I have been getting crap from Telstra for a while.

I used to be with One.Tel, and just after they went bust I started getting "Join Telstra so your service doesnt get disconnected"

Then after I joined telstra it was "call telstra on xxx to discuss your options." etc etc

And about a year ago (while I was still working for Optus) they where setting up services, so that people who say they want to receive infomation SMS's (aka spam) could get them based on the Cell they where in... ie - if Macca's in Auburn (sik mayte) paid optus, when optus customers where in the auburn cell, they could receive a message saying "Stop in at Auburn macca's for a big Mac" or something to that effect.
