Over the years that I have had Koodo I have never had a squeak of a problem. Koodo has always been there for me.
I chose not to use my data in an effort to keep costs down. I typically only text and sometimes call my kids and my grandkids or the odd friend.
Most everyone, that I deal with, know that I don't/won't use data. Lately, I have been receiving text attachments with the label for "download" in the body of a text and assuming it's coming from the person I'm dealing with at that time. The person on the other end claims they are NOT sending any attachments. For a while I had to remind them I don't do data. Eventually they say "we know that why do you ask?" but when I respond to them they don't see what I see in the thread of texts.
I don't know what is inside these attachments, harmful or simple advertising AND they're all unsolicited. But what I do know is I would have to turn on my data to "download" and see what they are. That creates a cost factor and what else might I be receiving or accepting that could be unwanted?
My daughter-in-law and I both received that alert from 5143 re Android Stagefright issue, so I am not referring to that.
Not to point fingers but is there a tracking system where Koodo might see that I don't use my data and this might be an effort for me to turn on data, for revenue generating, just to see some silly, ridiculous ad? I don't know; or is it something else where I might have been hacked? (sorry, don't know much about that stuff?)
I'm just a grandpa that could use some help and advice
