Apologies if this is the wrong forum, I was on the fence to post here or under mobile phones.  Anyway, please see the attached... the "Hidden sender address" message you see will NOT go away.  I clear it, I clear the phone cache, and it just comes back...again and again (like that cat for my fellow Canuks).  I checked with my provider (Virgin Mobile Canada) and they indicated it was most likely a phone issue as there were no messages on their system.  So here I am...  Any thoughts..?


I am using the stock messages application.

Found this on another forum:  https://www.reddit.c...er_address_mms/ Might be worth a try tho one other poster said it didn't work for him.



UPDATE: Think I fixed it, and it was totally by accident. I wanted to try Hangouts as my SMS app. So, when I enabled Hangouts as default SMS, it auto imported all my SMS/MMS. And when it did, there was a mystery MMS to an unknown sender bolded (i.e. "unread"). I was then able to delete these messages and the message went away!

Those unknown MMS message were not visable to the the stock Messaging app and I have no idea how they got there, but now it seem that they've gone away.

Is there any way or any app that can be used to make apps like Hangouts appear to be disabled when they're actually in use?
