    My sister is getting these weird texts on her new 3GS. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before? They are from alert@alertsite.com. I have an iPhone 3G and have not seen these messages before.

    If you go to the alertsite.com, it seems like they have her listed as a server administrator.

    Looks like it's a phone number recycling problem. The webmaster forgot to remove his old number.. and then that number was given to your sister, so you're getting his alerts.

    Her number isnt on that site, however. At least not under the contact tab.

    Somehow her number got tied up with that website.
    She should contact the Admin and have her number and alerts removed.

    No, I think that that site is a service for webmasters; so the guy who previously had the number was a customer of theirs; not a worker there.

    Applejuiced said what I meant to say.
