Seems last night my gmail was compromised, phone asked me to login this morning, and said password was incorrect, it was not. Went on the pc and verified, still no go. Did password change via recovery from alternate email.

30 minutes later i get a text from 900080004000 which is the number i get texts from verizon. It was:

//VZWDM;2010/12/27 21:21:44 GMT;183.45;;;MB;F;;0;;MB

I called verizon, the rep had no clue, sent me to tech support. Their best "guess" was that the phone tried to sync gmail and spit out an error text.

I normally would brush it off, but with the gmail compromise, i dont want to go by someones guess. I have paypal, google checkout, bank info tied to this account. Any ideas? Does this sound correct?

Other info: Gmail showed suspicious activity on the 20th from Sunnyvale, California, I live in Missouri. Nothing out of the ordinary from the 20th until this morning.

This is mine. Looks like maybe how much data has been used....something like that.

I got one of those too. Not sure why its formatted like though, you can get those texts by dialing #BAL, #DATA, etc.

VZWDM (Verizon Data Manager), the as of date, MB usage, but not sure what's after that (overage?)

I just verified and yes that is my current data usage according to the website. Nice to know, weird they just randomly sent that to me. Weird that a CS rep and Tech support couldnt tell me what you just did lol. Thanks!

If it's not in the script in front of them...they are mostly clueless.

Maybe hotspot usage is the last one.

Aw, quit picking on the reps. I really never get as good of customer service from any other place as I get from Verizon.

Just my 2 cents, a bit off topic.;)
