Unexplained charges for non-existent incoming texts

I'm being charged for dozens of incoming texts that were never received, apparently due to a system billing problem. Despite many hours on the phone with Boost customer service and multiple escalation,s nothing has been resolved. Text blocking is not possible as I never receive any texts, so there is no number to block. Boost has been unable to identify where the supposed texts are coming from. Totally frustrated former Virgin Mobile customer.

I am having the same problem. Only one text appeared on the phone but I have been charged for 26 in 2 1/2 months. Customer service says they are messages from Boost about my account, but why are they charging for internal messages? Anyway, I never received them. The tell me that is because my phone is off for more than 24 hours at a time. I use it only for emergencies and for meeting people and it is off more than 95% of the time.
