Default Strange text messages at 5 minute intervals

So I've been having this problem recently where I get these extremely strange text messages being sent to my phone. They have no sender associated with them, and just look like a bunch of gibberish. Here is a screenshot:

So it turns out that I cannot post images or links, but hopefully one of you can look at this:

Currently, I am getting the same message multiple times every 5 minutes. At first I just sort of ignored it, and one day I decided I would just go ahead and delete all the messages. As soon as I deleted them, they just kept on coming back at 5 minute intervals.

I am on Sprint on the Nexus S 4G (Probably obvious from the subforum).

My phone has also been doing other weird things lately. Sometimes when I lay it flat on a surface, it will just reboot itself constantly. I'm not sure if this is related to the text messages or not.

Also, the messages only show up in the "Messaging" app which I don't really use. They don't show up in Google Voice at all.

Edit: Just did a factory reset, the messages are still coming in.
