    Hi,

    I constantly receive sms with my IMEI

    I am very frustrated over that my phone since about a month ago constantly at least twice a day, sends me an sms with my IMEI in it.

    It comes from the number +224622168077 and the text is the same every time (translated from swedish):
    "Save this sms
    Sender: Me
    IMEI: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx."

    Or can it possibly be my phone itself, a Samsung Galaxy S6, due to any setting made (by mistake)?

    Thanks in advance for your kind support!

    Best regards,
    Johan Andren

    I'm not familiar with all the settings on that phone, but did find this with a Google search. It's old information, but might be worth looking at.

    Settings -> Security -> Mobile tracking. If it is activated, it automatically sends a text message to specified recipients whenever it detects that the sim card is changed
