How to stop repeating text messages on my Alcatel phone?

My Consumer Cellular Alcatel A392CC flip phone keeps delivering the same text a friend sent me several days ago.  I received the same text about 16 times.  For example I just got it again at 10:28 PM and now at 2:45 AM.  We don't know how to stop this, and it is using up the amount of texts I get per month and pay for.  Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I suggest contacting your carrier. Looks like a network issue.
