orkut gets lots of such junk. it used to be true once, that too only in usa, long back in history when mobile thing was new and proper standards were not set. not anymore. but in india mobile entry was late and advantage was that it was secure by then.

the funny thing is that i even got spam messages after leaving orkut. i guess coz the profile still stays connected to your gmail id.
