    Did you recently change from a phone that had mobile web, email, VCAST, or VZ Nav?

    If you did, those are automated messages noticing that you no longer have those features active. It's some weird glitch from upgrading from the old plans to these current plans.

    I received three the day after I activated my DINC. Turns out it came from Mobile Email, VCAST, and VZ Nav for me. I replied "stop" to each and called VZW to make sure it stopped those features completely.

    Exactly, I came from a LG Dare that had that stuff, but wonder why it's using my yahoo id instead of my log in though? anyways I'll start replying with STOP, thanks again.

    Verizon Customer Service had me go into my Yahoo Messenger preferences on my computer not my phone and disable the feature to use my mobile phone to receive messages. Also, I disabled any yahoo messenger mobile alerts there were setup with my old LG Dare. I have no idea how the alerts were setup, but it seemed to do the trick. I haven’t received one damn ‘//BREW…’ message since. I have a Droid Incredible.
