ICSTIS moves on anonymous test messaging service

ICSTIS, the premium rate telecoms watch-dog, has issued a consultation document on the subject of anonymous text messages.

These usually centre on Web sites that allow people to send anonymous messages, normally in return for punters dialling a premium rate phone number or texting a premium rate text number.

Ostensibly used for texting flirty-type messages, ICSTIS has received complaints that some people are using the service to send messages that either frighten or intimidate mobile phone users.

At first I was a bit skeptical about such activities, but reading through the consultation document reveals that some *%&%%&^&s are sending some really nasty messages to mobile phone users.

The document is a real eye-opener - check it out here...
