Who needs mediums anymore? they have mobiles up "there" you know....
A while ago my friend had Yoda as a text tone saying "mmmmmm message from the Dark Side you have!" so being a Star Wars geek, naturally I got him to bluetooth it to me! Because it sounded cool, clearly not for it's ability to impress the laydeez (unless they're 5'1, fat, green and have 6 tits, but that's enough talk about Sharon Matthews & her clan)

My auntie Pat died (collective "awwwww" anyone?) and a few days after the funeral, Yoda chirps up from my pocket - I almost shat myself when I read the following:

"Auntie Pat - Just to let you all know, this is my new number! Hope you're all ok"

I'm not superstitious by any means, but this was a first when it comes to communicating with the dead.... I was going to ask whether her service provider was hal-o2, but simply sent a "Hi, I'm fine, who are you?" reply back to the text from my deceased auntie.... turns out her family had gone round to clear up the house, and my cousin had found her mobile and decided to nab it - he'd left his name off the message!

apologies for length, I was only aiming for 160 characters!
