iPhone 4 sending the same text multiple times!

My iPhone 4 on ios 5 has been sending the same text multiple times. Sometimes even 5 times. When i message someone, on the top it would say "sending 5 of 5". Sometimes it wouldnt even say it and the person who I texted tell me they get my texts 3 times. This has been a recurring issue since beta 1. On ios 4, sometimes i wouldnt get my friends texts.

Verizon iPhone

Just to throw this out there:

All of my friends with Verizon, regardless of the phone, will send multiples and sometimes receive multiples of text messages. Blackberry, iPhone, and androids on Verizon do it to me (gsm iPhone) and other friends. This has been going on for me for about 2 years. And it's not just Verizon to AT&T my friends with t-mobile and sprint have the same issues with Verizon users.

I'm having this same problem, which didn't begin, for me, until iOS 5. I'm constantly seeing "Sending 2 of 2" or something similar and friends are letting me know they are receiving the same message two and three times.

I'm also using an iPhone 4 on Verizon.

I'm going to report the bug, but wanted to chime in here to support what the OP said.

Texts in Limbo?

I've had multiple people tell me (AT&T, Sprint, AND Verizon users) that they are receiving sometimes 2 or 3 of the same text I send from my Verizon iPhone 4. I've only sent these messages once, and sometimes it says the message was sent and they never even got it. I've also had people tell me they sent me texts that I never received. This is very frustrating, and has caused more than a few problems if you can imagine...

Much agreed! I've had verizon for four years and no matter what phone you have it'll send sometimes three messages and give you the "failure" notification. Therefore you send it again and end up sending the person four messages consisting of the same thing. I have no idea why it does that.
