    Default malicious code via SMS?

    I just got a text :
    you have been sent a media message from
    +447762054003. View it at
    http://mmsi2legascy.o2.co.uk/
    by typing in your
    ID: ******* and
    PIN: *****

    Anyone get this too?
    Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?

    Its Spam, Never give info! if you are on tmobile and you set up a mytmobile account you can block certain messages for your phone, I think email messages to your phone number.

    It's http://mmsi2legacy.o2.co.uk (ur address is spelt slightly wrong), and I can assure you that it's not malicious code. It's the way O2 UK deals with MMS messages sent to non-MMS-compliant phones. I used to get it on my old Nokia 8800 because of a network setting that O2 got wrong, so I used to get messages like this all the time. It's actually quite cool, because at least it means iPhone can receive MMS in UK, by going to this web site and entering in the details.

    Hope that helps - it's fine to click on the link!

    It's not.

    I should add that you should check who's number +447762054003 is - you don't want it being a mate sending you a picture of their bum do you!...

    Just go to the web site (with my slight correction) - it's O2 for crying out loud, it's not spam/phishing!

    Okay cheers.

    I'm in Toronto and while I recognized the O2 bit and UK designation, I was still suspect. Thanks for your help. Reps to you!
