    I am receiving text messages saying please call. One of the numbers I recognize as a person who calls often yet has the wrong number, tonight two messages came through from my landlords phone number which of coarse saved in my contacts. Anyone know whats happening here or have the same problem?

    It could be an automated txt. What I mean is sometimes the vm is setup with the ability to send a page instead of leaving a vm and what that does is send a txt identical to what you are describing. Try calling your phone from another phone of course and see if you get the option to page it and if so do it and see what happens. You may have to press * or # for more options sometimes that gives you the page option as well. Different carriers and different vm packages are set up differently.

    I wanted to also. But figured an explanation would help. Plus with the page thing I was talking about it sometimes looks like you get txts from a landline and not just cellphones.

    I left out a bit of info. The message from my landlord came at 12:30 A.M and, I called. He confirmed he had not called or text me. It does appear to be something automated in the sense that the PLEASE CALL is the same for all three numbers sent in capital letters and no other words. I just don't know what or why.

    Hi,

    maybe you have some sort of Malware on your phone or a "virus-like" thing.........Go to the Market and download one of the Free virus scanners...... I use "Avast", free and highly configurable........even remotely. Just an idea !

    Good luck.

    That is very weird like vce said it could be malware. If you tried what I suggested you will see that the PLEASE CALL sent in a page is usually all caps as well and I don't know about anyone else but i have experienced txt delays with boost from time to time sometimes taking a week or longer to get a txt as complex as "OK". No matter what it is I hope you get it figured out and taken care of.

    EDIT:
    Did all three txts come in at around the same time? And the number you recognized but was wrong what do you mean? Was that number in your contacts as well?
