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 solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd 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
