    It’s a bug. I think it’s Unicode for AT&T

    I am thinking a character encoding error. Still fun to see, thanks for sharing.

    Essentially yes, but the accurate translation is "All financial info on phone downloaded to China. All your base are belong to us!"

    LOL. This is the 2nd time in recent memory that someone posts this.
