unidentified number 00447786205094 on my bill

the above charge appeared on my bill, when I was still asleep and I always turn my iPhone 6 off during sleeping.

 

I search and found that it was facetime, how can I avoid it in the future?

 

Any contribution is welcome, thanks in advance.

The SMS to activiate these features should only be a one off unless you do something like resetting your phone. But if you want to disable the features go into settings>facetime and settings>messages

If you do turn off iMessage and want to turn it on again, I think that will send another text message to the UK as part of the activation process. This is how it authenticates that your Apple ID is being used on the same device as your mobile phone number.

Every time you turn Face time/ Imessage off and on Vodagone will charge you for an international text.

 

Some companies have made an agreement not to do so with Apple. But vodafone has not.

Does anyone know about the other companies in NZ?
