Re: virus style text messages from my phone

What do you mean by a "virus style" text message?  While I have not downloaded the application as I did not like its description at App World is there a setting you have to make for the application to do what it is designed to do?  If I understand the app it among other things gives you a voice transcription of incoming text messages.

 

As this apparently started after your download you might want to contact the application support people.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

Open the application via settings, press advanced, scroll to Auto-respond to TXTs , uncheck the box.

If you have a check mark on the respond, you also have the ability to add your personal message.

You might consider unchecked two other boxes for  reposes to email and especially for  updating your Twitter status.

 

I have used the product since DEC. Only because I had a hole in my Christmas money pocket.Smiley Very Happy

I haven't had a problem with it., very stable.

Thanks.
