Recently, when sending messages on Facebook, I have noticed that the checkmark box next to the "Send to mobile" option is on by default. This happens regardless of how many times I uncheck the box.

An illustration of the issue: "Send to mobile" is checked by default

How do I change the default behaviour so that the "Send to mobile" box is unchecked?


This does seem to be a problem for new messages, however for replying I cannot seem to get that option.

No phone option shown

  • I think it depends, but I can't quite figure out on what. On certain contacts it behaves as you described, but on others it's checked even for replies. – Alex Sep 25 '11 at 8:51

Whether that option is available when replying depends on whether the recipient has registered a mobile device and enabled receiving notifications on it. When sending a new message Facebook doesn't check first and just enables it by default. As far as I can find there is no way to disable this option.
