    I received a copy of a Civil Service Monthly pensioners magazine and amongst the letters was a note from a subscriber warning not to answer any mobile phone call which displays the word "ACE" on the screen.

    Quote, "If you answer the call your phone will be infected with a virus. The virus will erase all IMRI and IMSI information from both your phone and sim card which will render it useless! This information has been confirmed with Motorola and Nokia. There are over 3 million phones worldwide infected. You can check this out on the CNN website"

    I've had a scout round CNN.com and can't see anything.

    Anyone else heard of this?

    Well.....true or not, don't answer any calls from "ACE" :eek:
