I believe my Motorola Cliq XT has been hacked.
Sunday 29th of May 2011
Alright, here's the story: A couple of weeks ago, I went to my Cliq XT and opened the icon menu. When I opened the menu, there were no icons, but a message that said "scotty" I glared at it, confused. I then pressed down on the menu, then up on it, then suddenly the message was gone with all the icons available. I thought it was weird. The same thing happened last night, I opened the menu on my phone, then another message appeared where the Icons were supposed to be, this time it read "tricks" I'm not sure what the hell it is, because in all honesty, I believe my phone has been hacked.Here's a picture:
HELP! Has my phone been hacked or something?

I got a text from <insert address token> and when I clicked on it, it opened the text conversation I had with my friend. The actual message was a forward of a pic that is supposed to be locked away in my vault app. Thankfully it's nothing too bad. It made it look like it was from my friend but like I said it came up as <insert address token> and not his name when I got the notification. I deleted the message and the text conversation with my friend. I went into my vault app and deleted all the pics in it. Then all of a sudden I get a text from a number I don't know that says, "Wow." I texted back who is this but have not received a reply. My friend where the pics first showed up hasn't texted, so I'm hoping he didn't see the pic. OK WTF? I got a text from another friend asking if I want to do a home invasion tomorrow night. WTF??? What's weird is that the message details say he sent that text to me, my friend whose convo had the pic show up in, and the unknown number that texted me with wow. And it shows the same thing for the wow text being sent to me, thi

Anyone know how to tell if my phone is being hacked - i.e. my calls are being listened to? When I make a call, I hear intermittent clicking and static sounds. This happens not matter the signal strength or whether I am talking to a cell phone or land line.Thanks
Have I been hacked?
Tuesday 03rd of April 2012
My phone today (30 mins ago) started "controlling itself". I turned it off and back on. At lock screen i'm ok. When I unlock random programs open and screen scrolls. I managed to get the thing into airplane mode and no wifi on thinking i'd either been hacked or had by someone in the office. It's still happening even after re-start. I'm rooted but have not installed anything new in days (I think angry birds and bluestacks beta were the last two things i've installed). I found one post "My Droid2 Hacked" from 5-14-2011 but am reposting as there was no solution. Has anyone seen this or found a fix in the past year? Confused...
Has My Phone been hacked?!!!
Sunday 19th of May 2013
I let a stranger use my phone to call someone, and after he called them, my phone was in the usual sleep mode when its inactive but the weird part was that when i pressed the power button or the home button, it would not wake up or turn back on, and I pressed these buttons many times. He called the number 585 775 8777. When I got home I put the phone in the charger,and then it would wake up when i pressed the power button. It was at 65% so it could not have possibly ran out of batteries, so I am wondering during the time it could not be accessed ( was someone on the other end messing with my phone). I don't know if that is possible but i guess I need to just be careful since anything can happen. I know it was wrong of me to lend my phone and after this, I wont ever do that again. Can someone help me find out more about this dilemma tho, and can someone hack a phone just by having it call you, or having a phone number?

On a couple of occasions recently I have found a draft message that I haven't created in the text app on phone. There is no related message in the in box. The message when sent is an entry to a competion for an i phone. There is a number to contact to cancel messages but I'm loathed to use it.Has this happened to anyone else? Can anyone explain how they've created a draft message, has my phone been hacked? Thanks
My phone is going crazy & has a mind of it's own. hacked, virus?
Wednesday 05th of March 2014
I don't know if I have been hacked, have a virus or what. For about a month now my phone has been, scrolling screens on it's own, starting programs or apps, selecting things I am not trying to. When this starts, it locks me out, sometimes it will slow down and I can gain control, but most of the time the only buttons that work is for me if the power button. All other screen functions and buttons stop working. I have called AT&T and trouble shot with them and they don't really know. I do have over heating issues and I do have a small crack in the upper right corner of the screen that is under a 1/4 of an inch. The crack goes from just above the camera to the right corner. Because of this crack they say Samsung wont warranty it! I do have insurance and can get a replacement but I thought I should try something first! I have only had this phone for about 4 or 5 months. Any suggestions?
My email accounts have been hacked two times
Friday 23rd of May 2014
Hi, Now I'm tired. I've never root my device, nor make something stupid. I'm full secured, apart these facts. I have two incidents to report with Android. 1) With My Phone Samsung SGH-T589R While subscribing my email accounts, I has been asked to also subscribe my Hotmail email account. "Good idea !" So I've provided my Hotmail credentials... One day after, I got calls from my Hotmail contacts about spam. Even Microsoft told me that my account has been hacked when I've connected to my email account. So I changed my password, and stop to use my phone for something else than phone calls. 2) Recently With My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 My email accounts was subscribed for a long period without any trouble, until now. One of my account has been hacked after I've accepted the new security access requirements for LEGITIMATED apps. I can't remember the name of these applications. I have one requirement : please, so please, make these requirements OPTIONAL so that we can choose which access to give, and which access to forbid. Conclusion, I'll stop to use my Android devices for sensit
