    My Android keeps sending me the same text message

    I have an Android phone. Several months ago I ordered something from a company, and when the product shipped, they sent me a text. I read it and then deleted it as usual, but then I got the same message again, and again, and again. I contacted the company and asked them to please stop sending me that same message, but they said they only sent it once, and never again. It then became apparent that my phone was sending me this old message, as if the message got stuck in the MMS system somehow, and it keeps sending it, I keep deleting it, and it then resends it, like a broken record. This has never happened with any other text message. Is this a virus that is causing this? Can this be fixed?

    If you don't delete it, does it still get resent to your phone ? Maybe try that after waiting 60 days hopefully it will expire from the MMS server and not get resent to your phone. Just an idea to try unless someone has a better suggestion.

    That sounds more like an issue with your provider than with the phone, who is your carrier?

    Just add it the reject list.
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a hypersensitive psychopathic dictator having complete power, obsessively suppressing criticism, regimenting industry & commerce. Emboldening racism & aggressive nationalism.

    I checked that app, and there's no data in the cache. Should I try clearing the actual MMS app data? I'm a little hesitant to try that, I've done that before with apps, to create more storage space, and I think that made my phone go sort of haywire for a while.

    No, don't delete the data as that will delete all of your messages. I think the issue is not with the phone, but with your carrier. Have you tried asking them to look into it?

    Have you tried re-inserting your sim card? If the problem is with your carrier then the best course of action is just get in touch with them directly.
