Jimmienomam stated it was a scam above, but I thought I should comment after your post.
That text is not from Best Buy, so there is very little we can do. This is a scam and we are well aware of it. In all honestly, I actually received the same text message a few days back. I can tell you, that we are actively working to see if there is anyway to get this to stop in the future. It is tough, because the text comes from multiple numbers.
I also got another text containing the same information with a competitors name. I appreciate you letting us know you received the text as well!

I made a purchase today in a Best Buy store and my phone was updated there (phone in specific). I received the same txt today as well...somehow they got into the computers in the store?! this is scary...
