Spam, spam, cellphone and spam

2003-03-27 , ,

After three years of cellular phone messaging I finally got spam. Yay, it was too good to last. I irregularly received calls with suspect numbers but no one had dumped crap into my message box until today. It had to come from someone brute-forcing numbers through Verizon’s gateway as my phone number is not published anywhere for harvesting and I direct (the very few) people who want to email me through the phone to an account in my vanity domain which forwards to my cellular service. It’s only a matter of time before my work pager starts getting it too. Hopefully Skytel practices better gateway hygiene, at least the less predictable number series presents something of a challenge.
