    How about the full text of the message? My GUESS is that it is a service update for roaming or some such and not a phone update.

    Here is the text message: FREE Verizon Wireless software update! Due to network changes, please dial *228, press SEND & choose option 2. This call is airtime free.

    This is just the command to update your PRL (preferred roaming list?)

    That should be safe but to be safest make sure you're not roaming. Don't expect any phone updates. It probably will just update roaming tables hence "network changes".
