Default [Q] Anyone know what text messages from 8737 are for ?

I am constantly receiving text message from 8737 with meaningless contain. It starts show up after I rooted my phone. This is an example of the message

//LL:1563:1322059716115:R1U:C:dkCO1rg3+3ZS8R8UQL+LqA ==:8NSXA9VKJUSS2IZSE6M07HD9ZIX9RBKU

Does anyone know what this is ? I would like to find out more before I restore the stock rom / call Sprint support.

Thanks

Do you have Go SMS installed? If so, it's that app. Not quite sure just WHY it does it, but nothing to worry about.

I had the same problem with Go SMS and being rooted.
There is a way to shut it off it is buried in the settings and something about I believe it was in receive settings and I unchecked "Disable other message notification" I believe that is what stopped it for me.

You got voice mail. It's stuff that is handled in the back ground by android...turned off block other sms pop up s. Got 8 vm. I've known it for a while almost forgot. The feature is lane in go sms cause it doesn't say point blank what happened.

I get them now and then and I dont have Go SMS installed. I do have Handcent, but I think they are LOS related. Seems like after a LOS happens and I reboot is when I get them.

It is not a GoSMS problem. I have gotten them on stock messaging app. I just block that # in GoSMS and problem solved. I'm sure Handcent has the same feature to block #'s.

It does, I just wanted to point out its not a GoSMS thing only, or a 3rd party SMS app for that matter.

Correct, think of it as the 3pty app's server pinging the app. It happens all the time, but if the app was working correctly we would never see these unknown text messages being received by the phone.

He said it's NOT a 3rd party messaging app issue. I know this to be a fact and wish people would stop claiming otherwise without knowing for sure. People without any 3rd party messaging app installed get these messages = Go SMS theory broken.

I'll have to agree Cordell12, I'm back to Rouges stock w/ CWM kernel and have yet to receive another one of these messages - also I haven't had a single LoS. When I used other kernels that suffered Los I would get these messages. Correlation? Seems to be.

I may be wrong but if this is the case I'm wondering why I have this issue on complete stock phone. I'm using handcent.
