Re: Strange Text Message

I have also been recieving thees strange texts. They are kind of creepy.

Re: Strange Text Message

Been getting those for about a week now myself. No number associated and it's coming straight through the messaging app on my phone. Which is odd since I have my number linked through google voice, a text should be coming through GVoice app or at least show up on page when I log in.

Re: Strange Text Message

This is actually do to the commerical mobile alert system.  The new nationwide alerts that are smart phones are already enable for, even without our knowledge.  I have been getting them too.  Haven't found a way to disable or opt out of it yet.  Lots of sites say its possible but no one says how to do it.
