    Default Anyone else getting both iMessage and SMS for each text?

    This is a new one for me: suddenly, every time I get a text from anyone who uses iMessage, my phone gets both the iMessage AND a standard SMS. It's really annoying, and while turning off iMessage gets rid of the issue that isn't really an option for me since some of my contacts are iMessage only.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas for a fix? My phone is set to receive iMessages only at my phone number, so it's not an issue of having multiple addresses.

    That's weird. I've never heard of that happening before. Sorry I can't help.

    Sorry, Massie, I'm with Karen on this. I've never heard of such a thing and I am not experiencing and have not experienced anything like it.

    No worries, cycling iMessage off and back on again seems to have cleared it up so far.
