    Well, it improves the situation but it doesn't remedy it, at least in my case. I followed DocsDad's advice and blacklisted 6250 in Handcent. No longer get notifications (Thank God) but the messages still accumulate. I have 24 of them this morning. Mine are a bit different from others'; they're labeled VZWPIN rather than VZWMTN.

    Turns out this problem has been going on for well over a year on various Verizon phones and it is certainly NOT "a third party texting app." It's Verizon's incompetence with their damn "backup assistant." Turning it off doesn't help. Nothing helps.

    Using Handcent, long press the message thread from 6250. A menu will appear that enables you to blacklist that particular sender. The messages may continue to accumulate but you won't be notified.

    Two quick things I have learned:
    One: You may not want to remove Backup Assistant Plus as Verizon techs will tell you to do. When I did this it not only erased ALL my emails on BOTH server and phone, but also fragged my email apps on the phone to the point where a complete reset to factory specs was required.
    Two: The texts can be stopped by removing the (Non Gmail) email account and re installing it as POP instead of IMAP. I did this with my LIVE.COM account and the Text messages stopped instantly. Of course push email doesn't work now with that account but it's better than 60 texts a day for nothing.
    Also this is not an isolated problem with any specific phone. The exact same thing happened to me years ago when I switched from a normal phone to a smart phone and is not manufacturer or even Android specific. It seems to be a problem with Verizon's push email notifications, but once you switch to POP it eliminates the weird texts. Hope this helps, at least til their techs figure out the real solution..

    You can also hide the blacklisted text by going to handcent settings/security & privacy. At least you won't need to look at them either :)

    I got a text from 6250 just like you described everytime I tried (and failed) to install the software update.

    Don't know if that helps?

    6250

    My daughter was getting this text also every time an email came through. We went to verizon and apparently it is the email push. So the girl there removed her Yahoo email account (just keeping the gmail account). There is an app in the market for yahoo mail. She installed the app and now there are no more 6250 texts :):)

    I get at least twelve messages a day on my Razr. It's really annoying
