    I got billed for two international SMSes sent to +1-760-5370537 on Dec 29. From Googling, this is Google Voice's number.

    Does touching the Voice app automatically sends out secret SMSes to Google? They do not appear in my call log.

    Thanks.

  2. Hmmm, that does not sound like it should be happening. Just because it is a Google Voice number does not mean it is going "to Google" (officially). Lots of people have Google Voice numbers. It is possible you have an app sending it out--check which apps have permissions to send text messages. I have never had my own Google Voice or any other program automatically send out a text message unless I asked it to.

    Hmmm, just checked, and the same thing has happened to me, numerous messages sent out.

    Question for you: are you actually set up with Google Voice? I'm not, but was trying to. Every time it would attempt to "Verify my phone number" it would fail, so I assume it sent an SMS at that point to try and verify it.
