Default strange pin messages

Please Login to Remove!

I have been getting strange pin messages since about 2am. the text looks like a garble and I have no idea who they are coming from since I don't give out my pin # for bbim.

is something up w/ t-mobile? this phone came factory sealed from them so I don't think its a case of someone messaging the wrong pin. just seems odd.

You would know where the PIN messages are from because at the top of the PIN message it will say FROM and a PIN or a Name. If believe it is harassment you need to, carry the issue to your carrier. If simply a mistake, reply back to the sender to cease and desist.

right-I don't recognize the pin #. I responded:
"I believe you are trying to contact the wrong person. Please stop sending me these messages"

that was about 7 this morning. I've gotten 5 more. can t-mo block the pin?

dont think you can block a PIN. cannot block text messages why would you be able to block something that has nothing to do with Tmo?

I bet they stop or get bored pretty soon if you don't respond or threaten them with the "Federal Unwanted Illegal Communications Act of 2007" (lol, i just made that up).

TMo can't block PIN messages.
