Can you please tell me what these silent text messages are from my phone to this premium 9017 number? They happen at early hours in the morning and I've only just noticed them as free premium messages on my bill.  

 

My SMS totals are very high each month but it's not me actually sending the messages.  In fact my sent messages on my phone show this as there is no history of interaction.

 

Can I get some Info around this please?

Is there anyway to block my phone from sending messages to this number?

Weirdly enough I wasn't charged for any.  It appears to have been happening since march.  Really strange
