I switched from the LG Dare to a Blackberry Curve and started getting the BREW msgs from OZ MAIL #18012222269. It says BREW and then a bunch of numbers and letters and then says something about if you want these msgs to stop just reply blah blah blah, and they come every time you get an email, MANY times a day! Apparently this has happened to many people, and in my research I have discovered it has something to do with having mobil email on your last phone and not cancelling it before activating the new phone, but NOBODY at Verizon knows anything about it, and yet it's all over the forums and google... But I tried every last possible suggestion that worked for others and none of them worked for me. THEN I googled this problem and ended up on www.my.blackberry.com and found another solution I hadn't already heard, and IT WORKED!!! Here it is: On your phone go to Options<Security Options<Firewall and check SMS and MMS under "Block incoming messages," and then check "address book contacts" under "except messages from." Ever since I did this, no more of those annoying messages!!!
This message is from Backup Assistant. It does not work on you BB. You need to log on to your old BA web contacts page and disable the auto backup. Verizon techs should be aware of this as it has appeared many times.
Doesn't block any emails at all. Just blocks any texts that are not from someone in your contacts list. This is no big deal to me as I don't need to receive a text msg from someone who isn't in my address book. Going on 24 hours now and still no BREW msgs. I literally tried all other solutions from changing email password to a hundred other things and this is the only thing that worked, unless I wanted to change my number. As for the other reply, I'm not sure what this has to do with backup assistant at all.
for the life of me I can't find a link to email verizon support
worst customer support links on the 'net (well ... among big companies anyways !)
MODERATOR'S COMMENT: Due to many complaints in this forum concerning the lack of a chat option and non responses to emails sent to customer service, the email option has been replaced with a chat option.
I will attempt to see if there is still a link available if someone wishes to still email Customer Service.

contact us only takes you to lines-of-questions and a chat button that is currently disabled.
no email address is available, from what I can see
