Hello Jack,

Are you in a low signal region? Maybe the phone thinks it didn't send the text when it actually did? Did you try restarting the phone to see if the problem is solved?

Are you using a third party texting app? If so try using the stock one and see if that makes a difference.
If you have another phone or can borrow a friends, pop your sim card in that in see if it still sends duplicate messages.

I callled Koodo  (611) and they reset everything over the phone and I deleted the text conversation with my buddy that was getting all the texts I didn't send. Seems to be working

Ok thank you Ray!  I have deleted the entire conversation and had my friend do it too.  I also took out the battery.  So far so good but if it happens again  i will call Koodo for a reset.  
Thanks again!

To expand on Ray's comment, I was experiencing the same issue yesterday and earlier today. A call to Koodo's tech support department (611, options 6 then 2) appears to have fixed the problem. The rep will ask you to power off the phone for five minutes while he or she does a network reset at their end. Wait time was less than ten minutes and the rep was courteous and helpful. Thanks for the tip, Ray.
