working backwards to avoid receiving duplicate sms

android 2.3

I get duplication of most received (not sent) sms messages

this started when I added another sms viewer app ( I think I have 3 )

how can I reduce this to seeing 1 sms per sms

I forget the name of the app(s)

The other apps may be causing this duplication.

The most popular 3rd party SMS apps are Handcent and GoSMS. Look for them and uninstall them.

If you post a list of the apps you have installed, maybe we'll be able to recognize the SMS ones
