Android Update 3.2.5 - SMS with Location

Contributor
1 of 6

Hi all,

 

I received an Android update yesterday on my htc desire s. The update has added some brilliant new stuff.

 

HOWEVER

 

Since the update I keep getting SMS from 50 with the location of the phone

 

for example BASEL SUED OST

 

Anyone got any ideas?

You R correct, but with the HTC Desire HD it looks and is named a bit different.

 

Go to

Menu > Setting > Call > Other call settings:

Take the tick out of the Cell Broadcast tick box

 

Works a treat!

 

Cheers,

Maybe you have to uncheck CB activation.

Messaging> Menu button> Settings

Yo TuxOne,

 

Thanks heaps.

 

I suspected it would be something like that and have been looking for a place to switch these types of messages off. Unfortunatly on my HTC Desire HD I could not finde antyhing that would allow me to either switch off the Cell Display or the push notifications.

 

SO unfortunatly your solution does not work on my HTC desire.

😞

thanks for the feedback.

 

Looks like the manufacturers customize even the settings.

Using a Samsung Tablet 10.1 based on Android 3.1

 

I tweaked for fun some options and was suddenly receiving empty cell broadcasts CBSMS at 04:00.

 

I suggest you start the Android Messaging App, and then look for Settings in the menu.

You should find several "broadcast" / CB  type of options.   Just deactivate them.  At this time to the best of my knowledge no services have ever been published to use this feature in Switzerland.
