Its data. The word phone is just the name of the access point name its not a phone call or message.

Is this data chargeable when you are on a wi-fi local or home network connection?

Does this mean that the user is using a different messaging program on the internet?

Re: Internet/MEdia Net

As a follow-up to this message, if it is still being followed.  Is it possible that an application on my phone is automatically sending something?  As I review my bill I see this type of message being sent, however I am taking no pro-active action to do anything myself.

Re: Internet/MEdia Net

The solution is quite simple.  The data message that is being sent is from the iphone to Apple. Resolution:

Go to:

Settings: General:About

Scroll down & select diagnostic/usage: 

Select: do not send

 

It worked for me... hopefully for you all also.
