    Did anybody else get an ifriendshare message? This is what was sent to me "A program named iFriendshare is trying to contact you. To allow for 24 hours, reply A. To always allow, reply W. Reply D to reject." Something just seems fishy about this message, I tried googling it and so far not much has come up

    yeah thats what I thought, after a google search it seems some thunderbolt users got the message also but nobody seems to know what it is from. Something definitely seems fishy

    No offence, but it sounds like a pretty crappy way to mine data. Maybe if your text would explain a bit about what and who sent the message, people would actually accept it?

    I'm going to accept it, not because i'm dumb or nieve, but instead so i can report to my friends here at android central exactly what the fish smell is.

    THIS JUST IN! It's pretty legit. Download the app on the market it's called iFriend. It is literally just an app that tells you what carrier and model of phone your friend's are using. Also, it is free.

    I just got this text too. Thank you for the info... did you figure out who entered your number? What's the point of it..? If my friends need to know what phone/carrier I have, they could just ask me... This sounds like something that a company I used to work for would do... it was a collection agency and we were instructed to do skeezy things like this in order to track down people we were skip tracing, their friends/relatives/anyone who has ever ever known the person.I worked there for 2 weeks and quit. Hated it and their crappy practices.

    After contacting my friends to see if it was something they were sending me I rejected it. Bad way to present a new application..

    I got the same message, but I use an iPhone... So why is this contacting ME?! I also don't understand anything about this phantom app or why it has anything to do with me. To be bluntly honest, I do not care what apps my friends are using, especially if it is not apple operated. Now please, someone tell me, why do I need this app on my iPhone or what could possibly interest me about it? :-/

    Not trying to be rude, but nobody on this forum is going to have any answers for you about your iPhone.

    Well if the app applies to everyone, maybe I'm not the only one with an iPhone that got the message. iFriend person who replied says it's applicable to every carrier and model. Ya dig? I rejected the request. Thanks all.

    I just received one, I can't figure out why. I'm not going to answer it though. Probably not a good idea to acknowledge. Might be a scam to get money.
