Ran thru 9600 messages in a flash and found none of the 4800 duplicates...previously accidentally restored backup 2x...oh well.
"deleted" over 200 things but still had duplicates... What?
Didn't work for me :(
Does exactly what it claims. I am on an s6 running Android 6
Does not work.
Work well with android 6
Easy to use, worked first time
It scans the sms messages but when it goes to clean it crashes "SMS Deduplicate has stopped"
It was able to detect 8,000+ duplicate sms from a previous restore and deleted all of them. I'm using the android 6.0 marshmallow version. Thank you.
It was working.. now it stopped stuck on 0/0... cleared cache etc no luck..
It appears it skips messages with Unicode characters.
Just works. Note: My device is a Galaxy S2 (yea, old phone) running CM12.
Does one thing... and it dies it well. It de-dups your texts. Works perfectly.
Perfect app. Does exactly as it says. No ads and even prompts to change back to messenger afterwards. Only app you need if you have duplicates.
Useless , did not work
Perfect it did the job, will be more awesome if you can include MMS as well!! Thanks for the great work
Give us an option to see the duplicate pair, message and time sent or recieved. So we can compare.
AFAIK this is the only app that works. Got rid of 3525 duplicate SMS.
It deleted everything. Definitely not good
I was looking for something that did this and this app does it perfectly. Thanks.
Worked perfectly. Been looking for something like this for years.
deleting very, very, slowly...
Works as intended
Found/deleted 2 exact dupes. Rescanned to ignore timestamps and found/deleted almost 200. Never deleted the dupes I wanted to delete, my "texts to self" (used as note to self, literally). This would be a 5 star feature and worth buying. Also needs a preview list of what it's deleting, very important... Thanks dev!
Make it a bit more user-friendly and it'd be five stars. E.g. show the message when no duplicates or duplicates are deleted. I also got a hang on UI like there were still duplicates removal in progress but after I restarted the app it has reported no duplicates.
Recently upgraded and accidently backed up texts twice. The app only found 2 with timestamp off. Then 800 with it on. I still have thousands of duplicate messages it missed.
This app fixed up my botched SMS restore without a hitch. Great interface, what a life saver. Thank you so much.
Just what I needed. I had over 3400 duplicate messages and this app found them all and deleted every last one of them.
Like other person said. Scanned duplicated but it didn't delete it just stuck at 0/0... didn't work...
Doesn't work on galaxy note 7, crashes when trying to delete. Sent a log from the crash
The app identified the duplicate texts, but unfortunately the app gave me an error when it attempted to delete the duplicates, before crashing. I've tried using the app multiple times but get the same error.
It deleted all my received duplicate messages but not the ones I sent. HTC One M8 running 6.0
The app reads the duplicates, but does not delete them!!
