Silent SMS messages being sent to 49988?

I was testing out Extreme Text Messaging and set Copy to another number. I noticed that my iPhone was sending out text messages which were not recorded in the phones Messages list, but were being copied to my other number. After doing some digging, I found that the messages were going to 49988. Does anyone have any idea what this is all about?

Thank you Chris,

 This silent SMS sent to 49988 by iPhone is triggering Roam Like Home and $12 is charged.  User is responsible for the charge? Or Apple will cover it?
