Has anyone else received suspicious text from Fizz that instructs to accept OMA updates on phone? The OMA update package appears as an icon in upper left of phone, and when opened the phone itself gives a pretty strong warning to reject it. I have attached screenshots. (I wasn't sure which category to post this under.)

    Hello Mighty,
    Thank you for reaching out,
    The notification to install the updates are sent by Fizz when you activate your first Fizz mobile plan.
    You install them to have access to the network. The APN settings will be installed from there.
    Also, you can send the configuration from your Fizz account as well by going to my plans> manage plan> Advanced parameters > Fizz network parameters> Send to my phone.
    Here you can see more details: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/what-are-fizz-network-settings-apn

    Thank you for your understanding!
    Have a good one!
