    Those messages come from one of the apps you have downloaded. There is an app on the market that can find out which one it is but for the life if me I can't remember what its called.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly. I thought a problem app might be the case. If anyone knows the app that can determine the generator app please post the info. Thanks.

    Do you have the app called MP3(An app that you can download free songs)? That is what was causing my issues!

    No I don't. I installed Air Push Detector and it led to the app I downloaded called MySettings which I find very useful because it puts a shortcut on the Home Screen which allows me to instantly change all of my settings like Airplane Mode, Ringer Mode, Wi-fi,etc. Now, I've got to see if I can find a good replacement.
