This is correct re the activation SMS to a UK number.

Has this stopped the notifications?

Hi Ashleigh. One other possibility is the iPhone converting SMS to MMS. There are certain triggers which will make the phone do this - exceeding a certain character limit (and emjois can count as multiple characters); or sending a group message to multiple contacts for example.

You can disable MMS messaging under settings>messages and see if that puts a stop to it.

 

Last resort you can PM me with your mobile number. I'll trace and see what I can spot from my end.
