    As far as I can tell, you get a second alert when you haven't opened / read the first.

    The same thing was happening to me so i rebooted my phone. Just hold the lock and home button down until the screen goes blank. Keep holding until the apple logo appears and voila erythings all good.

    I don't know if this is the problem in the previous cases, but there is also a "Repeat Alert" for Messages (under Notifications). Mine was set at "1", so I was getting a repeat of every notification.  I switched it to None and now I get only 1 alert.

    Go to settings, notifications, messages - scroll down to Repeat Alert and change it to none (or however many times you want the text to repeat) - my was defaulted to Once.

    My repeat was set to NEVER, so that wasn't the problem. Contrary to posts in this thread, this is a bug.

     

    The procedure liste worked for me (we'll see for how long), thanks.

    lephunk was in the right area and I am sure it has changed due to new iOS but go to

    Settings -> Notifications Center> Messages, scroll down to Repeat Alerts and select Never

    I am having the same issue but at least i understand whats wrong finally.

     

    Look at the imessage as it appears in your text screen. it says "imessage". then.... (and heres the genius part) Look at the duplicate message underneath. do you notice the difference. it says "Message". (text message)

     

    What this indicates is that it is NOT your phone issue. The senders/receivers phone is  in a poor cellular coverage area. When this imessage thinks it is not being received it is resent as a text message. resulting in 2 identical messages appearing on your phone. Poor coverage on your receiving end results in the same result.

     

    You will find some inbound friends messages are duplicating more than others.and other times, not at all. it fluctuates because 3G/ Edge coverage either on yours or your senders end has been compromised.

     

    If both sender and receiver are on WIFI, no problems occur and message is not duplicated. Unfortunately it cannot be helped as it is not a phone issue rather a cellular network issue. Try the WIFI test and let me know.

    Go to Settings --> Notifications --> Messages --> Repeat Alert and set to Never. This is how you fix your iphone repeating text message alerts. Try it out.

    @Firelfy_Apollo: You're right; that is the setting. It is a silly setting

    Here's how to fix it:

     

    > go to Settings.

    > go to "Notification Center"

    > scroll down to "Messages"

    > click on "Repeat Alerts"

    > select "Never"

     

    That's it!
