SMS messages being sent multiple ti es

I just purchased an iPhone 12 Mini. SMS messages I send are being received by recipients multiple times (usually four time). I have restarted the phone. Removed and replaced the SIM etc but still happens. My coverage appears to be fine (another phone using the same NBN etc is not having the same problem). Any ideas as it is driving my contacts mad.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Try resetting the network settings:

 

Settings -> General-> Reset -> Reset Network Settings

Thanks for that. It actually seems that the phone number under Settings > Phone was not my number ???? (I had a older prepaid number transferred to the new SIM so perhaps that is why). Resetting that appeared to fix the problem but thank you for your help anyway. If it happens again I will reset the Network settings.
