    Google Nexus S 4G receives strange text messages on every 5 minutes

    I am getting strange text messages on my newly bought Google Nexus S 4G after every 5 minutes. It is very difficult to understand those messages as it includes unknown symbols and characters. How can I stop getting these messages?

    Probably those might be some kind of push messages that might be appearing on the due to usage of the phone in another network. In order to disable the push messages navigate to messaging application from the application drawer and the press the menu button where you will have an option to disable the push messages. If the problem is still persistent the contact your network provider.
    Hope this Helps.

    Dear,

    Of course you can get rid of this meesage,
    You can report about this messages in your Customer care of Service provider.
    You can also Block this Number in order to not get any messages in future.
    Call Blocker is the best app for this purpose.

    You can't block a messsage if there is no number. I get the same thing it is always a bunch of letters mixed in with question marks inside a black diamond. I have called sprint 3 times they cannot do anything being that there is no number that the messages are coming from. They told me it is google that is doing it and if your google number is the default it will keep happening.

    If the problems remain same you need to contact your customer care for these unwanted messages

    And there is one another trick also:

    You must uncheck Auto retrieve mesages from Message setings

    Hope it will solve your problems

    The issue is caused by emergency alerts your phone doesnt know how to interpret. Sprint is working with Google on a fix. It happens on all carriers with the nexus s and only when there are emergency alerts.
