    I use to get that type of message when I had my i5 on sprint after I rebooted my phone I see two on the same day one at 9:50 and the other at 11 something did you restart your phone at those times ?

    Someone told me it's lost messages from your carrier

    This,I believe is someone/something
    trying to contact you using your e mail address on the wrong system.
    I had a series of these from a friend, so I could ask wtf, and it turned out that my e mail address had been entered in his contacts as my text address (I don't know how !) it also seems that who/whatever is doing this on your phone is not on your
    contact list, because that will show up reguardless, so forget it !

    ahhhh. that's an interesting possibility. but you figure at some point the person sending the messages would call or email or do something else, after not getting a response.
    weird.
    thanks.

    hmm. seems like att only so far. The fact that it's specific to one carrier must be a clue. att support has been so help. I just want to be sure it's not something nefarious.
