International Text Msg

I got charged for international text messaging to UK every month on my sprint touch diamond. But I swear that I never send any text messaging to UK. I called sprint customer support - they couldn't offer any help.

Anyone can help me with this problem? Thanks very much.

Re: International Text Msg

Only other thing I can think of is that you are using a program on your phone that is sending these messages without you knowing.

Re: International Text Msg

Wow, the mystery UK txt? I would recommend backing up all data and reflashing. Try it out for a little while and see if the TXT charges are recurring on the next bill. If not, problem solved. If so, tell sprint to "eff themselves." Or something to that effect.

Re: International Text Msg

You could also be a victim of ESN cloning and someone is using your ESN to send out texts on another phone. Long shot, but make sure you check your bill and when you call they can tell you exactly what time they were sent and to what number, even if you haven't gotten your bill yet. I've never had any experience as a victim or participant in ESN cloning, but somebody can take the ESN off your phone and assign it to another device by hacking it, and both phones can allegedly be used at the same time, so even if you're using your phone as normal and it's powered on and in use, they can still send texts from another phone using your ESN.

Unhappy Re: International Text Msg

I had the same problem last month. I had 18 international txt messages. Sprint could not tell me who or when they were sent. I find that ridiculous. I don't know ANY international phone numbers so I know it wasn't me.

Like someone else mentioned I wonder if it is a program sending the messages. Do you have any programs by a non U.S. programmer?
