I have an old Vodafone i580 with a Skinny SIM in it for  somewhere to keep it at present.  Every time I turn on the fone it sends a SMS to  my fones with XT and 2D SIMS in them with " +64204 Skinny number (time stamp) Keep this message Sender: Paul galaxy 3 EMEI: XXXXXXXXXXXX  which is the EMIE of the i580.  Both of these other fones have at one stage had the Skinny SIM in them  but my Galaxy S3 with a Vodafone SIM in does not receive this message even though it  has had the Skinny SIM in at some stage..

Any ideas.  It's not a biggy as the i580 is a spare fone..

Its a secuirty featre you have set on the handset when SIM is changed for it to send the SMS not related to Skinny in anyway

Working as designed and feature activated

Thanx John. Your not only a pretty face. Yes looks like I had turned on mobile tracker at some stage of playing with it. Lucky I had written down the password in my diary..
