From Optus' website (https://www.optus.com.au/shop/Answering-services):


Missed Call Service
Now you’ll never miss that important call.
With Missed Call Service, we’ll send you a text message whenever you miss a phone call, at no extra charge to you (when you’re in Australia).

You'll be covered when you:

Are out of a coverage area
Have your phone switched off
Are busy on another call
Are just screening someone
Your caller can leave either a short 10 second voice message or their number for a call back. We’ll convert it to a text that you’ll get when your phone is back in action. Great stuff, huh?

Googled and it gave me: Burckhardt Barry - (03) 9696 6003 - (http://www.reverseaustralia.com/lookup/0396966003/) and Consulease Pty Ltd, phone# 03 9696 6003, Southbank VIC, , 3006 (http://www.2findlocal.com/b/8818116/consulease-pty-ltd-southbank)

Maybe just call em and find out what they want?

What is the number that's sending the message? Can you screenshot it?

What is the number that's sending the message? Can you screenshot it? That's the point.... it isn't a message. it just appears on the home screen when the keypad is locked, as soon as i swipe the phone into action it disappears. I thought it might have been a reminder but i have no reminders.
