    Hi, i have an HTC Incredible S. I've had this handset for about a year now and love it btw. A week or two ago it upgraded to android 2.3.5 and since then ive had a wierd problem that Vodafone cant help me with.
    I leave my house every day to head out. At a certain point on my train journey i receive a message saying "028" but its not like a normal text , this is in a small box which says "save" or "delete". So i either save,delete or ignore and seconds later i get another and then another. This continues until im returning home and pass the same point geographically . This gets on my nerves because im trying to listen to my tunes on the phone. My wi-fi / 3G ,blue tooth is all turned off. I've written to HTC but while i wait for a responce, probably unhelpfull im guessing , i thought id try a forum. Has anyone els come across this problem... Cheers :)

    Thank you for contacting HTC regarding your Incredible S

    I understand that you are currently experiencing difficulties with [ADD CONTENT].

    It would seem that Cell broadcast has enabled itself during the update, to disable this please carry out the following steps;

    To turn Cell Broadcast messages on or off, do the following:

    1. From the home screen, tap Menu.
    2. Tap Settings.
    3. Tap Call.
    4. Scroll down and uncheck Cell Broadcast.

    Thank you for this solution to the SMS 50 & location calls, they have been most annoying. The forum is great way to resolve problems!
