Connect duplicates outbound texts!


Connect duplicates outbound texts!

I love the Connect app. BUT it is causing some very big headaches with duplicate text messages.

This has been going on since day one of using Connect app. I just didn't know it until people started complaining and showed me their devices.

My text messages will duplicate themselves up to a dozen times, often hours and even days apart.

I've three devices so it's not my device's fault. I've lollipop, marshmallow, and nougat devices and it does it on ALL of them.

Does anyone know what the problem could be and how to solve it?

It's becoming very embarrassing and annoying.

Thank you, in advance! ☺

I've also had the same issue since day 1 of using the xfinity connect app.


Did you ever find the solution?


Re: Connect duplicates outbound texts!

No, I've not and the problem has actually escalated to the point that 2 persons have blocked my texts.

One of those persons is my Physician.

I've no idea what to do and have given up calling Comcast/Xfinity as every single person gives a different answer (but that's been true of EVERYTHING I ask for assistance with).

Their support is quite poor. I don't think their Representatives receive training.

Usually here, in the forum, someone will know answers but I guess no one can figure this one out.
