You are receiving imessages, not text msg. Turn imessage off in the settings. I seem to remember reading that you should turn imessage off before you remove the sim, but that could have just been if you were switching to another idevice.
Price errors are the only real sales :)
I refused to be gouged by canadian retailers when purchases can be made in the U.S for a LOT less..

This is prolly the case. If you look through the texts (imessages) that you have received since swapping phones you will likely find that they are being sent from users exclusively using idevices.
