While in China on assignment, I rented a phone and signed up for a local number rather than pay for the expensive roaming charges. I was going to be there for a long enough period that roaming charges would have paid for a brand new iPhone! The rented phone was basic, but that’s all I really needed. Make calls and accept SMS texts.
Then it happened. I received a text. I didn’t know from whom, or why!
I connected with my client and local contacts, but none of them had sent me any texts. I never figured out who sent this text, or what it meant. I should have someone translate it out of curiosity some day. My luck it will be spam!
