Because of ideas you guys got from the sms ... no offence .
I believe it's a virus of somekind ... there're a lot of people bored and making those .... mine twisted my numbers and added few ... it can show unanswered call from the number you don't know about but it will write some name or in my case i got from one tv station (they didn't call) .... the virus is just confusing your phone ...

On a similar note, i've recieved strange phone calls from numbers that arent returnable

example (i've deleted it since then so i no longer have it)

1-918-457-54367

what was so weird is that these phone calls contain an extra digit on the end. I normall never answer a strange phone call, but this one wouldnt stop.

When i answered it, it was a lot of jibberish on the other end.

Doing some googling really produced no 'concrete' explanation.

Im not saying i think its a call from the future, i think if we had technology to do that, we'd just send back a VHS tape or DVD explaining everything.

But i think its possible that something isnt right.
My cell phone company - verizon - tells me that they show it as 000-000-0000 and a 0 second conversation, but my cell phone shows a different number, and a 10 second conversation.

Very Odd.

Maybe someone is trying to get in touch with us?

I've had something like that happen as well (the extra digit number)... but i was too weirded out to answer... the number called me like 15 times in on day.. Never happened again.. now i wish i answered.. what did the gibberish sound like?... fast? slow? male? female?

On another note.. I just texted the number in the original post... no reply yet *fingers crossed*

The jibberish was reminescent of someones phone ratting around in their purse or pocket or something

But you could hear occasional bursts of loud noise, though i couldnt make it out, it sounded...industrial?

It was strange to say the least. There was no "blips" or anything that made me think of aliens, it all sounded very earthly...except for the extra digit

i called the number and someone picked up. so then i hung up the phone. So I think this txt message thing is a hoax and to get people to call the number.

lol, it looks like it worked


But seriously though - what would the hoax be? Unless someone is setting around saying "i think ill trick a bunch of people into calling me"

sort of the Andy Kauffman sense of humor

Where its funny to nobody except him...

This really isn't adding anything, but when I searched on that phone number, it came back as Haddonfield, NJ.

That's where I grew up. Freaked me out a bit...



edit for spelling.

Ill put this to and end right now.

answer,

Customer server reps enjoy pranks...they are able to modify any part of the message and alter it in some ways. This prank being one of them...A buddy of mine works for tmobile, his friends and their friends all do these pranks..few people notice..but then you came.

also..not only tmobile, this is for metropcs, att, verizon, sprint, whomever.


In short, you got pranked by a csr.

really? like super csrs or something> because no csr's who responded on other boards had a clue.

and what message are you referring to? it was blank. are you saying they intercept and alter real messages?

being pretty familiar with IT and audits and security, i'm not sure i believe this theory, certainly not as a cst level...maybe...quite possibly at the level of someon in network security, but even then it's a bet your job kind of thing. and as it stands it's pretty unverifiable because no company would ever admit to this kind of breech from within its own ranks. nope i don't think i buy it based on hearsay and anecdotal evidence.

And then again it could be the O.S. that the entire network runs on. I've had WIERD things happen to my cell phone aside from this

I had a voicemail one day, from a friend of mine

My friend called, a stranger answered (though my phone was with me) and my voicemail recorded every second of it

My friend says

"hi is ______________ there?"
the strange voice says "dont know anybody by that name"
this throws my friend off and they have a conversation

Very very strange indeed.

But - hey - if it runs on windows, no big suprise, eh?

100,000 cell number picked for random tracking.

I was watching the news today and I think I know what this may be. I too have received strange phone numbers with no call backs etc.. CNN reported that there has been cell phone tracking going on in Europe by randomly calling 20 subjects picked for the test\ study. Random numbers used were tracked in other countries according to the report. But that it was not going on here in the U.S. The Video report did not disclose the cell carrier that is doing this though. From what I understand it’s tracking from just dialing a number from their data base with an unknown number one you could not call back too, also included text messages. I’m not making this up either . check out CNN Link below From the report it said this was not going on in the U.S A. but they just described what everyone here has been saying on the board. Also I noticed that the website content has changed from the actual video footage on television. IE, That this was not going on in other countries. It also stated in the video report on TV that the numbers used you could not be called back to. It seems to have been omitted from the website footage. Hmm wonder why? also some other content is missing than what was in the footage. the story has changed a little.
Found a link to CNN check it out.

I recieved the "Call Home" message just recently actually. It was recieved on the 25th of May 2008 when I look at where it falls between other messages.



That message would make me "Call Home" quite basically.




Originally posted by ZiggyMojo The "Watch for the Storm" message was recieved in early December 2007. The strangest thing is, about a week later we were hit with one of the largest snowstorms to hit the Ohio region in quite awhile. It was so bad in fact that we couldn't drive anywhere. I was supposed to pick up a new puppy for the family up in Michigan the weekend the storm hit too.. Which needless to say I didn't go, I knew the storm was coming by that time and decided it would be best to hold off.



That is some coincidence, or it was a warning in advance. If it was a warning, maybe it was telling you not to drive to pick up the puppy during the storm?




Originally posted by ZiggyMojo I can't remember if the "Don't Be Fooled" message was recieved last summer or the summer of 2006.. Either way most of the messages have been recieved within the last year or two.



This message has me intrigued the most.

I would like to think it's just a technical problem as opposed to messages from the grave or some strangeness of the sort.. I just can't help but think this may be related to a recently deceased relative or something. I don't mean to sound ridiculous, but the messages all have a kind of parent or "elder" type warning or advice. I'm not sure what to think of them and I try not to think too far into the evidence I have been presented.



I have read of similar experiences, where people get a phone call that warns of something, then something happens that if they did not get the warning, something bad would have happened to them.


Interesting stuff, technical problem or otherwise....

Hi Rick....

I've had just this sort of problem. I have a standard Motorola A910 phone, and for some time have been receiving text messages with a long past date.

The date that the message claims to have been sent is:
"31st December 1969 at 23:59 hrs"

Was there any specific event on that date? I have tried to find something significant occuring on that date, but cannot.

I have a feeling that it might give us a clue as to what these 'future' text messages are all about.

I will say one thing though, when I first began to get these messages, Late November 2007, they usually had a single character in them. The character was not normally a letter from the English alphabet, rather a combination of 'foreign' letters with accents above/below, etc. and in addition to this, symbols (usually squares).

Any ideas anyone?
