Messages on an American iPhone in Greece?

I recently took my Verizon American iPhone 5s outside the country for the first time and installed a Cosmote sim card on it. Immediately all my contacts on the messages app lost their names and only appear as their American phone numbers, e.g. +1 (xxx) xxx-xxxx. How can I fix this? [more inside]

Site or application for logging text and photo messages?

For a research project, we’re asking ~24 high school and college students to log their experiences with homework by sending us text messages and photos over the course of about two weeks.

Is this prof hitting on a lesbian student?

I am getting an "icky feeling" from a professor from a nearby university. He hasn't said anything suggestive, but he keeps trying to get me (and just me) to hang out with him. I can't tell if he is a lonely old dude without friends or what. Also, I am a lesbian. How do I make sure I send a clear message that we are only friends and absolutely nothing more? [more inside]

What to draw/write on kindergartner's lunchbox notes?

My son is 5 years old, in kindergarten, can read. I'd like to start leaving notes in his lunchbox for him to discover - I'm after ideas. I did some googling and found an industry of pre-printed lunchbox notes, but I want something more personal. After ideas for now, and for when he gets bigger as well. I was thinking: Pictures of monsters/trucks/stuff, silly sentences, jokes, Codes/Ciphers. What else? Any good resources on drawing simple monsters?

How do I send automated text messages to multiple recipients?

For a community health project, I need automated capability to send text messages to participants' phones based on a specified schedule, content and sequence of messages. The volume would be in the range of 100 recipients grouped into 6 or 8 different categories (each category would receive a distinct sequence of messages), with perhaps 2 or 3 messages per day to each recipient. Any suggestions?

Old canned spam?

Why are some spam messages predated, often by days and occasionally by years (I just deleted two that were supposedly from the year 2000)? I'm sure there's some technical means to send them that way, but what do they get out of it? How likely am I to see a penis enlargement offer that's hidden on page 66 of my inbox?
