    Has anybody found a way to turn off the CB# in messages on the S3? It's really annoying me and I haven't been able to find a way to shut it off. They're only on messages from other people, even some who have their CB# turned off. I'm on Verizon if that means anything. Feel free to move this if it's posted in the wrong area. Thanks!

    Same here. After JB upgrade started seeing callback #s from someone who i just texted before the upgrade. Cannot figure out how to turn them off.

    I've only been able to get rid of it by telling people to disable their CB# display. Luckily people with it enabled have been the exception.

    To fix this you first need to be rooted and have a root browser. Then go into root browser and go to system/etc/feature_default.xml then scroll until you find the line <CscFeature_Message_CBMessage>true</CscFeature_Message_CBMessage>
    Change it to this
    Then save and back out to the system folder and delete the CSC folder and reboot. Then you shouldn't have the cb# anymore!
