## Crazy text messages

My girlfriend has been receiving crazy text messages on her new phone, ever since she got it. Finally, the crazy person began calling her, realized she had the wrong number, and we think the messages are therefore stopped. However, we've been having a good time trying to decipher these insane text messages. We thought maybe the PF community would be able to help.

Here's one:

Code:
Gud pm agnes c baby
wong.Musta n?Me
intrvw uli me s apr 4
umga.Bk skli twgn k ng
mbc.Pls help me.Tnks u
so much.
Anyone here speak insane-text-message-ese?

 Recognitions: Gold Member Science Advisor Staff Emeritus Yeah, we got the obvious stuff: Good evening Agnes... something about an interview on April 4th... Please help me, thank you so much. We're thinking maybe "Bk skli twgn k ng mbc" is an english-alphabet transliteration of a foreign language, because we can't think of any english words which might be abbreviated by "twgn." If it helps, we think the person's number is from the Phillipines, so maybe it's transliterated Filipino. (011639...) - Warren

It doesn't help that it's interspersed with bad grammar ...if you can call it that...along with text message abbreviations.

I think it's say "Me interview..." meaning, "My interview..."

Still can't figure out "uli.' Maybe that's where the interview is (one google result that sounds possible: http://www.uli.com.tw/eng/index_eng.php). My interview (at uli) is April 4 (umga).

I was wondering if umga is a location, and learned it's one of the Aleutian Islands, so maybe his interview for ULi, is on Umga Island. (This is sort of fun, like a word puzzle...though I can't see how this form of communication is at all efficient when it's so ambiguous to translate!)

I'm thinking "Bk" is back, meaning something about his return.

Edit: Even this "translator" can't figure it out! http://www.transl8it.com/cgi-win/index.pl?convertPL

 I'm scared, what the hell O_O EDIT: Call the kid and ask him/her. EDIT2: Why did the germans need the enigma when they could have used this?

Maybe because they actually needed to be able to translate it at the other end?

 This could still be useful for cryptography. I believe we may have stumbled upon a perfect entropy source!

 Recognitions: Gold Member Science Advisor Staff Emeritus Well, I wasn't going to mention that interpretation (too vulgar to link here), but even that makes no sense unless this person somehow has text message tourette's syndrome.

Could be coincidence. We're dealing with three-letter and four-letter words here.

It's tagalog. Since text messaging is predominantly popular in the Phillippines, it's most likely a message that got redirected.

Here's a translation:

Gud pm agnes c baby - (Good private message Agnes c baby.)
wong - (most likely the caller's name)
musta n? - (how are you?) Me - (me)
intrvw uli me s apr 4 - (I will be interviewed again on April 4)
umga.Bk skli twgn k ng - (In the morning I may call you again. Umaga = morning)
mbc.Pls help me.Tnks u - mbc - (dont know what that means, most likely an abrrev. for something) Tnks u so much.- (Thank you so much)
