I'm pretty sure its part of the actual text itself. Only way to get rid of it is to tell the people texting you to remove the callback option in their text

I was wondering the same thing. My wife's EnV Touch never sent a CB number with texts when I had an EnV Touch, but now, every text has that darn CB number on it.I have also noticed that smartphone users text messages do not have the CB number listed, as I have a few friends with Droids and I-Phones,and there's no CB number on their texts.

I think most "dumb" phones have an option to send a callback number by default when texting.

The only fix I found was a different device... I know that sounds silly, but this was one of a few things that irritated me about Ally...

Its supposed to get 2.2 in Febuary, maybe it will be addressed...

Its a result of other dumb phones (Feature Phones) and they automatically add the CB. So unless you get your friends to turn it off on their phones it wont go away.

Iv actually started using Google Voice as my texting service as its free... Try it out.

I may give that a try. I will need to use it soon anyway due to the fact that verizon no longer offers a truly unlimited text plan and my fiance is switching to sprint which will cause me to go over their 5000 message cap to non-verizon phones (i know i text entirely too much).

It just sucks that I did not realize this about the callback number until after I got the phone because that would have been something that might have swayed my decision. I guess we can just cross our fingers for 2.2

They don't offer an unlimited text add-on anymore, but for $20-30 more (depending on individual or family plan) you can upgrade from a Talk plan to Talk and Text, which has unlimited (for real) text, picture, and video message. See here: Set Your Location

Thats really expensive. Why pay that when you could use Google voice with your data plan and have unlimited texting free?

This is, of course, another option. I have 5 lines on my plan, not all have a data plan, so we have the unlimited option anyway.

I notices that even on my Pro the callback # is still there in the corner of the text in stock mode... I use Handcent SMS and it doesnt show in that...

ah okay I did not know that.. I didn't look past the add on text plans.

As for me, with the callback # issue, it still does it whether I am using the stock messaging app, handcent, or chomp.
