Topic # 105688 7-Jul-2012 23:34 Send private message

I've just been checking my mobile phone account for June and find some 50 text messages to international numbers with 44 prefix.  all relatively cheap on my plan, but I know they haven't been sent by anyone using the phone.  The  phone has been used for Facebook based games including Slottomania, Bejewelled Blitz, Diamond Dash and Bubble speed.

Anyone heard of any of these sending texts, or what else it could be?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Charlie

Have you got a iphone4 or 4S and been playing around with Facetime or imessage?

I am sure if you put these +44 numbers into Google you will find the answer

Thanks John, I was barking up the wrong tree. Apologies to Facebook & there games/apps. Although all the google search results appeared to be foreign language, the translations pointed to FaceTime activation.

I'll switch the discussion to 2 degrees or iOS, although I see this topic was done to death a few years ago in the apple forum.

Thanks for the suggestion.
