Let's take a look into this, we want your messages sent only once. Let me ask...are you using a 3rd party application for messaging, or the app that came with the phone? Are you receiving messages just once, or more than once? What's the software version of your device?
To troubleshoot, please remove the SIM from the device, and power off/on. Then, test again.
