What do the texts say? Are you on Virgin yourself?

I'm on virgin but I don't think they can open them as they text and ask what I've sent them now

That sounds slightly suspicious. How often are they getting them?

Have you installed any "free" software (e.g. games) that has permission to access your contact list plus either data or SMS?

I would do a factory reset to remove any spyware and dodgy apps, also consider not restoring any saved data as it may well be corrupt

Hi michelle73

Welcome to the community Smiley Happy

Sorry to hear your friends have received strange texts from you that you haven't sent.

As we've not heard from you for a few days, I just wondered if you'd managed to get this sorted out?

Out of interest, what type of phone do you have?

Many thanks
