798 Is a service people with no credit can use when they want you to call them. I had a lot of broke mates 798 me because I am on an unlimited plan

 

 

 

Looks like this person with no credit wants to talk with you. I would just txt them and say Hi it's **** I think you have the wrong number,

I used to get these all the time from some number I had never heard of too. I just ignored them. If they really want to talk to me they can text me properly and I'll call them back.

I am very unlikly to want to talk to someone who is out of credit to be honest. Is there an opt out for this if it becomes a problem? I have never seen them when I have been on VF.

Now that the answer has been found, wouldn't it be ethical to remove the number and Facebook link so that Geekzone isn't giving out people's phone numbers so easily?

Good idea. Remove the whole thread even.





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

johnr: @kiwifidget it's a VodafoneNZ ' Callme ' SMS

http://www.vodafone.co.nz/mobile/apps-services/

Maybe the 021 number is Prepay and has no credit / minutes


 

Is that the actual wording VF uses. "U" instead of "you" and nothing to indicate whether the text is legit or not?

 

 

Yes, because Vodafone rather look "cool", "hip" and "youthful" than use proper English when there's more than enough space.
