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

Has this stopped the notifications?

No it hasn't stopped by turning these two off.

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.
