Why are my text messages going to another phone android?


Have you ever sent a text message and it goes to another phone android? It’s happened to the best of us. There can be a few reasons why this happens. In this blog post, we will explore the top three reasons why your text messages might be going to another phone android. 1) You accidentally sent the message to the wrong contact. 2) The contact you’re trying to reach has a different texting plan than you do. 3) There’s a problem with your phone or the other person’s phone. We will also explore how you can fix each of these problems so that you can avoid this mistake in the future.

How to Fix the Problem

If your text messages are going to another phone, it’s likely because your message notifications are being sent to a different device. To fix this problem, you’ll need to change your notification settings.

1. Open the Settings app on your Android device.
2. Tap “Notifications.”
3. Select “Messages” from the list of apps with notifications options.
4. Make sure that the “Notifications” toggle is turned on and that the “Show notifications on lock screen” and “Show floating notifications” options are both turned off.
5. Exit the Settings app and open the Messages app.
6. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner of the app and select “Settings.”
7. Select “Notifications.”
8. Turn off all notification options here, including vibrate and sound options.9 If you have a Samsung device, you’ll also need to go to the Samsung Messages app and disable notifications there as well (this can be done in the same way as described above).

After completing these steps, your text message notifications should no longer be sent to another phone.

What Causes This Problem?

If you’re using an Android phone, there are a few different things that could be causing your text messages to go to another phone. One possibility is that you have your text messages forwarded to another phone. To check if this is the case, open the Settings app on your Android phone and tap on “Messages.” Then, look for the “Forwarding” setting. If this setting is turned on, it will list the phone number that your texts are being forwarded to.

Another possibility is that you’re using a third-party messaging app that’s not properly configured. For example, if you’re using WhatsApp to send and receive text messages, you’ll need to make sure that WhatsApp is set as your default messaging app. To do this, open the Settings app on your Android phone and tap on “Apps.” Then, find WhatsApp in the list of installed apps and tap on it. Finally, make sure that the “Default App” setting is turned on.

If you’re still having trouble with your text messages going to another phone, it’s possible that there’s an issue with your SIM card. In this case, you’ll need to contact your carrier for help troubleshooting the problem.


If you find that your text messages are going to another phone, it is likely because you have your SIM card in the wrong slot. If your SIM card is in the right slot, then it is possible that your phone has been cloned and someone else has your phone number. To prevent this from happening, be sure to keep your phone locked with a PIN or password and avoid sharing your phone number with anyone.
