Receiving the same text messages multiple times on Samsung Galaxy. Duplicate messages received from the same number. Sender sends one text message but receive it more than once. Same text message is received repeatedly on Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4, Note 4 edge, Grand Prime and more.
This is caused by a software issue where your device does not properly signal the network that it has received the initial message, so the network sends your device the same message multiple times.
