Text Flooder App Problem
The Text Flooder App that is available to the Android Market allows one to send any number of text messages to another person at a fixed and consistent rate. These text messages are received non-stop.
Problem here is, if an Android user decides to send 1500 text messages to an iPhone owner, that iPhone owner is basically locked out of their phone until all 1500 text messages have been received. This is due to the fact that the text message pop-up window appears and stops what your doing in order to present you with the option to close or view the received message.
Why is this Text Flooder app even allowed in the Android Market? It is a total waste and a complete nuisance!
Is there anyway to deal with this on the iPhone without having to block numbers or change your own? It gets very very aggravating to be attacked by this app and locked out of your phone until you've received 5000 text messages.

Unfortunately, if you dot have an unlimited text messaging plan for your iPhone, you will get charged for going over your limit. This app is ridiculous and should be removed from the android market. Or perhaps Apple can release a small software update that gives us the option to turn off the text message notification pop-up completely and just let badges show up on the messages app icon.

My friend just activated it. Still, why should he have to pay $5.00 a month just to keep from getting harassed by that stupid app. If that's the case, AT&T should wave that monthly fee.
This really is a big problem. Apps like that should not be allowed in any app store. I'm glad Apple didn't approve it.
