    I'm new, posted a question a few days ago. Thanks. I had an old Samsung and now up to Galaxy J3, which is enough for me for now. I had a few apps, mostly CNN, imdb and a few others. Now I want to install those apps but I get this msg:

    Google will send a one-time text message to confirm that xxxxxxx is yours. Standard rates apply.

    What is this about? Standard rates? Do I have to pay google something? Can't I just install apps like I did before, with no "standard rates." The wording is a little vague as well.

    Probably the standard text messaging rate you have with your carrier ;)

    Exactly. Some cell plans have unlimited messaging, and some plans have a fixed number of messages included per month. Some actually count your texts sent and received, and charge you accordingly... and that's what this refers to. If you have a generous (or unlimited) text allowance, you can safely disregard this notification.

    :)
