Beware: Apple is not looking for iPhone 5 testers, it’s text message spam


The iPhone 5 is rumoured to be officially announced this coming June, but the spammers are already in full force. Watch out for them as they’ve started to attacked Canadians via text message. Hopefully the Government of Canada’s new Anti-Spam Legislation will grab a hold of those responsible and heavily fine them. If you get the above text message, don’t pass it on or click the link. Apparently those who did click had their phone immediately freeze up. Just delete it. Apple is not looking for 1,000 testers, nor would ask via text message.

    Disappointed over OTA for my nexus s and strange silence from google, I will own the iphone 5. No need to wait for updates and becoming a master on how to root phones.

    Come on, don’t begrudge iPeople some excitement in their iLives.

  • Mike

    If you believe it you deserve to have your phone freeze up on you.

  • Zia

    Google if you don’t want to communicate with me, I don’t want your products. Still understand that updated to nexus s will take time but what is stopping you to tell people who bought your products that what’s going on.

    Actually, these messages are from apple, but they only send them to android phones. The idea is to make u think android is buggy when its really not… Its a conspiracy man!

    I had the nexus s, got sick and tired of google holding back ics even when I had a “pure google” device. Installed cm9 on it, it was fast and smooth but extremely bad battery life…

    Now i have a iPhone 4s that is at least 2x the speed of a tegra 3 in the gpu department, and it actually gets used :). Don’t believe me, check anandtech.

    Pce,
    Apple4Life
