    ANNOYED...??? that Doesn't even begin...

    EVER SINCE I GOT MY CRICKET ANDROID, i have gotten duplicate texts, they (cricket) says it is a software issue on their end, and that i have to live with it till they fix it. however now, it is getting ridiculous,i will get up to 7 or 8 repeated messages, i wonder if it is eating up ram space or if the system lumps them in one so they don't take up extra space...i hope they fix it soon...

    i live with this one every day. sometimes you can get an account "refresh" from customer support. make sure the device is turned off when you call. with the battery out. this all may just be voodoo magic. but after you get your refresh from customer support go ahead and factory default reset your device. . this process may not work with modified phones. or at all

    This has been going on for years now. It would be nice if they would just fix it for everyone.

    Thankfully I haven't had many problems.

    I have been with cricket for 6 years before I switched to PagePlus...had that issue 2 times or so but it was customer's phone sending the texts twice.
    Used flashed phones at all times. I also sell flashed phones, and never had a customer report an issue of this sort. May be we should collect data of which phones are affected by this problem...
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

    1. Try different mms apps to see the prob disappears.
    2. Freeze your stock mms app to see if the prob disappears.
    3. Check your new mms app settings to disable the stock mms app.
    4. Tell us what you have tried or not tried so we arent guessing.
    5. Do the multiple txts come all at once or seperated by minutes/hours?

    sent from the future.

    Sprint Galaxy S3



    I have been with cricket for some time now and have never had this issue.. Until now.. I have a rooted Sprint S3 flashed to cricket, recently flashed a 4.4 ROM and I now get DUP messages. The messages come both at the same time. This specific ROM does not come with a sock messaging app. It looks like hangouts is the default and even after installing the Cricket mesaging app (to receive MMS) there is no way of changing hangouts from being the default. I have disabled hangouts notifications so I don't receive two notifications but I do receive the DUP messages in both apps. I'm just curious if anyone else running the same ver is having this issue, and if there is a known fix. I'd like to keep the ROM since it took me flashing 5 diff ones to find one that had data working since CM 11 seems to not be able to figure out the data issue on my device. Thanks in advance!
