Blank Text messages - Tmobile USA ??? What gives
All day today I have been recieving blank text messages. There is no number associated with the text and there is no message in the text. The other wierd thing is they are dated either December 31, 1965 or September 12, 2012.
I have confirmed this is happening to one other person I know that has an unlocked iphone on tmobile in the USA.
Both phones were unlocking using QuickPwn for windows. Firmware 2.2.1, 2g phones.
Anyone know whats going on?
Thanks in advance!
Figured out the problem...
I just spoke with T-mobile. Apparently they have been making updates to their software in the T-mobile system over the past few weeks. Part of the updates they did were to the speed up the internet on the network, but in the process they screwed up the voicemail notifier settings. They told me it is not a priority to fix it since the problem is only happening on phones they do not currently offer. I reminded them that there are many of us loyal customers out there that decided to stay with t-mobile and spend $$ on unlocked iphones instead of making the switch to AT&T and that they should try to fix the bug to avoid losing us. They said to give it a week and they will be making improvements to the software on their end.
The only solution for the time being is to have T-mobile disable the voicemail notification. In this case you will no longer receive any text messages or a dot indicator when you receive a voicemail. **I do suggest for everyone having the same problem to call T-mobile and remind them you are a loyal customer and would appreciate them fixing the bug. If they receive enough of us complaining about the same issue I am sure they will be more willing to fix the problem quicker. **
A bit relieved and a bit annoyed
I am rather elated that someone has figured out what the F was going on with the VMS notification always on and then the text message thing as well. I just got my jail broken 2g iphone about 2 days ago. I noticed this issue almost immediately after I got it and thought that I may have gotten ripped off...nice to know this is not the case.
I am calling T-mobile to complain as well. We pay good money and they need us more than we need them.
Not sure if anyone else has experienced another issue, "echo problem on the receivers end?" If so, I did some research and found out that it is because the volume is too loud on the iphone. What I did is I called someone and adjusted the volume on the headset until they no longer received the echo. Hoping this will help anyone else out that has the same issue.
One other thing: How do I delete apps. that don't have an X next to them?
