OZ Mail ????
ok as soon as i activated my thunderbolt today i started receiving these weird text messages from OZ Mail it sais BREW: (long string of numbers & letters) then says "To stop these messages simply reply to this one (charge may apply)
i was already with Verizon so my network didn't change neither did my phone number and i didn't get any of these on my other phone it started within 5 minutes of activating my Thunderbolt and i've received 3 so far in past 3.5 hours and the only way to stop them appears to cause a charge? wtf is this and why did it start as soon as i activated my thunderbolt i haven't given anyone or any website my number in months and thats just people i know i never input my number into websites

I'm guessing prior to your Thunderbolt you had a feature phone with mobile email. You can reactivate your old phone, unsubscribe from mobile email, then reactivate your Thunderbolt, or you can call VZW tech support and they can disable the alerts for you.

You are getting the OZ mail messages because you used to check e-mail on a feature phone and transitioned to a smartphone. The OZ mail system is used to notify you of a new e-mail message on a feature phone. You can call customer service and they can assist you with getting the messages to stop.
