    Receiving same text message 2-3 times, will i be charged?

    When I receive a text message, it comes 2-3 or even 4 times in a row. Will this take out of my 500 messages (not an IN customer) its annoying, and some people say they get mine a few times.


    any get this or know if i will be billed for multiple texts?

    thanks

    You may want to contact Verizon about this. Since the customer is out of the network, my assumption would be that you will be charged for each of those texts. I have not experienced this myself with text messages.

    So, did it help ?
    Is it related to some particular user only ?
    Let us know how it goes, so that if anyone else has the problem, they know whats the solution.

    this is actually a motorola problem it started with the v60 and on the 265. The v710 was notorious for that problem. The answer is no you will not be charged for these text messages. The problem is in the phone itself when a new txt comes in the phone does not mark it as being read so the phone keeps alerting you of a new message. The best way to stop this is to delete the txt and maybe do a hard reset (remove the battery while the phone is on). You have no idea how many times I have seen the same problem always on motorola phones in the past two years. annoying but at least it wont cost you any extra dough.

    Yes I agree this is not only a motorola problem I have seen it happen on almost every make of phone just mostly with motorolas. I have spoken to multiple engineers that have assured me it is not a network problem and a customer will never be charged for these messages, but yes you are right it is not only motorola phones this happens to just more prevailant in their make.

    when i called verizon, they told me i would be charged for it and if i go over my limit they could remove some charges.
