Hi all,

so i got the phone ... stuck XT sim in it and all is working.

I am getting what seems to be probing garble txts from a UK number which seem to be the activation txt's for the facetime feature (yes i am aware that it will not work on XT etc) but i am wondering if its possible to stop the txts ... have had about 3 in last 2 hours.

Maybe someone from iphonewzealand can help?

Are you saying the SMS is not working (FaceTime activation)? FaceTime itself is not network dependent, as it is only available over WiFi...
