I have an HTC phone that keeps sending duplicate text messages because it thinks delivery is failing. Except they're sending out fine. So now I just send out 8 text messages every time I try to send something. How do I fix this?
I have no idea where to even begin googling this. I have this phone
running Android 2.3.3 / HTC Sense 2.1.
Starting yesterday morning, it started thinking that it couldn't connect to the mobile network (Bell, in Canada) that I'm registered with. It could still make phone calls, but it couldn't access data. After fiddling around with it a bit and re-registering the APN, I got it to connect again.
Throughout this whole time, and even after it connected to the network again, my phone seems to be convinced that none of the text messages I'm sending are going out properly. So it keeps trying to send them, the result being that people I text end up receiving about 8 duplicate texts. I've tried sending myself a test just now, and yep, got 7 copies of it.
I've called my mobile carrier's tech support and they have no clue what to do. Perhaps AskMe will.
Thanks in advance, everyone.
