I have a MIMAX3 phone, recently, I changed my app for SMS to "Messenger for messages" from "messaging" that is, I assume, the app from Xiaomi.

For the login of Dropbox or a Credit Card, I usually receive a SMS from a foreign country (I am living in Israel) and the message, instead of e.g. a six digit number is as this from a bank

My question is what can I do to repair it? For SMS from my country, e.g. to enter in gov. sites with an SMS code, it works fine.

After reading in the chat about the possibility that the problem is linked to the app, I deleted the messenger for messages, and the messages I receive are the same.imagine from the Dropbox SMS

Edit. I came back to the regular SMS app for xiaomi phone and the problem weren't solved. I contacted my telephone operator and they say that if a SMS is received, it's not a problem related to them. They have nothing to do with the content of the messages. I contacted the support team of Dropbox, and they weren't able up to day to understand what is the problem. I am very surprised. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the dual identification and the problem remained.

  • Have you ever received a valid SMS before? If so, is it in English, or foreign (e.g. Hebrew) language?

  • @Andrew thanks. I'm afraid that it's not a problem of transcription because it's a digit code as 123456

  • Was there a reason you changed the SMS app? May be it is just a bug in the SMS app. There are other good SMS/messenger apps available, I would recommend e.g. Signal as messenger+SMS app.
