I have an Alcatel Onetouch flip phone. I started using Ting last weekend and since then, I have received upwards of 30 blank text messages every day from a number of my friends who are smart phone users. Often, I will get 2-3 blank texts at the same time each day (i.e. I get 2 blank texts from one of my friends every day at 2:20 a.m. and 2:21 a.m. and 3 blank texts every day from the same friend at 4:50 p.m., 4:51 p.m., and 4:52 p.m.). The fact that I'm receiving a specific number of blank text bubbles at regular exact intervals makes me think that these are not messages that are being sent and missed, but that this has something to do with the functionality between their phones and mine. I am being charged by Ting for these texts. Please help me figure out how to stop receiving 30 blank texts (and increasing) every day. Thank you!
20-30 blank texts every day
