does my phone have a virus? - October 18th 2017, 04:01 PM

its been really strange because i get a text a day usually and it's normally under a different name, but nobody i recognize and they talk about meeting up for one night for sex and i havent been giving my number to anyone like that or leaving it on my profile. i dont even do that kind of thing because i want only something meaningful one day
so im wondering if its normal for people to get that kind of text message or if somethings really wrong with my phone

It could be a wrong number or something, usually viruses on phones don't send text messages. If a link is attached to the text, don't click it because that would cause you to get a virus. You can block the numbers but it might be scammers and wrong numbers texting you.


THE POINT OF SINGULARITY IS NOTHING AS NOTHING BEGAN EVERYTHING
PULSING IN THE EXPAND CONSUME WITHOUT BARRIER OR BORDER
IT IS DARK BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKNESS IT IS OVER BECAUSE IT IS THE END
THERE IS NO SENTRY BECAUSE NONE DARE APPROACH
IT HAS NEVER BEEN AND IT IS ALL THAT EVER WAS
AT THE CENTER YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER
YOU DO NOT FIND YOURSELF THERE IS NO CENTER AND THERE IS NO YOU THERE IS ONLY MADNESS
WE ARE ALL HERE NOW.

WE ARE.

it might be a spam bot (like the above reply says, viruses don't send text messages) who randomly got your number. they might have just randomly typed in a number and got yours. as long as you don't click any links and just block and ignore them you should be fine.
