Send an anonymous text message on Valentine's Day with Nokia

A bit of fun for Valentine's Day. Says on the website that you can create a message now for free and then they'll send it automatically on Feb 14th. Great if you're likely to forget (and find yourself in a whole world of pain)!

Why would anyone need your mobile number to send an electronic text. Sounds like a good way to me to get as many mobile numbers as they can.

nice - thanks

Nice one!

On the first screen type the details and message and give mobile numbers as normal. On the second screen instead of inputting your friends details use your own twice. Otherwise they will receive the email asking them to send a valentines message except it tells them YOU sent it. Which will make them wonder who you have been sending to also.....

I got another screen after I clicked the 'send' button on the first screen asking to input my friends details ie Name and email address which I didnt I used my own instead.

I take it no-one esle did...strange.

looks like detail collecting to me

thanks
It says it's free but under the t's and c's it states:

Any fees charged by Nokia will be announced separately in connection with the Service.

I'd assume that just means the mobile network may charge, but the site doesn't. So the person you send it to MAY get charged for receiving the message.

They're just covering their own backs incase someone does get charged.

I'd love to give it a go but I'm too paranoid. If they didn't want my mobile number I would, but as they do.... I think some people will be fine without

Clearly they cannot charge anyone since the sender can just put in any mobile phone number rather than their own.

i press the link and it comes up javascript

:prop: heat :prop:

lol ive been having fun with this.

good one..

excellent thanks

DO NOT ENTER YOUR DETAILS ON THIS SITE

Really, are people here so dumb that they can't differentiate between a nokia site and a fake one? I will give you a simple test. Just look at the footer of a website like nokia.co.uk (footer means links at the bottom of a webpage) and then have a look at the footer for this nokia cupid site. Every major website has links in the footer that point to its privacy policy, sitemap etc.

I'm sure nokiacupid.com cameinto existence some days backs and is infrining on the Nokia trademark. Once people at Nokia get to know, nokiacupid will come down.

This is for site nokiacupid.co.uk not .com

Both sites do have a link to a privacy policy as well in the footer!

nokiacupid.com doesn't look like it belongs to nokia for sure according to whois:

Hope they've got a way to filter out messages from stalkers and cyber-bullies :thinking:

Thanks

nope I've got a pay as you go and got a text message from one of those dating agencies and I got charged :oops: they then sent another message after wards telling me to ring this 01494 number that O2 insists is lo-call to get a refund as it was a technical error that I got the first message, so got to take the risk and hope they don't charge £1.50 per minute I ring them

Hm, when you click on 'privacy policy' or 'terms and conditions', nothing loads. I think your advice is right about this being fake.

Though whois mentions nothing about Nokia, contact web address is below it's a marketing company. It's linked from ]Nokia.co.uk's home page so it's safe.

I got to the 2nd screen, it said:


"Your message has been saved and will be sent on Valentine's Day. You can now send someone else an anonymous text. Or...
Tell your friends about this website

If you think your friends would like to send anonymous valentine's texts too, just enter their details below."


.... Its a tell your friends form and you needn't fill it in, nothing to worry about

as for the data collection, Nokia already spam me so i wasn't worried about 'em having my details again lol

I have sent a lovely quote to hubs, which was very true of the day we first met. All together now.............

Didn't receive anything

:x Hubs didn't get the quote I sent, which would of been a dead give away.....instead he received "you have a secret admiror, happy valentines". He was too scared to tell me! :roll:
