Default Unknown message format with link ?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
Within a few hours of getting my new Storm2 and the obligitary fiddling around session, I got a new message with a Yellow globe symbol as the icon. I was suprised. when I opened it. It said something like "message on its way" when I opened the message it contained a link. Which I definately didnt click on. I beleive that its called a browser push message, but please correct me if I am wrong ! I promptly deleted the message without opening the link, when I realised that it wasnt an official setup message etc from vodafone or blackberry. I just wanted to know whether there is any potential harm to your device by reading these messages, as I am paranoid about viruses and other malicious nastys. I hope I am ok since I only read the content of the mesage and didnt open the link. As a newbie I maybe being unneccessarily paranoid

Its a WAP Push message, or Browser MEssage.

If its a Browser Message I believe it comes from the carrier.
If its a WAP Push message, its something from the internet you've been looking at.
