    Hi ,

    I have got a strange problem with my HTC Desire HD phone . I m getting pop up message of my location every 10 seconds and due to this i had to switch off my notifications . Every time this message comes it gives me a option of save and cancel . I tried doing both cancel and save but it doesn't work either ways . i removed the battery sim card , deleted many applications but still same . Its too annoying . I tried to save it and block it too with sms blacklist apps but it still comes . I switched of my location in maps apps but still it comes and it happened after i did the system update message that i got on my phone . Currently the software on my phone is 3.12.405.1

    Anyone can help me get rid of this issue pls .

    If you head to Settings -> Call and turn off Cell Broadcast, does that sort?

    I have the exact same problem. It is especially bad when I am driving around. I have now turned off the "cell broadcast" setting. Really hope this works. It is driving me insane!!!:mad:

    I've been having this problem on the desire HD ever since I installed the latest updates in December (Vodafone). So so annoying! Just tried unchecking cell broadcast and hope that works! Hope they fix it in the next update. Many thanks.

    I figured it out!!! I don't know if anyones had this problem lately but I have and it was because i used my old Samsung charger!!!! The whole time I had it plugged in I had these problems!!! And I called telus and yelled about it and when I unplugged it to do so.. no more locations bull... If your not using a diff charger then no clue but if you are... BUY A NEW ONE!

    hello everyone.
    Well i guess i ve joined late and the above issues are quite old but still i would like to provide a solution to it

    In HTC device, Go to Phone or Call option >> settings>> Cell Broadcasting (uncheck it)

    you will stop receiving messages from "50" number

    Thanks
    Shanky
