    Question Receiving duplicates of Handcent texts

    My fiancee has an LG Optimus M & uses Metro PCS (she's in FL completing a few remaining hours of her Graduate degree), I'm in NY, Droid X on vzw

    We both have Handcent SMS and both our phones are "stock", no root. At random times/days she sends texts that I end up receiving 4, 5, or 6 times
    I typically micromanage my texts well to keep below the 250 threshold that is included with my plan, but if her texts continue to duplicate themselves I will be over 250 very rapidly.

    Is there any app available that can restrict receiving the same content as multiple texts sent from the same phone number or gmail address. I'm not kidding myself with the belief that an app exists that can read or intercept & identify text content. Is there anything that can recognize and defer the receipt of a text of the same size, versus content, from the same sender within a certain period of time (10 - 120 minutes)? Or would something of this nature potentially not receive texts at all from anyone else who sends texts to me, or block my receiving her texts?

    Thanks for any thoughts or advice.

    That's not the worst of it. I don't know whether my issue is related to Hancent or not but I replied back to a text i got and it went to two different people - unwillfully

    Have you tried clearing data in both handcent and the stock messaging apps? Also, make sure automatic retrieve is turned off on the stock app as well as notifications.

    on the move..

    Yes, data has been cleared. The description Automatic Retrieve sounds obvious & should explain itself, but not to me. I've disabled it, per your suggestion, what will be done differently now?
