Not sure if you’re using iphone but i had a similar problem a few years back and it was due to imessage. I think i just turned it off and then restarted my phone and it fixed it.

Jackscot it shouldn't be happening either way have you turned your data on and off? To see if that helps and a lot of the time it might not send because the person your sending it to has no internet

Something must be wrong with the networks in the U.K. because I receive 3 messages of the same thing!

I thought it might have been my phone malfunctioning, then I remembered this thread.

Jackscot This unfortunately doesn't look like it's something Samsung, Google, or Apple can fix, but rather the network(s) themselves.
