    Weird iPhone 3GS Message weirdness?
    Hi,

    This is very weird. It's a mates birthday today, and he posted a picture on facebook of a mans rear end - with the words 'Happy Birthday' written on it. Then my name got mentioned as being the owner of said rear end, and when I asked why he thought it was me, he said 'Because you text'd it to me'

    I didn't!

    I asked him to send me a screen shot, as I didn't really believe him. But sure enough, in out text message exchange, there is indeed that picture and seemingly from me.....

    Can anyone shed some light on this please? It's either a hoax on his part, or my iPhone has been hacked by a comedian!

    it's more likely someone spoofed your SMS id.

    Sorry guys, I've been wound up!

    My mate promised me last night that he wasn't making it up, but today when I was going on about how weird it was and asking 'Do you think I should run it by the Apple store?' He caved in and admitted the wind up.

    Not a bad effort though, I was reasonably convinced!

    What worried me was how he could fit all those letters on it.
