Just received a text from a 8900# with the following text "ESP~9134015481~3522270828239107~A~1~eng~1004~60~0~0~0~999999999999999~5153960960~999999999999999~6463925248~6442450944~999999999999999~throttled1~3601~0~0"
Whats this mean? Is it like a virus?

Same here. Do you guys have T-Mobile? I wonder if this is a carrier thing.

No better idea on this. But simply you can skip this. I think it's scam.

I got one this morning as well, also got my high speed back. I'll try to contact T-Mobile anyway to see what they say. Probably a packet that was supposed to be pushed to remove the artificial throttling, which got sent as an sms.

Have the messages stopped for you? I've been receiving them since like 12 last night. Around 13 of those texts now.

James
Could that text have anything to do with the merger of Sprint and T Mobile?
Just an idea!
