Sanjana, Surbhi aur unke kayi naye dost aayein hai chat room pe. Bus dial karein 55313@Rs9/min aur kare unse dher saary baatein.

I’m a Vodafone subscriber and every spam SMS they send me, like the one above, is prefixed with VD, for, I assume, Vodafone. So, for example, an SMS containing offers would be called ‘VD Offers’.

Anyways, I would certainly have called “Sanjana, Surbhi aur unke kayi naye dost” if it wasn’t for the message title: VD Dost.

P.S: For those not conversant with Hindi, the SMS literally translates to:

Sanjana, Surbhi and their new friends have come to the chat room. All you have to do is to dial 55313@Rs9/min and talk to them all you want.
'Dost', of course, translates to 'friend'.

Dear Mr Chomu made this mistake of calling the number in AXE ad from my phone. Now I get an SMS everyday:

"Hey AXE man.. This is Tanya here.. waiting to hear from you"

i think its something else. after i read your post i just scanned my phone inbox and c what i noticed.

AM-icici bank
AD-idbi bank
Ad- hdfc bank
AM-hdfc bank (credit card)
TM- icici bank

its some kind of codification, i have deleted the airtel messages so i dont have idea abt wht airtel sends

Airtel sends msgs as AX-Airtel.. the first letter signifies the operator/carrier used..
the second letter signifies the circle from which it is being sent..

all this because of bulk message senders, who have the first 3 digits for id purposes, and the next 8 for forwarding..
