    Someone recieved a Text from me, that I didn't send.....

    Advertisement



    A friend of mine said that she recieved a text from me that I didn't send. Due to the content and time of night that it was sent.....it definitely wasn't me. I also didn't have that message in my "sent box" either. How could this be............anyone else had this prob with their Blackberry. What protects our phones from Hackers?

    Someone would have to be pretty tech savvy as far as I'm concerned to spoof the network and make it look like you sent a message to her. Are you sure you weren't drunk, or that someone else may have gotten a hold of your phone?

    There are ways, but they aren't common, and they aren't easy.

    Investigate the situation further - call your carrier. The best way to protect your phone from things like this is to not let anyone else touch your phone.

    Absolutely Positive! The message not only had nothing to do with me....someone texting about their kids....which I don't have, but it was at 2:45 AM when I was dead asleep. And..........I was alone last night....no one else has ever touched my phone. This is freaking me out.

    Wow, I've had this problem before too. I thought I was the only one. I would be getting random text messages and phone calls from people as far as Arizona and I live in California! It use to be pretty bad, but now the problem has gone down a little. Still cant figure what or who was doing this.

    If the message didn't relate to you (or if the person sending it didn't pretend to be you, i.e. it was just a strange random message sent), then call your carrier and they'll do what they can to fix it for you. There is always the occasional bug.

    Wow! You were alone on a Friday night? That's sad.

    Haha, just kidding man. What about if someone sends a text from their computer? If you send one from your service provider website, can you specify a number that you want it to be sent from? I don't know how it's possible.

    You people are funny..........I am a girl! It doesn't seem like someone was trying to be me, it just was some random message that had nothing to do with me.....from my phone. Maybe you are right....some fluke thing.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Is someone logged into your carrier account, they can send a text message to any number. It will look like it came from you, but will not show up in your sent messages...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well, if it wasn't you who sent the message, how do we know its actually you that posted this? Lol, jk. Just wanted to say that it has been a very long while since a thread like this cracked me up. Thread title and the first few postings, I was like 'whoa, that's trippy'. Then comes the gender twist... a thread can't get any better this.

    There are ways to send text messages to any cellphone anywhere in the world online. You have to input the number you want to show up as the from field so someone could have done it that way if it was done intentionally and not a fluke on the system.

    Spoofing it's great. Careful now days about giving out info.

    Just saw a little thing about cyber-bullying, where kids where spoofing each other and wrecking each others reputations. I'm so glad I'm not in high school anymore! Baby Mama Drama!! LOL!
