That is indeed strange that you’re phone is sending duplicate messages, CHRFUL74. We’re here to help get this fixed so your friends aren’t feeling annoyed anymore. When did this issue first start happening? What zip code are you located in? Do you know if any other Verizon users are having a similar issue with text messages? What changed before this behavior started (device changes, account changes, etc.)?
