this out one of my g,daughters had sent me text message when i went to look it said empty anyone no what that means


yetty Report 23 Jun 2008 08:08

It means , does anybody have an empty house, (parents are out) so friends can have a bit of a get together. You probably were not meant to get the message, she would have ticked her friends in the contacts page, and you were ticked by mistake. maybe you should reply with a yes and see how many turn up !!!

Sometimes when a message gets sent before text is put into it it comes up the other end saying 'EMPTY'. Is that a possibility?

if it says 'empty' in the middle of the screen - rather than like it's been typed in - then she has just accidently sent a blank text to you .......
