Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system.
I recently traveled to another country and I'm using a local prepaid sim card on my Galaxy S2.
My prepaid credit was depleted rather quickly, and when I checked the phone record I found out my phone was sending two sms messages each day, about one minute apart from each other - one to my old number and one to my wife's number (as far as I can tell the only thing special about my wife's number is that with my old sim card I used to call it a lot).
These two numbers are in my home country, so the sms messages were very expensive, and that is why my prepaid credit was depleted so quickly. Now that my credit is depleted I still sometimes get a message from the mobile carrier saying they can't deliver a message I was supposedly trying to send (though really I wasn't) because I have no credit - so my phone is still trying to send these messages.
So I'm stuck with no credit, and I don't want to recharge my card because my phone keeps trying to send these messages and it will deplete my credit again.
Now as far as I can tell all these apps came preinstalled by Google or Samsung, and therefore supposed to be trusted. When I bought my device, about a year ago, I turned on the feature "SIM change alert - Send SMS when SIM card is changed".

I found this Useful info shown in the image below: Most of them have been found to be working in Punjab and Haryana Telecom Circle. Of course I didn't send any messages myself, nor is there any record of them in the outgoing messages. It does make me wonder though, why WhatsApp needs permission to send sms messages in the first place - it's supposed to send messages only by using the internet connection isn't it? A Google search led me to this forum post that describes this security feature, and when I read it I recalled that I turned it on. Simply dial *1# or *#1# and you will see  mobile number displayed of that particular Sim Card. Also, do you have the message that was sent to your wife (by asking her, as you stated you don't have the message in your outbox)?

I don't know if placing the old SIM will make the settings work, but I know this thing is sending messages out every time I restart phone, but I can't get into the settings and change it! After I enabled it again, the Settings app didn't crash and I was able to authenticate and disable the feature. Android is a constantly evolving operating system, and so these instructions may not be identical for every model of smartphone.
We've included instructions for some of the more common places you can find your SIM number – or 'ICCID', as it's sometimes known.
Finding your SIM number in the Settings menu Drag your finger down from the top of the phone screen to make the notification panel appear, then press the cog icon in the top-right corner to go in to your phone's Settings menu. On some phones, you may need to swipe down twice from the top of the phone's screen to see the cog icon.
Once you can see your Settings menu, scroll to the very bottom of the list and tap on About (or About Phone). On some phones, like the HTC One, your SIM number will appear as your 'IMSI' number (International Mobile Subscriber Identity).
