    I followed the link that was posted and when asked for a phone number I gave a number that is not on a tracphone account of any brand. It just went thru to a mobile website that had options for search, sports and news, shopping etc. When I clicked on sports and went thru it took me to foxsports and had the latest headlines but the format seemed a little off somehow. The page did load a little quicker than normal. Seems like maybe it forces you to go thru their server or something and maybe they cut down the content some to make things appear quicker. When I closed that window and reopened my browser everything appears normal again so I don't know what the point it cuz it seems like you would have to click that link everytime you wanted to experience the web thru their "enhanced browser" .

    When I got that message brought up in my browser, which randomly popped up while browsing, I skipped the phone number thing and same little homepage thing was brought up.

    Just Straight Talk spamming you.

    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.
