    Did you have a text notification service set up on a previous device that used brew applications? If so these may be notifications/updates for that app.

    I don't really know what a brew msg is either. But it is sent to my phone # in my messages and I have never had text notifications set up for any of my phones. Sometimes ill get a couple a day sometimes not for a week or so then ill get a bunch in one day.

    Are you on VZW? Have you been getting these since you switched to the BB?

    A quick search of the forums indicates that mobile mycast or AIM on a prior non-smartphone are likely culprits. Other members had success calling their carrier and temporarily re-activating their old phone just long enough to shut off these services. I suspect a call to US cellular would be your best next step. Hope you get it resolved!

    Did you have Mobile Email? This happened to me with Mobile Email, and I had to reactivate my dumbphone, deactivate Mobile Email, and then reactivate my BB.
