Samsung Soul weird text message

I keep getting a weird text message on my phone from the number 200 - with the message 020. Everytime I delete it, i keep getting more. Any idea what this message means?

Cheers

Try replying with STOP or STOP ALL. Have you been buying anything like ringtones or games using your phone to pay?

You may be getting charged to receive these, so check you account.

There is no option to reply to the text message. And they seem to always come through when i receive other text messages.

Hi Lise, I can't find anything on this. I hope you are not getting any charges for these.
Have you signed up for any services like ring-tones? Only thing I can suggest is ring Customer Services and check it's nothing from them.

Sorry I can't be more helpful. Smiley Sad

Sounds like you have got cell broadcast reception switched on and it is telling you the local area dialling code (020) where you are.

I don't know Samsung phones so you will need to play with it or, dare I say, read the manual Smiley Very Happy
