Receiving the same text message multiple times on samsung galaxy s6


Receiving the same text messages multiple times on Samsung Galaxy S6. Duplicate messages received from the same number. Sender sends one text message but receiving it more than once. Same text message is received repeatedly on Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus or Galaxy S6 Plus.


If you receive duplicate copies of the same messages on your Galaxy S6, 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. To fix this issue, follow these steps:

  • First, make sure your software is up to date by going into Settings > About Device > Software Update

  • If your device is up-to-date, then the only remaining solution to this issue is to perform a backup and restore of your Samsung Galaxy S6, as this will fix the issue of having the messages repeatedly sent to you.
