    Okay so my iPhone has just been plugged in for sync, however this message was shown the screen when i plugged the phone in meaning it was on the screen prior to the sync (just didnt see it)

    Anyone know what it is?

    Obviously your phone has become sentient. Sleep with one eye open.

    I hope you didn't click Dismiss as this will release the demons from your phone.

    Why did you have to ruin the mystery? :( We could have had some real fun with the OP.

    Bugger. My iPhone is no longer watching me. I took measures to ensure it watched me no more. Measures which MAaaaaAAAaaaay mean i have broken it.

    Oh well.









    I jest.

    If you're sending one from an o2 phone, you type *go and your message, without a space. e.g *goI'm watching you...

    I found it hilarious to freak my friends out with them, but thats just me! :p

    AFAIK, can't be done in America.

    but it's not just iphones or O2.

    Indeed i am from the UK. Now all i need to do is find out which bastard is sending this messages to me and end them.

    End them legally of course.

    Good luck. And I'm pretty sure it's not against the law to send a SMS. Especially one that isn't threatening in any way.

    Oh i know. What i mean i i'm going to find them and harm them. But harm them some way that is legal.

    Maybe speak to their boss, tell them about the drug abuse. See how long they last.

    That sort of thing.

    And if you wanted to send a threatening one, just send it as a flash sms, as they auto-delete themselves from the inbox, no evidence. Only thing is they might know it was you as some phones do show the sender.

    I've thought about this far to much, i'm a nice person, honest!

    if you are on o2 you can find out who sent you the flash sms by going into your bluebook on the o2 website. It keeps all messages sent to you and the senders number, including flash messages.

    Some other guy got a similar message ages ago, and as he was on O2 and he had the online backup thingy from them (Bluebook???), he was able to see who sent it to him.

    Have you got Bluebook?

    Edit: Damn! Too slow

    It's the multiple syllables. Change it to "damn" and "or" and you'll be fine. God forbid you through something like "aluminum" at them. Their heads just explode.

    :p

    I hate to say it, but it's true. I swear that the population of mouth-breathers is getting bigger!
