    Angry Iphone Virus or Something more

    Hi all,
    I have an unlocked iphone using anysim 1.0.2 on t-mobile UK.

    Had an interesting sms text message today.. which decided to screw up the sms program.

    it is from number Bjd, which by the way does not exist in my contacts.

    Well first off I would suggest it is a virus sms, although it then got me thinking, what if a company who has all the numbers of iphone users has sent the message or got someone to send it on their behalf?

    Anyway the way I got SMS to work again was to ssh into the phone go to the ~/Library/SMS directory and move sms.db out the way. This means you lose all your text messages.

    As an interesting point I have also analysed the sqlite db which has the following row (the offending row as I saw the message via a pop up) in the message table.

    address : Bjdڜ
    date: 963213290

    Any one else get anything like this? I am surprised as no one really has my mobile number and I have not received weird txts like this before on any phone.

    Simon

    It might be something pretty bog standard to be honest. T-Mobile UK (my current network) started sending me these service update texts when I had an MDA Pro (and they knew I had an MDA cos I bought it off them)

    They probably just sent you a service message the iPhone was never meant to be able to handle, it dutifully saved in in sms.db and borks on some of the funny characters.

    I wouldn't bother losing all your texts, just copy sms.db over to your computer and just remove the offending text using an SQlite client and copy back over.

    you need to cancel whatever service is sending them, use another phone to find out where they come from
