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

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..
