I have a weird thing happening with 2d txt. I'm on a free txts plan but I'm not a big user. I've noticed that each monthly bill sometimes has charges for pxts that I don't remember sending (I avoid using SMS for photos when WhatsApp is free). My current 2d account for the month so far shows:
Now I only sent one message on 11 Nov, and one on 4 Nov, but there are 2 for each date showing. Looking at the 11 Nov pair:
I seem to have been charged twice for a PXT I never sent in the first place. Note that these two entries are identical (apart from one listing my number, and one listing the number I called). The timestamp is identical and corresponds exactly to the time I sent the txt. SMS's could get really expensive if this keeps up.
Now I have been mulling this over as I typed it, as you do, and I offer these thoughts, (but comment is of course welcomed):
- I have a gravatar attached to my GMail account. I am using the Pulse SMS app for Android, and I notice that my avatar shows next to my conversation contributions, whereas some of my contacts show their avatar, some just show the coloured circle with an initial inside. Maybe I'm getting charged to send my avatar as a PXT?
- Sometimes when I reply to a message, Pulse seems to think I might like a copy of the text sent to me, even though I just sent it. This could explain the doubling up.
Any thoughts please?
