I need help plz I have a note 3 n9005 I live in Australia and somebody one of my kids or wife or somebody keeps texting the number 826862432 from my mobile. I try ring it says number not connected but I can text the number with no reply. I have rang all major phone carriers and they say its a third party number. they say you will find it in google. most say its a sex or dateing number. but I cant seem to find anything. if anybody can recommend an app or find out exactly what this number is I will be in debt forever. thanks

I can't help with the number but one very important thing to check is to look after some rogue app (probably hidden as something benign, like a free ringtone app or something) that does the messaging - something like App Ops X might help.

Oh, and about the number - in many countries numbers that take money from you (by SMS or calls) must be registered with a central authority - check for that in your country and contact it!

O. Don't forget about anti virus software.
You can try DR.Web or similar & scan your phone.
