Do you notice the text comes in at a particular time?  I know that whenever I sign off of my instant messenger program on my computer, I get a BREW text message for no reason.  The only thing I could figure out is that it's a holdover from when I used to use IM on my feature phone (I've had a smart phone for about four years now and have gotten the text messages ever since I switched).


Unfortunately, if you're in the same boat that I am, I haven't been able to find a way around it.  I've called tech support several times over the last few years, and no one seems to know what's going on or how to stop it.

Thank you for the information enyalius. Additionally, I would like to add is that this issue can be caused by a Mobile e-mail account. These text alerts you're getting are email notifications from the Mobile E-mail application. Once the subscription is canceled, removed and cleared from the system these messages should stop. Please send me a private message with your name and mobile number for further assistance.


Thank you,
