My partner has an HTC Sensation on 2 Degrees and recently did the Android 4 update.  Now he gets random txt messages from sender '50' that just says the area he's in (read on another topic on geekzone that this the Cell ID broadcast)

Can these message be stopped?

Thanks for the reply

Nothing in the message settings mentions cell broadcast?? There are settings for Notifications, Text messages, MMS messages and General - and none contain anything about cell broadcast...

Hi
On my HTC the option is under Settings -> Device -> Call -> Cell Broadcast -> "Disable receipt of CB messages"
Set this option to Checked and you should not receive anymore messages
