Mobile data usage is checked at the end of the month by calling #3282. Today, three messages arrived about the time of the data request. The first in no particular order was a new more detailed data usage text message. Then two messages followed on a different number, 900080004000. They read as follows:
Verison Msg: INTL IN US MESSAGING: This line SENT.
Verizon Msg: INTL IN THE US SHARED MESSAGING: SENT
Can anyone explain the second two messages and maybe explain why they came from a different phone number?
We certainly understand wanting to know more with these new messages, EarthBuffalo. It is uncommon to get an alert back from a different number, but it can occur with you sending your message out first for your usage. The two later messages you received would indicate a line had sent international messages. Though most of our current and recent grandfathered plans include unlimited international messaging in the US at no additional cost.
I'm very concerned about Mobile data usage number #3282 or #data. The messages are sent to my phone because #3282 is dialed on the phone and Verizon sends a data usage summary. Just recently, Verizon appears to be sending the data to an unknown international destination in addition to my phone? I would really like to know what is happening, because #DATA seems like a security risk at this point. If anyone can explain, their efforts would be much appreciated.
Your security is one of our top priorities! We definitely want to get to the bottom of this ASAP! We will be sending you a Private Note, so we can further assist you. MoniqueH_VZW
