Weird Text Message

All

 

Had a text message saying

 

Hi. It looks like you recently sent a text to an International number for the first time.

Just as a heads-up, this sort of message isn't included in your tariff.

To check your charges and stay on top of your bill, head to 

 

I have checked my useage so far this month and it doesn't appear on the forecast how do I find out what the number was as I don't think I have sent anyone an international text ?

 

Thanks

Steve

Re: Weird Text Message

Check your sent messages on your phone. You can call customer care and they should be able to locate the usage on the account.

Re: Weird Text Message

Some apps can send a silent text message for registration purposes (iPhones for iMessage and Whatsapp etc).
These can be sent to international numbers but do not cost you. If you've downloaded a new app recently it could be that the system is picking up on.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

If nothing is showing up in out of allowance charges in myO2 I wouldn’t worry about it
