Receiving the same text over and over.

My wife and I both have HTC Raider phones, on Koodo prepaid. For the past two days we have been receiving the same text over and over. I sent her a text, and she has received it 14 times now and the same when she sends me a text.
This happens on every text we send each other.
The last time this happened, it may have been because of a weak cell signal, but, now we are both at home with a very strong signal.
PLEASE, how can we make it stop? It is very annoying.

Oh, and yes, we have turned the phone off, removed the battery and SIM card.

May be phone-specific, but Android 4.4:

Messaging=>Settings => (scroll way down) => Message alert repetition => choose NEVER.

No point in waking you both up every 2-10 minutes.

One option to try; get into Settings > Apps > ALL - scroll down to and tap Messages. You should see seven grey buttons labelled: About, Force stop, Disable, Clear data, Move to phone storage, Clear cache and Clear defaults. Tap on Clear defaults, Clear cache and Clear data, then restart your phone.

If the the Clear defaults, Clear cache and Clear data buttons are greyed out (e.g. Move to phone storage), select Force stop instead, press OK and restart your phone. Try sending a text and see if this corrects the problem.

Nope, did not work. Tried this, shut down phone, removed battery and sim card. Started up, sent a text to my wife and she received it multiple times again.
Very frustrating. Looks like I may have to do a reset on both phones. Hopefully that will help.
I try to reset my phone. and it works.
