    Hey,

    Im a new user of the HTC tattoo and i find to be a great value for money,
    i got used to the android OS pretty fast and i think it's great, but there's
    one thing that's really buging me, the tattoo or gps or whatever it is keeps sending me messages where i am, it keeps sending me my location and i get around 10 messages per night not counting the ones i get in the day and it's very annoying, can anyone please help me. I've searched everywhere to disable this option but i can't find anywhere.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the android forums!

    I've not come across this problem before, sounds very strange. Have you installed any 3rd party applications of the market at all?

    in the standard sms app, press menu, then select settings, scroll down until you get to "CB settings", and un tick "CB activation"

    Cheers
