    My Galaxy-using friend texted me this morning saying she keeps getting texts from me (iPhone 5) with downloadable links. I am not sending those nor are they showing up on my text conversation with her. Do I have a virus, have I been hacked? She is the only one who mentioned this. Also my phone is not jail broken. Thanks for any help.

    Something is most likely wrong with your friends phone. I don't know of any iPhone virus that causes it to send out secret text messages with download links.

    Perhaps your friend has another phone number and/or email address associated with your contact that someone else is using to send out some spam or something like that, which makes it seem like it's coming from you (based on the contact info your friend has for you in the phone)?
