    Hi guys,

    I've got a strange situation and I've got no idea how to resolve it. This has been happening since I got my phone and while it's a big annoyance, it's not phone-breaking.

    When anyone calls my phone and I miss the call I get an sms from the phone carrier stating I have a missed call. The thing is though, that for some reason the phone says that this is coming from someone on my friend's list. For simplicity I'll call her Jane. Anyway, I don't have Jane's number in my phone at all. If I go to the phone book though, it shows her Facebook picture and if I got to her contact card it shows all her numbers as being listed as "private". It also shows things like her date of birth (which it must have inmported from facebook). Strange thing is, it also shows her number as not being linked to anything. If I click on the link button and choose to link her to a Facebook contact she doesn't even appear on the list of people I can link the contact to.

    I'm very confused and would love to know what I can do to fix this so that I don't keep getting messages from Jane, when it's really just my telco telling me I have a missed call?

    The facebook issue is well documented in many threads here.

    I apologise, I didn't realise this was shown in another thread alread. I did a search, but couldn't find this situation listed.

    EDIT: Not to be a pain, but any possibility you could link me to a thread with this problem listed so I can follow it there?
