What the..

Member

I have seen these numbers on my wifes usage of late, she denies anything to do with it.

 

To and from 0080001404 and 0000006245. From my understanding it is AOL and Yahoo. Is this instant messaging or is she sending and replying to text/emails from these accounts? Does she have to sign onto an email to respond to these? I need to understand this as she is of no help.

 

Thanks to any...

You are correct these are messages to and from AOL and Yahoo members.

The receiver does not have to be signed into their IM accounts, the message will come through as a regular text.

Well she always denies it, she says she doesn't even know how to do it or what I am talking about. I am concerned...

I use AIM to send SMS messages on a fairly regular basis. It's entirely possible that she doesn't even know that the messages are from AIM/Yahoo, because they show up on the phone as just a regular text. They can be replied to just like a text, and the message goes to the AIM user's messenger.

 

Try it out sometime, you'll see what I mean.

Like somegirl said, someone is sending her text messages, and they are using AIM or Yahoo Messenger.  Your wife receives them and responds to them as text messages.  The other person is using their computer....so your wife may not even realize the sender is on a computer, not a phone.   It all appears to her as text messaging.....and it all counts as text messaging on your bill too.  My daughter regularly "texts" with friends in the UK this way - they on their computer, she on her phone.  No international fees!!!

But why are those the one's that are always deleted, but no others? Last night she sent me a text at 7:44pm, I was in the same room as her, she sent a goofy one. Two minutes later she was texting again. I asked her about it, she said it was to our daughter who doesn't even have a computer. It showed up as one of the 0000006245. As usual she denied it. And it was erased.

 

And our daughter didn't get one from her. I am confirming what I have thought for a while now.  :smileysad:

 

I am outta here, thanks for the replies.
