iPhone 4 raw SMS PDU Exploit – Effects and Replication

WP_iOSalertThe Text Messaging community had in effect, an earthquake last week, due to a discovery by pod2g. It was discovered that iOS shows the SMS UDH Reply Address within the user interface, instead of the original source number. In a nutshell you can send message from a normal on-net handset that appear to be coming from elsewhere to iPhone devices.

Different carriers will have different ways of dealing with the UDH content and you may find that your carrier strips it out, but on Vodafone New Zealand, the UDH data is transmitted fully to the recipient handset. It [...]

SMS is dead, yeah right!

We’ve all heard the hype over the past 10 years with media and bloggers proclaiming that today is the day SMS died. Heard these before…

  • MMS will kill SMS
  • ‘Push to talk’ will kill SMS (actual quote from a  Telco executive)
  • Blackberry Messenger will kill SMS
  • Email on Smart Phones will kill SMS
  • iMessage has killed TXT

Poor wee 160 character SMS/TXT messaging  is the first victim in the marketing of any new service and the first to be bullied in the media and by bloggers.  It’s a simple victim too.  It doesn’t  need the spotlight, nor want it.  It cant afford the spotlight as there is no owner of it with a huge marketing [...]

Introducing Messenger VI

Sometimes it feels like the more things change the more they stay the same and you are right… Messenger has changed so much in the last 10 years it almost looks exactly the same as it did in 2003.  Sure, we have added new features like email2sms, bulk sender, expanded address books, a mobile interface and more but it looks much the same as it did the night the Govenator said good night to both his families and went off to rescue Cali.

Erin, our new designer, impressed us in her second interview with a vision for the future of Messenger.  It was not hard to see how it would [...]

The Oakland Unified School District rolls out a Anonymous Text Messaging Platform

The Oakland Unified School District is always looking for innovative ways to leverage technology in order to make our schools safer and more secure. The Oakland Unified School District anonymous text messaging platform provides students with a very familiar means of rapidly notifying our Department of critical public safety issues that might otherwise go unreported. The mere fact that incidents such as weapons on campus can be reported in such a manner should have a powerful deterrent effect as well.
