    This is kind of old news, and I figured that good ole Stormy or PC would have covered it by now, but since they have not I just couldn't resist. There exist a bug in iOS that actually causes the phone to crash when a certain text is received. When I found out about this a few days ago I sent the message to my coworker and watched as he mouthed "What the crap". He happened to be in the middle of a Clash Of Clans raid. I busted out laughing and got my phone number blocked. The truely funny part is that there is no retaliation since im Android all the way! Apple has already responded to this and will be releasing a fix soon.

    To reboot your friends iphone simply text them this message.

    effective.

    What part of the bottom of the message is the info that needs to be texted? Are we talking the whole string below, or some part of it?

    What I want to know is how they ever figured out this string. It's such an obscure collection of data I couldn't have been purely by accident.

    I think apple patched this because I tried sending it like 3 times to my girlfriend's iPhone 5 (with permission, of course ;P) and it just doesn't even receive the message! Gets any other text from me just fine haha.
