Question

sent text messages

Okay so this is a little strange. ..at least from my perspective. Have Google and come up with very little so would appreciate help if anyone can. I woke up the other morning...open logs to phone other half and saw a name I am not at all familiar with in my log. A text message had been sent from my phone after I had fallen asleep. No record of the message in inbox just on logs. It was a five digit number not recognised when phoned. Can anyone shed any light on this? I have the number and the name . Not very technical so would appreciate anything. Thanks guys Happy

That someone will be at your carrier.

Almost all the folk I met at the ATT, Tmobile and Sprint counters know about short messages.

It appears that some apps use that 5 digit code

As I didn't write the app I can't guess why. I have theories since I do write apps but my answer would only be a guess. These short codes are usually carrier specific so ask Tmobile or other what it is for.
