Thread: O2 detecting jailbroken phones

    Default O2 detecting jailbroken phones
    So today i landed back in the UK from
    Dubai where i spend half my time, and where I use my legit unlocked iPhone originally provided by o2 but jailbroken. Upon turning my phone on after landing I received the following text from o2:

    "Our device monitoring service has identified your iPhone 3Gs is running a modified firmware. As a result if you do not update to the latest geniune apple firmw"

    now the text was cut off before it could actually issue it's warning...has anyone else received this text and have any idea what o2 are warning (perhaps you got the whole text...!)

    I've googled and can't find any reference to it so am assuming i am the first to receive such a warning?!

    Positive as the text came from O2UK with no number attached...only a company can send texts like that out as they pay to have their name appear instead of a number. No mate could do that!
