Ive just upgraded my phone through O2 and now Ive received text messages as a survey on the service. The texts are coming from 29797.

Are these fake premium rate texts pretending to be O2 to get replys?

I searched on google and nothing to suggest it was a premium text. Giffgaff, which runs on O2  stated on their forum its from O2 used for surveys https://community.giffgaff.com/d/33069510-text-messages-to-29797/5 

However if you aren't sure then just delete it. (which is what I would do) I find texts from O2 generally come from mycare @ O2.

The last text survey I had from O2 came from 24141
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
