getting the same text message 3 times. It is not all iPhone users and the carrier varies. My phone shows only one message sent. I have a Samsun Galaxy S7.

Anyone got any hints as to what's up?

Thanks.

No additional questions.

I switched to using the Samsung Messages app for texting and the duplicates stopped.

Thank you for reaching out to us XSAM. We want to ensure we get this issue resolved for you. Let's get started. Are all of your applications up to date? You should also try to clear the cache and data of the stock messaging app then check if the issue disappears.
