U have been warned.

A MOBILE phone company have been rapped by advertising watchdogs for sending out abusive text messages urging customers to buy a flashier handset.

The message sent by Phonetastic UK reads: "You are a d*** and I am going to kick your head in ya big useless donkey. Upgrade ur mob."

The Advertising Standards Authority launched a probe after receiving a complaint from a customer in Glasgow.

They ruled the message was "likely to cause serious offence to recipients" and warned the firm not to send it out again.
