    Hoping somone here can help.

    I keep receiving a message from one of two numbers that i dont know. They always say KEEP THIS MESSAGE and then gives a IMEI number which is always the same.
    I dont want to reply to it and i just delete it but it is getting annoying now. Have installed Lookout but says my phone is clean.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Ring your service provider and ask them to block messages from those numbers.

    Since having my Desire I get a blank message from an anonymous sender every day or two. Anyone know what that is (Orange UK)?

    Yea it's a random Orange occurrence I think, normally happens when you restart the phone I believe. Just delete it!

    Thinking about it I don't recall having one since de-branding on Wednesday, so it seems as though it's linked to the Orange "junk software" on the handset rather than the mobile phone account. Another good reason to de-brand then.

    Anonymous messages are usually sms stored on the Sim card (these are things like the Orange Voicemail notifcation) - go into the standard messaging app and 'manage sim card messages'.

    Every time you reboot the phone automatically restores them to the messaging app - it's another one of those weird quirks of the Desire.

    That's why I like the phone - it has a soul! Unlike those clinical, lifeless Apple things... :)
