    IM is automatically loaded when I start my phone. I don't use it, but don't see a way to uninstall or shut that off.

    Also, I occssionally get these odd sms messages. I looked one up on the web and it said it had to do with IM. How can I stop all this IM stuff?

    I heard of this app Startup Auditor that may be able to help or maybe you can try an Task killer that will automatically kill it :)

    Do you by chance have Sprint? And are you seeing 9106 messages?

    I've been getting them, about one a day now. I responded to the first one, which said something like " respond to this to continue to get sms" or something to that effect. I looked it up on Google, and supposedly its a Sprint thing, but I'm not sure at this point if it's spam, or info gathering, or what. If I continue to get it, is there a way to turn it off, or block it?
