    Good Evening =)

    Since I have my iPhone 3G jailbroken on 3.0 Push didn't work so I had to download that Push Fix from Cydia, and after that Push notifications were working fine BUT,

    I have the feeling that I receive Push messages that are not meant to be sent to my device, that belong to someone else.

    First of all I thought it would just be spam through MSN or sth. like that, but I even got those "spam" messages after loging out from IM+ (I'm sure I was logged off because I went online with my MacBook) but the messages kept om coming. So I took a deeper look at them and realized. This isn't spam. It was something like:

    "Sounds like a great idea, I'll call you later." or "Chinese would be just fine. But make sure it's not too expensive. gn8"

    Since I have no english contacts in my list, and I don't think that I receive Spam because I am not logged in I seriously came to the conclusion.

    My iPhone is getting the Push notifications from another device!!!

    So ... What should I do now?

    bye, Smirnoff

    U don't wanna change it lol.

    UDID = Unique Device Identi-Fier.

    Basically, each iDevice has one and its Unique, but you can change it if u want, but its highly unrecommended.

    I haven't changed it, or at least I hope so. Perhaps the Push Fix did it?
    I don't know.

    I do not use this Push fix myself, but I guess it works simply by installing a certificate obtained from an activated iPhone. A lot of people are probably using that same cert and it seems the messages can get mixed up between the different devices sharing that cert.
