Where I am located messages can be sent to my ST LG290C using ##########@vtext.com

One way to see what your own address is, is to compose a new message to yourself (you can put email addresses in the TO line) from your phone and see what the reply to address is.

What I don't know is if these types of messages count as text, data or both.

Next time you load your plan to the phone go to the straight talk website and use the refill area. When you do this it will reset your phones pass code to the last 4 digits of your phone #.

I have a similar problem with my Straight Talk Prepaid LG 290C Phone but I'm not sure if it's the same issue. They vicariously place their speaker phone button where you need to grip the phone. Maybe your turning it on by accident.

When you get this phone new there is a clear piece of plastic covering the lower back portion of the battery compartment. It is like the plastic covering the screen and buttons. I didn't notice this at first and until I removed it I wasn't able to securely close the battery cover. See if that plastic film is still there and remove it.

maybe you just got a bad phone, take it and exchange it for another one I guess because I have this phone and it has never done any of this and this is my second one ! i dropped my other one and bought another one.
