Hi all. I have had the same mobile number for about 10 years and only ever had one problem with spam text messages, that was 7 years ago.

However, since moving onto Android i have recieved a message every few weeks. Usually they are about wiping debts or accident law suits and come from standard mobile numbers, not premium ones. Is this just a coincidence or have i been lax in some form of personal security with apps or 3G internet?

Usually when getting those type messages, your number has been sold off to a bunch of companies that just spam users with their advertisements.
