I seem to be having an error with my phone's basic sms messaging. Whenever i receive a message from anybody (including contacts) it keeps re-receiving the message for about a dozen times. Eventually this stops but till then the same message is received every 5-6 minutes.
Can anyone enlighten me on this particular problem, if familiar with it.
Thank you very much.

That's pretty unique. Never heard of it before. Maybe start with a reset of your phone. If that doesn't work koodo will have to reset your account at the network level.

How is the reception in your area. It seem the network is not getting a confirmation that you have received the message and is trying to keep sending it to you?

Try removing the battery and sim for a few mins and trying again
