    Anyone else get a fishy text from 1-616-328-1085 inviting them to beta-test the iPhone5 by logging into http://testiphone5.me? I'm on AT&T. I didn't respond because it's suspicious for a pfish, but the spammed text is a new one for me. I thought it was illegal to spam texts.

    I've gotten simaliar messages in the past. I don't think the people that send them care if there illegal or not.

    I think the scam works by every reply you send you are charge a premium rate like 5/10$.

    regardless of whether spam texts are legal or not,you will still get them. It's impossible to stop them.
