    Flash SMS

    Do a search for flash SMS. I think that's what this is. Some folks have the abilit to send these. Not sure how. It's similar to the notifications your carrier can send.

    Someone is messing with you by sending a message that doesn't have a sender name. Just ignore it.

    There is a recent thread on how to do it.

    My gawd thats pretty funny!

    all i tcould think was to get a messege on my wife's phone that says "i know who you called last summer, when you were bored watching repeats of Sex and the City"


    I'd admit if i saw a "i'm watching you" like that i would still be running :)

    The day I got my iPhone, and didn't know what the hell I was doing, someone sent me:
    Scared the hell out of me. I should have known that it was fake because of the sheer crappyness of it:eek:
