Today the weirdest thing ever happened with my Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.
I had it in the pocket of my pants while I was walking home. I only took it out once and saw that my boyfriend whatsapped me, but I didn't open it, instead I put back the phone in my pocket. Nothing else.
When I arrived at home a few minutes later I saw that the phone sent my boyfriend an SMS, just saying 'Estoy en el cine' (I live in Latin America- Means 'I'm in the theatre').

This is really weird because I didn't type this message and so far I haven't found any example messages my phone just might have opened. And it sent it to my boyfriend and not to any other random person in my contact list. Already installed and ran a virus program but it hasn't found anything.


Does anyone know what could have happened? I really don't get it.

Thanks!

I have no answers but my LG Esteem used to randomly call people. On many occasions it would start calling from another room, or from my car seat when I hadn't touched it in quite a while.

I had a factory reset done and that took care of it.

Same kind of thing happened recently on my Verizon iphone. I was texting with my son and suddenly it looked like he sent me a lewd message that said, "I didn't f... her!" and a crazy-looking winkie face. He didn't send it.

Maybe it's a bored telecommunications worker???

Oh, he saw the message as well.

Yup. Its whatsapp that is the issue. You might want to change your password in whatsapp.

Ok, I'll bite. What is "whatsapp"?

Never mind. I just looked it up and it doesn't apply to my iphone.
