Weird spam messages with weird statusbar icon - Galaxy Nexus - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts


Monday 08th of October 2012 / androidforum.com
Hey,Just switched from an iPhone 4 to a galaxy nexus GSM unlocked running the vanilla jellybean update. I downloaded a speed dial widget from the google play store, and weird messages started appearing on my phone. i've since uninstalled the widget, but they keep coming.They appear only in the notification tray. They are entirely in Chinese characters, and one tried to download something onto my phone when i accidentally clicked it. Whatever downloaded was not successful in installing itself. Android stopped it because it was not from the play store.I get maybe 3 or 4 of these a day now. At first i thought they were texts, as the icon next to them was a speech bubble with 3 or 4 lines in it representing text in the speech bubble.I launched the message app to check my texts, but it wasnt there. It's not the regular text symbol with the smiley in the bubble. It looks like a speech bubble with text in it. What kind of messages are these? I want to figure this out so I can get rid of them by blocking or other means.I wasn't expecting spyware to be the problem I had with andro

Weird Galaxy Note 2! Keep resetting but texts and contacts keep coming back!


Thursday 21st of March 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi everyone, Ive been owning an android since Nexus one, then the S and then Galaxy Nexus till few days ago when i decided to buy a Galaxy Note from Ebay. I am with verizon, so after i switched my sim card from my galaxy nexus to the new note 2, after few minutes, it keeps downloading / syncing some text messages. Suddenly out of nowhere these text messages appear with someone elses conversation. After few minutes some other contacts appear in my contacts list too. None i know.Reset the whole phone again, this time did not log into any account and the same thing happens.reset another time and this time, removed the sim card and connected with WiFi only and still all the stuff appeared. Usually when I reset the phone to factory settings, it tuns off an on few times and acts weird for few minutes until all these messages and contacts appear. I have checked and i am not signed into any account?! Don't know how these text messages keep appearing Can someone help?

weird issues with nexus 4 after 4.3


Saturday 03rd of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So o noticed some weird little things happening with my nexus 4. I originally did the work around to get 4.3 that was talked about on the forums. But after doing so I started getting issues with the play store and these weird error messages. So, to be safe I did a factory restore. But I noticed 4.3 was still on the phone. But since then I have noticed a few weird issues. First, it seems like my phone is perhaps stuttering a bit more. Also, I noticed a weird issue with the audible app showing three of the same notification icon in my status bar. Its pretty annoying. Would the factory reset even fix any damage I did or may have done to the Google services or the phone with that weird work around?

Weird situation involving messaging replica, possible virus


Friday 15th of November 2013 / androidforums.com
Hello.My sister has a SAMSUNG Galaxy FAME and today she told me about a strange situation she's encountering. She says some friend of hers told her she's been sending some messages to him through hotmail messenger, even though she sent those messages to another person through facebook. The messages in question are completely random and from separate dates.How weird is that? Is this some kind of virus or just a messed up misunderstood situation? Is it even possible?Thanks in advance.

weird text files


Saturday 23rd of November 2013 / androidforums.com
I was checking through my files on es file explorer, and I found the folder com.google.apps.translate. so I looked in there and there were tons of weird text files saved in there. They all had weird messages like "the Muslims have defeated Israel" "Japan has invaded China" "boobs massage"masturbate" "heil hitler" and other weird messages in different languages. Can I anyone explain to me what these are? And why are they saved to Google translate?
