It should be gone but a reboot never hurts.


More on this here:




I think it's only supposed to send a text if the sim is changed.

I think your teminology might be a little off:


Reboot - turn phone off and back on

restore/reformat/reset - restore it back to factory defaults.


If you meant ("do i need to restore"), i wouldn't jump straight into it as its a bit of a pain re-downloading your apps etc. Give it some time and see how you get on... If it's still sending the messages try clearing the cache then a factory reset. 


On the off chance you did mean "reboot/restart", then yes it wouldn't hurt to turn it back off and on again. Hope that makes sense!
