Any chance you have a virus on your phone? Unlikely, but they do exist.
I know this is possible to do with the Iphone (SpoofApp: Caller ID Spoofing For Your Mobile Phone | SpoofApp.com) but have not seen it done yet with the droid. BUt I believe that program only spoofs calls, not texts.
A simple way to check this.
Check on your Droid the outgoing text and show your wife so she knows you sent what you said she did instead of what she got.
Then call the police. They may refer you to the FBI as this violates several FCC laws for someone to hack your cell phone like this.
as far as "spoofing" a sent from number for sms is no prob. you dont even need a phone. hell, even verizon has a page that will let you send sms and u get to fill in the sent from data with any number u want.
the part about intercepting a sms is way more tricky. as far as i know, you basically would have to be on the inside of verizons network to do it. joe hackpack cant sit outside your house and MiM your cellphone.
my guess..., a really bored admin, maybe even already gave his 2 weeks notice or just plain ol dont give a ----, having some fun
so verizon's response was "According to our records, we have no known issues with 'man in the middle' capturing our customer's messages. I recommend contacting the fraud department"
I actually just looked at her inbox, and my original message came through, and THEN the edited message right after that.... so they didn't prevent my message from going through, just sent a copy of it with different text right after it... she didn't notice the one above it because of how the texts on the droid are laid out like a conversation... still sucks that someone was A. reading our conversation and B. spoofing my phone to send her a mean message...
You could be lying like no other and I would still enjoy this thread.
Sorry that it is at your expense, but if a loophole such as this is available it leads to endless possibilities not just with sms.
Oops, what I said yesterday was wrong (I was looking at the message i forwarded when I said my original came through as well). Only the edited version of the message came through to her at the time I originally sent it...
Verizon tech rep checked the actual network send/receive times and it was only 7 seconds between the time it sent from my phone and received on hers... no way the message could have left my phone, gotten intercepted by someone, who then edited it, and gotten to her phone, in that short amount of time, especially since it was a whole sentence... only possibility if someone didn't physically do it is that one of my apps or her apps has spyware in it that auto inserted text based on keywords, which seems to be very possible considering there is not much of a filter of what apps get in the market.
Still slightly paranoid about sending anything even slightly personal in a text.
Spyware sounds plausible, given the time frame of 7 seconds.
There is also the possibility, however remote, that part of someone else's text message wound up mixed up with the one you sent, but, the fact that the sentence that was added was in context, kind of goes against that theory.
