    Don't ever download anything sent to you like that.

    If you truly believe it is from your provider (I doubt it is), call them and ask.

    Treat this like any spam email with an attachment you would get.

    Bad idea. That's not a message from the (cell) provider, If it was, they would provide more than a simple blank text with just an unidentified link. Actually, they wouldn't even bother send you links via text either.

    More than like likely what you've got is a spoofed text that's linking to malware of some sort. Best to delete it and carry on.

    Wow yeah sorry, i missed the "blank" part!
    what makes you think your carrier sent it?
    If you didnt ask them for anything and dont need anything from them then its not important so just delete :thumbup:
