    Default Removing Call Back Numbers in Text Messages??

    How do i remove the CB# that shows up in some of my text message bubbles? It's weird because it doesn't show up in all of my texts. Just certain contacts.

    I very much would like to know as well. Did it only start happening after the Jelly Bean update?

    You can't. Jelly bean update added that for some God forsaken annoying reason! Lol

    Yes this also happened to my S3 after the Verizon update to Jelly Bean.

    My wifes # on her Iphone does not show up however. Most all others do. It is annoying.

    Just like radicalRWer, the only time a callback # isn't added to the end of the text is from a iphone user.
    All other basic and android phones, and yes the person sending the text has callback # unchecked, automatically gets their # inserted at the end of their text after JB update.

    At the bottom of the settings in the stock messaging app there should be an option to “enable call back number”. Make sure that is unchecked and that should eliminate you including a call back number when you text someone.

    I have a GS3 and my wife has a Razr M, both are running stock Jelly Bean and have that option unchecked.

    Just got the G2 and am having the same problem. On both the stock message app and Handcent. I think it has to vary by phone. My old phone, Droid Bionic, was running JB 4.2.2 and it didn't have the callback issue. Only thing different with that phone was it had been rooted. I know people didn't enable the CB feature on their phone overnight so that's not the issue either. Hopefully someone comes up with a fix for this soon.

    It all has to do with the settings of the SENDER. There is nothing you can do on your phone to turn it off. It WILL go away if the sender (android) turns it off. I asked everyone I know well and my family members to go into their settings and turn it off as leprechaunshawn said above, and the number is no longer there on texts received from them. This has always been the case, but for some reason, it was turned on by default in the latest update. Someone thought it was a good idea, even if you already see the number or identity of the person sending you the text, that you should see their number again. Got to wonder who they are picking to determine what goes in the updates!!!

    Hi.... I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and figured this out by going into my list of text messages, going down to the bottom and clicking the left-hand "button", clicking on "settings" while you are in "texting mode", and if you scroll down, it will say "Turn on/off callback number", UNCHECK this box and you've got it! Hope this helps.

    Unchecking (or turning off) the callback number option in "Settings" DOES NOT eliminate the call back number in text messages in Galaxy 4s.
