    This is happening with my wife and my son.

    They text within Group messages and get double texts back. Is there a fix to this?

    This is a new issue and can't seem to figure it out.

    Carrier?

    I've noticed this being specific to certain carriers, so it may not be OS or device related.

    I constantly get double or triple text messages from Sprint users on a variety of devices and OS's.

    I've seen this happen more frequently in places of poor cell reception. This is typically related to the carrier.

    I had this happen from a friends Droid (Samsung). Her carrier is Verizon. I mentioned it to her, but she had no clue why or what to do about it. Eventually, it stopped happening.

    ATT here and only in group texts. It feels like it needs to send me every text I send out.

    Very interesting. Yes AT&T and yes coming back as a text message (not iMessage). This would explain why it happens to only some phones on the plan and my son said that his just self corrected all the sudden a few days ago.

    Thanks for all the input

    I have AT&T and have multiple group texts with no issue at all.. I don't know what could be the issue.

    This happens every once in a while to me as well, with texts from two friends and my boyfriend. We're on T-Mobile.
