message from Number 200???

Anonymous

I keep getting a text message on my mobile from number 200 (approx 10-15 per day) the text message just shows a few area codes i.e 0151, 01744,01695. The text message also has a small speaker symbol rather than the usual envelope. Has anyone got any ideas how i stop these messages?

Is your phone a samsung by any chance?

Its an old feature that when turned on just gives you local area codes, its been around since the old days of paying different rates for local and national numbers.

Unfortunatly the only way that you can get rid of it, to my knowledge is to do a software flash on the phone.

Hope this helps.

You don't need to do a software reflash. All you need to do is go to messages - text messages and then broadcast messages. Make sure that is set to OFF and then bobs your uncle!
