This is quite a strange one. I have notification that comes from Vodafone about my casual data usage, basically warning on reaching my 10MB quota. I don't have that number in my Contacts/People list so it appears as one of my Facebook people! I am yet to confirm this but I'm guessing this FB person is the first in the alphabet without a phone number - not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Does anyone receive this kind of notification from VF? If so, what does it appear as?

Cheers,
D.

... have had this a few times from Vodafone
"As @ *date time* your daily data usage has passed 10MB. This alert is a guide only for casual data usage. Free TXT 'STOP' to 795 to opt out of this msg."
... I don't have them in my contacts either... I believe Vodafone are able to spoof SMS so can change the senderID... http://www.smsspoofing.com/

Getting this also! Tried a few times to fix but no luck.

For me it comes from the number '750' may try making a contact with that as its contact number maybe ...
