    I got a text message on my phone saying that I had an urgent message waiting for me and to call an 0871 number. Orange have sent me txts before saying that I have a message waiting, but they would never say it was urgent. The sender of this message isnt Orange, it too is an 0871 number. I think that this is some rip-off. Has anybody else had anything like this?

    if it says its urgent its probably not. i get loads of them, saying urgent or if theres loads of money waiting for me to collect :rolleyes: or soemthing.

    if it really is urgent then they'll probably call you.

    don't bother calling. I get one of these every week or so, and so do a lot of other people. It's all rubbish. They just want you to call their extortionately priced phone numbers for a couple of minutes.

    The 0871 number i think is national rate.... it will redirect the call to a premium rate 090 number!!!

    First time I got the "Dating service" message I was tempted to call.

    Luckily I didn't..... I've had about 20 messages from them now.

    ...I must be very popular... :rolleyes:
