Tachyon Interference?

This new Kyocera is impressive!

I just got a text on my new phone dated January 18.

Update: And I just now figured out how to do a screencap of it too.

Today is the 15th.
The text is reminding me that my voice mail subscription ends tomorrow...which presumably means in 4 days.

I'm getting spam from the future.

"Oh I'm sure it's nothing!"

1 I was surprised that my latest phone didn't have a voice mail app, until suddenly I had to install one. I was used to calling the voicemail number, but instead, I now get texts that apparently signal the phone to download the recordings, and annoyingly, it won't do it over WiFi.
Also, the volume is incredibly low.

2 I've been with Verizon for a year and a half or so and I haven't even bothered setting up my voicemail yet.  If I did it would just get filled up with in medias res garbage from spammers.
Yesterday I answered a "lower your Visa interest rate" call.  I've taken to doing that and trolling the callers to waste their time since they're so willing to waste mine.  I asked them how many times a day they were going to call me.  Sometimes I ask which bank my Visa card is with.
Today a "your Apple has a virus" or whatever scammer called me--I didn't even listen to the rest of the pitch, just hit 1.  Told the guy my day was great when he asked, and then asked why they were calling me when I don't own any Apple devices.  He said "Sir, this is Apple technical support calling you" and hung up in the middle of a word.
