Txt msgs Doubling

Ever since I got my I-Phone, I have always received text messages twice.  Every message I receive comes through 2x.  I have kept track and I get dinged to receive a text of the same message which is a technical error, it counts as two messages against me.  Over a year and a half of this and never fixed.  Call verizon support and they can never figure anything out, go figure.  Has anyone else experienced this?

This is not the experience we want you to have with your awesome iPhone jessejames1980. I know its upsetting to get charged twice for the same message. Is this a prepaid account? Are you using a 3rd party messaging application that you downloaded to your device? Have you tried to turn imessage off and on? I also recommend resetting the network settings? I have listed the steps below.

  • From the Home screen, navigate: Settings > General > Reset.

  • Tap Reset Network Settings.

  • Enter the 4-digit passcode.

  • Tap Reset Network Settings.

Let me know if the above steps helped.
