    Blackberry Junk Mail... or what?

    Advertisement



    So i have an 8310 titanium curve from AT&T and i seem to be getting junk mail, or what i believe to be junk text.
    I get incoming mail into my "messages" folder every now and then and they come in groups of 3 or 4 from a sender with a name/display name that doesn't make sense with messages that don't make any sense either.

    at first i thought it was an email problem, but every time i get those messages, i go to my at&t email inbox, as well as my gmail inbox, and they're not there. i don't sync my gmail anymore, i just use the google mobile service applications, so i'm pretty sure it's not my gmail.

    so where are they coming from and how are they getting to my phone?
    was i right about them being texts?

    does anyone else with a curve have or had this problem? and does anyone know the solution?
    maybe it's just an at&t thing?

    if anyone could help it'd be greatly appreciated.

    I get these all the time but mine is due to having my email box tied in with my bb. I'm not sure where yours would be coming from unless you get your email on your phone.

    What is the "To" field showing in the email or msg on your BB? This is how you can find out what email it is going to.
    I get a ton of these from my work email which has absolutely NO spam filters and I can't stand it. I wake up every day to about 20 cialis/viagra emails....*sigh*

    I received over 100 emails on my BB today, none of which showed up on any of my accounts accessed via a computer. They all came in at once and had my phone vibrating uncontrollably. Not sure if this is mass-spam, but it was quite annoying.

    I get these same annoying texts, as well. They aren't email, but text messages, with 3 numbers. There is no messages but I'll get 3 to 4 a day by the same number. It's usually from 129 or 721, something like that. The last time I received these messages, I texted stop and I haven't had any since.

    Hey rawmeats; I also have ATT. When I first got my BB I also had what I believe to be the same problem you have got and it took me forever to figure it out. The numbers showing and the message I got stated that it was a BB update, and something to the effect of "don't delete move or .... this message." IF that is what you are getting what happened is your Desktop Manager is set to BES (BB Enterprise Server not BIS BB Internet Service) Unfortuantely (only because it takes a few minutes to do) uninstall your desktop manager and reinstall it choosing the BIS option when it shows. That will take care of it. Syncing etc. will commence as usual- (don't forget to re set up your folders in manager).

    Good luck!

    no, sorry stephen...
    my messages don't say "don't delete move or ... this message" nor do they state that they're a BB update...

    they're messages from a 5 digit number that have no point to them,

    they almost look like someone got a keyboard and did this:
