    I recently upgraded to Kit Kat on my stock, non-rooted N4. I have noticed that every time the phone boots up after being turned off, it seems to send an unusual text message. I do not know if this is related to the phone or the carrier. I am using T Mobile pre paid.

    Any ideas?

    Not 100% sure but I think it is hangouts trying to verify your mobile number for SMS integration. If you have already done this..maybe try uninstalling the hangouts update and reupdating..

    I googled "activate:dt=6" and came away with the impression that this has something to do with Visual Voicemail, perhaps specifically T-Mobile Visual Voicemail.

    There is another thread here regarding texts to a mysterious "status" to "9816" which I think are of the same nature. I am wondering if this is a Hangouts bug in that it is displaying backoffice texts which are not normally meant to be seen by the user.

    I'm experiencing that as well. I'm on T-Mobile and I use a third party app for SMS (Chomp).

    Well, I'm not using Hangouts for SMS, still using the stock app along with SMS Popup. Also, I do have T-Mobile Visual Voicemail.

    Edit - I saw a review on Google Play for the T-Mo VV app and someone posted the same thing in a review a few days ago.
