I received this message today

 

Apple needs iPhone5 testers:The first 1000 users who visit http://celltestnkeep.com and enter code 1000 will get to test & keep the new iPhone5.

 

Is Apple aware of this? The phone number was 703-609-7910

 

I already contacted my provider (AT&T) and they said to inform Apple. I found other customers experiencing this as well while doing a search on the internet.

    It's called Spam.  File a complaint at www.donotcall.gov as well.

    Apple has nothing to do with it and can do nothing about it. You did the right thing by notifying your carrier. Also be sure you notify the FCC through the donotcall.gov site. That's pretty much all anyone can do.

    I find that hard to believe that Apple can do nothing about it or even doesn't care. Since it appears that at lease thousands of customers are getting this text I can't imagine why Apple's legal team would not want to get involved.

    Well, they might care... no one here really knows.

    But this thread is not notifying Apple as this is a user to user support forum.

     

    If you want/need to contact Apple, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom.
