my nexus send automatic sms, how to stop that!!
« on: November 09, 2013, 08:01:48 AM »
I'm a new nexus 4 user with 6 years iOS background. I discovered today when I checked with my carrier that every day many SMS were sent automatically from my handset. However I can't detect which app is sending  these SMS. Any way to stop this

The only way I could think of that this would happen is Malware. I've not experienced it myself in nearly four years of Android nor has anybody I know but it does exist.

Have in installed any applications from outside the Play store? What in the community is often referred to as sideloading?
