Angry HELP PLEASE am i hacked?

Please Login to Remove!

Well basically my BB has called some random number on its own. This couldnt have been possible as it called someone at 12:55 and at this time i had chekced the time and put it away whlist locking it. The number then text me asking who i was and called me :/ and also asked where i live?

Later today another random number text me saying i miscalled them when i clearly didnt. My credit/money on my phone has gone :(
due to these phone calls which i clearly did not make.
Can anybody help me and do you think my Bb is hacked?

can anyone just tell me if this is possible cause im really worried? and also the number that text me saying 'who i am and where i live' was in my call log but the other number that text me today wasnt :/
thanks in advance

If you got the BB wet or dropped it, it may be damaged. Add any third party apps?

First, are you sure a number really was called from your BlackBerry? It is possible to get spam text messages.

If your BlackBerry did call out without your doing it on purpose, it is unlikely your were hacked, but it is possible you downloaded something, or that someone else with access to your BlackBerry installed something. In other words, there are no reported viruses or other malware that infect a BlackBerry; nothing gets on the BlackBerry unless the user or someone puts it there.

Are you noticing any button or keyboard troubles? My only other idea is moisture, but I would expect a speed dial number in that case. I don't know how likely it is for random numbers to be dialed if the cause is moisture.

Was your BlackBerry used, refurbished, or new, when you bought it?

What abour adpedue's question? I think the line of thought there is maybe something is installed on the BlackBerry from previous user. As you say you haven't installed any third party apps, and you aren't seeing any symptoms of device damage, that is a good question.

Also, does anyone else have access to your BlackBerry? Do you use a password and lock the device when you don't have it under your immediate control?

That's pretty much as far as it goes as to the question of what happened. My advice is to wipe the BlackBerry using JL_CMDER or BBSAK and reinstall the device software. Enable password and lock the device when you are sleeping or the BlackBerry is left out of your sight anytime. And don't loan the BlackBerry to anyone.
