Nokia is now telling me to eat less, why?
December 31, 2008 4:28 PM   Subscribe

My phone (Nokia 6230i) has started giving me tips (which started tonight at 00:06 on the 01/01/09). When I turn on my phone, enter my PIN number and once it's got past the obligatory Nokia splash screen it gives me this tip: Tip Of The Day: Don't Eat Too Much! and here's the photo for you (sorry for the rubbish quality). Can some explain to me what the hell is going on?

If it's always the same thing, I wonder if a friend set a welcome note for you as a joke.

thanks for that, problem solved and the friend fessed up.

Also for reference, many times carriers will put a welcome message into the SIM card. For instance, in Greece, Vodafone says "Have a nice day!" or sometimes puts a message about some upcoming event.
