Malware spam FAIL: "Thank you for your order!" / DoNotReply@ikea.com

This fake financial spam is not from IKEA, but it instead a simple forgery. I can only assume that it is meant to have a malicious attachment, but due to a formatting error it may not be visible.

Thank you. I just received this email and I used my iPhone to read it. I clicked the invoice number and my phone just called the invoice number. Does that mean I opened the malicious document? Will my phone be infected :( ?
