Default Random Text messages = virus?

Please Login to Remove!

Someone text'd me a weird message so I called them and somebody answered telling me that I'd sent them a picture from my phone. I don't know this person, the number was from washington and I live in CA, and they returned the message with a picture to me. It looks like one of those odd IM viruses. Has anyone heard of this?

thanks,
Tom

There are no viruses for BlackBerrys. Most likely some spammer used your account as a return address for his nefarious activities. Doesn't mean you account has necessarily been compromised, but you might want to change your password just to be safe.
