I'm a new user of text messaging, and it seems that everytime I send a text to someone, it gets sent twice. It gets resent i guess. Just wondering if this has something to do with my phone plan, or my actual cell phone. Thanks!

This model not the best for doing & receiving pictures or texts. But I sometimes have issue above if someone has sent a message or a picture to me as part of a group message. I seem to have less issues if they send it to just me directly. Next time someone sends you one, text them back & ask them to send you pic/message seperately, not within a group & see if that helps
I was having this very same problem with my brand new Propel. It seems that the longer the message is, the phone will split it into multiple messages, because it starts at 1 and as I continue typing it increments the number of messages to be sent. If I delete some characters, then the number of messages goes down. I seems like it allows about 160 characters per message.
What I'm still confused about it why it is driving your friends crazy. Are they getting the full message multiple times? I would think they would get multiple messages with a portion of your message in each. Are they getting the messages out of order?
I get a green arrow when I send to people.
The green arrows turns into a checkmark, when the message is delivered.
With Verizon people this is usually within a minute or so, of course unless my friend has his phone powered off - which he will do, then I don't get a checkmark until his cell gets the message.
With Non-Verizon people I don't get a green checkmark until a day later, must take longer to confirm they got it from another cell company.
The RED X is normally what I get when I try to send to a landline or an invalid phone number, or if I try to send a message - while my phone was getting an incoming message..or to someone who has text blocked. The RED X means it did not go through at all. I will re-send these if I know it's a cell phone that can get text. Then I usually make it to green arrow/then green checkmark.
Had a similar problem myself (Sony Ericsson W890i) - just a plain old SMS message got 'queued' in the outbox, and all further messages I tried to send got sent to the outbox too without ever being sent.
What I did was delete all the messages that I could from the outbox (5 out of the 6 which had been 'queued'), and the one remaining message that I could not delete I cancelled, sent it to the Drafts folder, and then Saved it (to the SIM). I then switched off the phone, took out the SIM card, put it in my old Sony Ericsson handset, switched that on, went to the Messages folder and deleted this one troublesome SMS message from the 'Saved' sub folder. Replaced the SIM in my current handset, and sending messages thereafter was no problem. Hope it works for you too!
I had the same problem with my new Blackjack 2, I could receive txts, but my friends would not receive the ones I sent. To fix it, I put a + in front of the number. and added the 1 before the area code. so their numbers looked like this +1(areacode)number. now they get them. Others had to do a hard reset of their Blackjacks, but it worked.
It's a operator message. Your SIM card need to send a message to the operator to inform something about your phone (like you are using a new phone) but the receiver don't recognize for what the message is. Your sim card will keep sending the message until it receives a valid response. Try to change the SIM card and see what happens. If the problem appears only with one card, you may ask your carrier company to change it.
