    My LG G3 phone has been sending sms to 906592324290 number by its own in backround of the system. That is, there is nothing on sms application, all is in backround. I have tried hardreset and softreset and also it is not related to my mobile operator. It is all about my lg g3. Due to this problem, i've been paying at least 5 dollars more phone bill each month and there is no guarantee to pay 50 dollars more bill in following months. Please help me!!!

    No, when i did hard reset, i've set up phone as a new phone so i didn't let system to restore all previous apps again. I just use a few familiar apps such as younow, whatsapp, tunein radio...etc so i do not full my phone with applications.

    normally i use whatsapp to send message but in case of sending sms i use stock sms app. So shortly, after hardreset, i did not installed unknown or 3rd party application but notwithstanding i'm facing with same problem every month.

    So this is kind of a kluge of a solution but:
    1) Install the 'NetGuard' app from Google Play, it's a non-root firewall. Set it up to block that default texting app from any online access with both WiFi and cellular (mobile data).

    2) Go into your Settings >> Application manager and select that texting app. As it's a system app you won't be able to uninstall it but at least tap the 'Force stop' button and the 'Turn off' button if it's not greyed out.
    3) Since you usually use WhatsApp but still rely on a basic SMS/MMS app on occasion, install a third-party texting app. I'll recommend 'Signal Private Messenger' but there several viable alternatives.
