Let’s see what’s causing the issue with your messages. Does this occur with iMessage and/or standard message? When did the problem begin? Does the issue occur with all or a recipient?

We want you to get only one message at time [Personal information removed as required by the Verizon Wireless Terms of Service] . You indicate that this happens with a regular iPhone message. Do you mean a messages received with the iMessage application, or the regular text message application (not iMessage)? What application do you use for regular (not iMessage) text messages? What is your iOS version?

Duplicate messages can certainly get annoying! Let’s keep at this for you. Do they get duplicates of the message you send them? Are all your apps up to date with your phone? Are calls working normally to the other person?

   fiery, do you happen to be sharing a iCloud account? If so this could possibly be the reason?

You could go into Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and tap on it, your number should be the only one showing in there.

All apps are up to date.

The other person does not receive double messages from me.

Phone calls work fine.

@salsbury I checked and I'm the only one listed.

I rely on my messages everyday. Since this is not occurring with standard text messaging, we can focus on the iMessage feature as the culprit. iMessaging is a feature provided by Apple. When you turn your phone on, Apple may not be getting the notice that the iMessage has been received on your phone. I would highly recommend reaching out to Apple to further assist.
