I am a bit confused because I dont know if this is supposed to be a feature or a bug.

Recently I began having a problem with Verichat, whereby certain people in my contact list were somehow identified as ICQ users so I couldn't send to them. I uninstalled verichat, but without my sync cable I considered myself s.o.l. until I got home tonight.

Well lo and behold, *dink dink* I got an SMS message, but it was from a AIM instant message sent from 45672343463@a.verichat.com!

So, can someone help me clear this confusion?

a: Is this supposed to work like that?

b: How can I get it to stop? I dont want everyone I IM with sending me SMS messages on the road. I need a way to turn that crap off!

Thanks in advance
