    Unknown sender text msgs

    Hey everyone,

    Today I started getting strange text messages from an "unknown sender" and "anonymous" that contains just a bunch of symbols.
    No actual text.

    I'm seeing them in handcent and the messaging app.
    I'm on rooted gb with SSX 2.2, but I don't think it has anything to do with that.

    Just wondering if anyone else has seen this. I've gotten them a couple times today, and it's starting to get annoying.

    Let me know if you have any ideas on this.


    Thanks.

    The only thing I can think of is a bad connection/file... Whether it was corrupted when sending or receiving...

    I've gotten texts from "Anonymous" before, but no symbols, creepy messages like "I know where you live" and stuff.
    Maybe someone is sending them from those anonymous texting websites to mess with you. Or some foreigner spamming your phone... I know the sites like Free Text Messaging - Send and Receive Free Text Messages - Text'em actually show the sender as "anonymous" and there isn't a way for them to receive the reply
    "You have to live before you die young"
