    DCB == Direct Carrier Billing.

    You are somehow signed up for some product or service that will be added to your phone bill. They are looking for you to verify by texting the code (737610) back to them and whatever you signed up for will be activated and the cost will show on your bill or if you don't know what it is or don't want to pay for it, text back "STOP."

    These can be sneaky and can add up quickly on your bill. I've often seen them with "free" ringtones or contests. Depending on your carrier you can disable Premium Messaging which will prevent anyone from cramming charges onto your bill.

    Not here - reply to the text message on your cell phone with STOP.
