I got this pair of text messages today…

Before I answer, I have 3 questions of my own:

  1. Why are you calling me “BILL”?  Pretty sure that is not printed anywhere on my birth certificate.
  2. Who on earth is “Claire” that I allegedly had a “service experience” with.  (I do hope that isn’t a euphemism!)
  3. The phone number this was sent to is a Telstra service: first activated in 2001.  0439 is a Telstra prefix.  Why the F### ask me?

I do have a SIM card that is an Optus pre-paid, that’s installed in the Kite, along-side a Telstra pre-paid.  I haven’t turned that phone on in a good month or so (I should fire it up just to keep the battery fresh though).

I’d never install that Optus phone in this phone however: pretty sure the phone I received this SMS on is locked to Telstra so it wouldn’t get a service if I tried.

Given you can’t get my name right, and you clearly haven’t checked your records properly, let me finish with this: Why would I recommend you?
