    For a long time now, I've been getting dup text messages. The first one will come in and around 5 mintues later, the SAME text message appears again. Strangely, these are all commerical texts messages. Do several businesses send repeat texts? I don't ever remember getting a dup personal text message.

    A bit annoying...

    Set them as a contact. Then block that contact. Job done.

    No problem, if they are using a range of sending numbers (as big orgs sometimes do from an SMS sending farm), simply add all the numbers to the same blocked contact and it should silence them all
