Facebbook messages coming in as text messages


Why am I receiving messages that come in as text messages saying someone 'liked' or 'commented' on my status on facebook? These messages are not even from people I know or on my friends list on facebook. I have disabled internet and WiFi on my phone but I am still getting them.

It is possible, through Facebook, that the notification settings are set to send you sms for those situations. Log into facebook and check your notification settings.

The person who had your # before you must have signed up for text notifications from FB and hasn't turned them off after losing that phone number. You can try to contact them and get them to disable text notificationsnotifications on their FB account for that phone number or change your phone number. You can change your number through Koodo self serve.

Well that's alot easier. I didn't think you'd be able to do that without the other end disabling it first but it makes sense to have it automatically disable the last account when associated with a new account. Star for Dennis 🙂
