    I did try a message search for this topic already, but I do appologize if this has been asked already here.

    About every other text message or so that I get, comes twice or even more times. And above the title of the next time(s) it comes it even says *duplicate*. Do you think verizon is charging me for the extra deliveries of these duplicates.

    I haven't figured out the pattern yet, but it seems like if i delete the text message really quickly just as soon as it comes in, then I get a duplicate within a few minutes. But if I leave the message or don't read it for a while then no dups.

    I figured someone here would no better then verizon cust support if I am getting charged for each delivery.

    This used to happen to me when my wife and I had V60i phones. Now, with our A530s phones, it does not happen any more. I believe it is caused by the sending phone. The v60i, with its original software, had a text messaging bug that caused the phone to think the message send failed. This caused the phone to send it again. We did upgrade the software which also alleviated the problem.

    What model phone is sending you the messages that are repeated? Maybe that phone has a software issue.

    Actaully it has happened to me from several people all with different phones. It even happened with some verizon trivia game service, where they would text message me some trivia questions each day.

    Definately call customer service and bring this up EVERY SINGLE TIME IT HAPPENS. It does cost you two ents and you would hate to have to pay too much extra fro textmessages you don't need.

    I have actually noticed the same thing, it doesnt happen often but it definately happens every once in a while for me. I even notice when I look at my sent messages list that there will be the same message their twice. (I think my sending problem was back when I had the 8600, i dont notice any duplicate sent messages on my 4500)

    Only time I get this duplicate problem is when I'm in a school here in which every provider is very weak. Downstairs I get 1/6 bars on my VX 6000 and I receive Text Messages fine, but then I loose service for a second and after service comes back, I get the same message again as a duplicate. Now this doesn't happen too often and it only happens in this area of very weak service. I think that the tower didn't recognize that it sent the TXT Message to you already because you're in an area of really low service and just sends it again as you reconnect with the tower...I don't know if this is right, but the only time I get this duplicate problem is inside this building where reception is a problem with every provider(but Nextel, because they have a cellsite on top of the building).

    I have never actually noticed if I am charged for it, next time i see it happening I will try and figure it out (its hard for me to keep track of how many texts I send and receive since I txt a decent amount)

    I have LG VX 8600. I receive text messages that say *duplicate* at top, but I only receive the message one time? From what I have read, most receive the message multiple times. Anyone else with this same issue? :)
