    Default Re: Getting texts from OZMAIL?

    This is a Verizon thing. Ozmail is a service they use. If you find a Verizon tech that knows about it, they can stop these notifications. It took a couple of trys for me to find someone atVZW that was aware of it. They fixed it though. Just call tech support 1-800-922-0204 and keep asking until they put you through to someone whos knows how to stop the OZMAIL notifications!

    I started getting massive amounts of text messages from OZMAIL as well, and after looking for the answer everywhere on the internet, I finally fixed the problem using the following combination:

    I sent an email to every email account I had until I found the one that would trigger the text to come up on my phone.

At first I overlooked this because it wasn't enabled, but then I read the above post I quoted and sure enough, you have to sign up for it, then go back under the preferences and disable it (to do that, I had to click on "sign up for windows live mobile" again in order to bring up the options for it, then you can find "Set up Alerts preferences").

    After doing this, I sent another email to myself on that account, and voila - no more OZMAIL text messages.

    I hope this helps someone!!!

    VZW can place a stop on anything you want stopped.. i recieved a text that had a pic in it, and in a few was told by VZW that "That service cost 10 bucks a month" i told VZW i didnt ask for it and certainly was not aware of extra cost and to block all such calls text etc from my phone.. so that ended that..now to get rid of those "groupons" they drive me nutty since they come in as email and i think its important from a friend only to see i can get a widget for 50 cents.. or whatever..

    The only way I got them stopped was to uninstall my third party SMS client. For some reason, GOSMS would grab the email notification as a text message from OZMAIL. Once I uninstalled the SMS client, the Ozmail texts stopped. Its happened with Handsent SMS and GoSms, so I think it has something to do with the notification itself.
    Wish I could fix it because I LOVE GoSMS

    Back in March 2012, I began to receive these OZmail Text messages. Though Verizon tried to block them, they still coming at a rate of 15 to 20 a day. I ended up downloading a free apps "Mobile Manager" that finally blocks all these text messages. Two months later, I am still getting these messages at the same rate.

    I just started to have this same issue with my Razr HD Maxx over this past weekend and it drove me nuts. I upgraded from a Charge about one month ago. When I read about push notifications, it occurred to me that the problem was probably related to the YouVersion Bible app that I installed over the weekend. I forgot that the app enables push notifications by default. I opened the app, went to settings and disabled push notifications. Problem solved. I'll let the developer know about this.

    If you are having the same issue, check which apps have push notifications and disable them one by one until the problem goes away.

    There is nothing you can do- Verizon has to do it. You have to get a rep that knows how to change the notifications. Hit option 3 for technical support and get Tier 2 support. Tier 1 support has no clue- I asked for a supervisor 3 times and every time the lady would put me on hold an dcome back and tell me she was going to try something else- even wanted to do a full reset of my phone. Then asked me if verizon sold me a used phone- I was crazed. She never got me the supervisor but got a tier 2 (t2) rep and she took care of it in a quick minute.
    AGAIN YOU CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT CALLING IN - OPTION 3 for Tech support and make sure you get a tier2 rep and tell them you need notifications changed becasue you keep getting OZMAIL. If you mention OZmail and someone doesn;t know what it it- tell them to transfer you- this problem has been going on with verizon for 2 years.
    AHHHHHHH but its done- FINALLY!
