    On my new Android phone I setup my Google Voice number and set it as my primary number to use on the phone.

    I have had the phone for 3 days and have had my Google Voice acct for over a year with never an issue with it.

    This morning, the only change I made to my Android phone was adding
    an app from the app store called "Facebook Touch".

    About 2 hours later, I learned that EVERY contact on my Google
    Voice contact list, which I did a sync with on my phone, got SPAM
    with the same SPAM -- It was texted out to everyone..here was the
    message --

    Dear, I have tried to purchase some products from a business company, I have attracted by high quality products, low price and enthusiastic services, I think if you are free, you can go to see: styleele.com ,picking your interesting... <<followed by a link here>>

    Anyone else had this type of issue? I can't imagine that it could not have
    come from the phone...maybe from that Facebook Touch app as that application had a lot of SPAM just within the application itself (its not deleletd)...

    Any suggestions as to how this might have happened on my phone would be appreciated...

    Well considering the only 'official' facebook app is called 'Facebook" and not "facebook touch" its HIGHLY possible thats your problem.
