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

The name is Ralph. ..that my phone sent a text to. The number is 72574. There is no record of nessage/contact. I have had no calls or any other interaction from it. I have no games etc installed on phone only Facebook and banking app. Any ideas? Should I be worried?

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

In reply to: thankyou

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.

Thanks for the advice...as i said not very techy. Got a bit paranoid about viruses etc. Will contact my provider then. Happy
