iPhone receiving text messages twice.

My iPhone keeps receiving text messages twice. Identical texts. But not from everyone, just alot of people, and they arn't sending them twice...its weird.

Anyone else had this?

I doubt that is the case here, because it is happening with texts from many different people

I have received messages twice before and when I contacted AT&T about it they gave me the explanation that the person sending was going through a no service or low service zone and the phone sent it twice. I have unlimited texting so I didn't ask if I was charged twice. I assume that you would because you are receiving two messages. I also have had my iPhone notify me twice for one text message but not notify me a minute or two after I receive it. It does however vibrate or ring about two seconds before the screen says I have a text message. I have found this to be normal and not frustrating at all.

Definitely check with your service provider just to be sure; maybe there is a problem with your message centre settings or similar. I can't imagine that your provider would end up charging you for more because generally you don't have to pay to receive messages [at least we don't in the UK], that is unless you are roaming on another network abroad.

Americans pay for receiving calls and sms'.

On a maybe related note: I sometimes receive a message and immediately read it. A few minutes later I get the SMS notification sound again but no new SMS'. Has anyone experienced this as well ?

This happened to me yesterday. I received a message from someone and about 2 minutes later I received the exact same message even though they didn't send it twice.

This happens to me too once and a while. Really annoying. I wonder if it charges me for 2...

Silly question but is it actually recieving two messages so when you view the message in the SMS application the entries are duplicated.

I've had a network glitch before where one day in a short period I receive a lot of duplicated messages, is this happening consistantly for long periods.

Or not then it is the double alert that the iPhone gives for text messages (a stupid setting if you ask me).

No, it is definitely receiving the message twice, as in it shows up twice in my messages. Has been happening for a few days now. Just wondering if maybe I should phone up my service provider? I don't want them somehow trying to charge me more!

Oh and thanks for moving the thread
