Mystery MMS from +4735

Anyone know who or what i is?

Usually FIDO messages have some text, "Hi, it's FIDO" followed by stuff. This one is just a MMS, no text no sender hints. I have my phone set not to download MMS automatically, so it is just an alert that something exists. I don't go out of my way to download messages from unknown senders.

Maybe it is FIDO - or maybe it is ODIF the anti-christwhatjusthappenedtomyphonedammit

So today I got a SMS from 4735 - without the + prefix

Normal SMS, "Hi, it's FIDO..."

So maybe the +4735 is ODIF

 

And I deleted that ODIF conversation without opening the box to seeing if I had a free phone or a dead phone. Just kicked it to the curb. Let someone else open it.

I was just thinking. this is just like Scrhodingers cat.

The message could be a free phone from FIDO

Or a dead phone from ODIF

Until I download the MMS it is simultaneously both outcomes.

And i won't know if i have a free phone or a dead phone until I open it.

Opening the message determines the content.

 

Hmmm
