    Relax, nobody can steal stuff from or infect your phone by text message.

    That isn't entirely true.

    Where did you husband read that all android phones were hacked?

    I think he may have misunderstood the story of the vulnerability using unsecured wifi, which of course can happen to any device using unsecured wifi.

    i occasionally (less than 10 in past year) get 4-number senders SMS, but most are advertisors. either from sprint or other who has your phone number. some gives an option to opt-out, but most of the time i just delete and ignore.
