    Default mysterious spam message on my iphone

    I get this strange message on my iphone

    it says Call Back 03 9696 6003

    I am an Optus subscriber. Has anyone any idea what this is? It happens to my partners phone too.

    Gracious. Muuchous.

    From Optus' website:

    Missed Call Service
    Now you’ll never miss that important call.
    With Missed Call Service, we’ll send you a text message whenever you miss a phone call, at no extra charge to you (when you’re in Australia).

    You'll be covered when you:

    Are out of a coverage area
    Have your phone switched off
    Are busy on another call
    Are just screening someone
    Your caller can leave either a short 10 second voice message or their number for a call back. We’ll convert it to a text that you’ll get when your phone is back in action. Great stuff, huh?
    Googled and it gave me: Burckhardt Barry - (03) 9696 6003 - and Consulease Pty Ltd, phone# 03 9696 6003, Southbank VIC, , 3006

    Maybe just call em and find out what they want?

    What is the number that's sending the message? Can you screenshot it?

    That's the point.... it isn't a message. it just appears on the home screen when the keypad is locked, as soon as i swipe the phone into action it disappears. I thought it might have been a reminder but i have no reminders.

    problem solved yes i did have a reminder to call him from a few months back. Set to remind me when i was on my way home!
