    Text msg? They're getting weird. I hate to see spam txt msgs come along!

    I got one this am that said my ATM card had been disabled - call this number xxx-xxx-xxxx immediately to activate. I called the bank and, of course, it HAD NOT! Spam, spam and more spam. If you don't recognize the msg or the sender my advice is to ignore it. I forwarded the msg I got to US Bank Fraud Dept only because I had that address.

    I thought it might be some error message because I am getting it atleast once an hour for the past half a day and I just got the phone this morning.

    I just got my wife her bb,and she gets a text every half an hour or so from 9114 - the message seems to be all code,starting with the word BREW. I think it was from the activating of the e-mail set ups,and all the data. I did a battery pull,and it seems to have worked. Haven't received any texts since,and that was about 2 hours ago. Maybe give that a shot? Hope that helps!

    I guess you're with Verizon but this may apply somehow: I had a pre-paid AT&T account with NO data plan for a short while. I put the AT&T SIM in an unlocked Blackberry and, every hour or so I would get a text msg that said something like 'the last tranaction cost you $.23.' That went on for several hours.

    I figured out that it was trying to make a data connection every hour or so and charging me for each attempt. All the msgs stopped when I turned off "data services" but it was a puzzle for a while.

    Point is that your carrier may be sending you some msg based on an unsuccessful, but automatic, attempt that it is making. Are you still getting the messages?
