Not all messages but if I'm replying to a message it comes back can not send and without me sending again it keeps sending so using up my free texts and people receive the message 4 or 5 times. All my contacts getting fed up with receiving this many.

@bever21 Try restarting your phone by switching to airplane mode for a few seconds then back again, to make a fresh connection to the network, you can also try going into settings on your phone and switch to 3G or 2G and see if the texts sends, another thing too try is to put a delivery report on your text message just type *0# (that's star zero hash) and the message and you'll receive a text back that it's been delivered)not necessarily read though) , it costs 5p per delivery report or a text from your allowances or free if you've got unlimited texts hope this helps 🙂

It's your phone, the cache memory is full.

@bever21 please try a manual roam as explained here to update network again http://is.gd/manualroam 

 

Or try a soft reset by holding down the power button and up and down volume button at same time until phone reboots its self and see if works then

@bever21 Do you have notifications ON? Do you get a message pop up when you've sent a text? If so switch this OFF here https://giffgaff.com/profile/details#notifications and SAVE, if you prefer it on, toggle OFF, log out ... log in again  then toggle back on again as it may help, though usually having the notification OFF solves these multiple texts sending.
