Notifications question

So, I just got the HTC One Google Play edition, and i love it. However, I am on ATT with it, and the service isnt great around me. I send a lot of texts, but whenever i send one, I almost immediately get a notification that it has failed sending. Then sometimes i get two or three more before the text finally sends on its own. I dont mind having texts take 30 seconds to send, but I REALLY mind having a notification every 3 seconds while its trying to send saying that it failed. Is there any way to make this stop?

using the stock messages app, by the way
