I think I know what's going on.

It's Verizon notifying you that you have mail. seriously

If you create an email account using the predefined choices your mail is replicated on Verizon's server.

They implemented this back when the incredible 2 came out.

To solve this problem delete the email accounts on your phone.

Re create them using the "Other" option.

I believe this will stop the 6250 texts. And your email isn't on Verizon's servers.

I think I was the first guy to run into this way back when.

I hope it works

It is related to either Backup Assistant Plus or a mobile email on your previous phone.  Have you tried a search on this community to see what other suggestions were given to those customers? You can start with the discussions lists to the right of this thread under the "More like this" heading.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I'm sure receiving these messages have become very frustrating!  I would love to help you stop these messages!

Sounds as though your account is either provisioned for Backup Assistant Plus or the Cloud Storage service, but haven't set it up on this device.  If you're not looking to sync data with either of these services, log into your My Verizon account online at www.vzw.com.  Hover over "My Verizon" at the top, and under the "My Plans & Services" section click on "Change Features".  Select the device you would like to remove the service from.  Scroll down to "Cloud Storage for Media/Email" and "Backup Assistant Plus" and click "Remove".  Scroll to the bottom and click "Next" and ensure "today" is selected as the date of change, and "Submit" changes.  You should then stop receiving the text messages from 6250.  Let me know how this works out for you.  Thanks!

I dont think anyone went into depth enough to solve this issue. Here is how I resolved my situation

By now most of us know that the message stems from Backup Assistant.

First Step: Visit this link and sign in there a link that says already subscribed click here to got to the sign in page

http://www.verizonwireless.com/wcms/consumer/products/backup-assistantplus.html

Second Step: Under Existing Customers, click on the link that says Manage Your Content

The next step will depend on if you've ever logged into you account, most of us haven't so your going to have to click on Setup now.

Third Step: The next step will depend on if you've ever logged into you account, most of us haven't so your going to have to click on Get Started.

Fourth Step: There should be three different types of content separated under Online Storage, Your Phone number, and Your Email Address. Under your Email address (or addresses in my case) there will be an option to delete them, if you want 6250 to go to hell, you click on that! The confirmation of you doing it correctly will be the last message you will ever receive from 6205 saying VZWUEP: DELETE

I am doing this off of memory, if anyone does this can you amend anything that might be off a little bit

I have found that the only thing that works is to download GoSMS and use the blacklist to block the 6250 number the next time you get it. Even if you don't want to use GoSMS for texting, it will blacklist the VZW 6250. I'm sure there are other apps that will do the same thing. I have never been able to successfully disable the Backup Assistant.

I've gone to the My VZW site several times and disabled BUA...it never "sticks" and several days/weeks later the VZW 6250 texts return.
