I use 2 other computers to access my emails , but they are both turned off at the time these spams seem to go out. I presume it is comming via the iPhone as it is the only new component of my browsing environment ,and the other 2 PCs have good current security software. i can only conclude that malware has entered the iPhone, ?? via and app, and is being used to send spamiPhone 4, iOS 4

I had this exact same problem, starting about 30 minutes ago. I got a message from 1 (410) 000-001 with a strange message that included a square, and then suddenly my yahoomail inbox was flooded with returned messages, and the friend who I was with confirmed that he recieved a message from me that was also sent to a group of people from my mailbox, apparently in alphabetical order. I turned off my phone, changed my mail password, but I have no way to confirm if the messages have stopped. Have you heard anything back, or has anyone else had this problem?

Same thing with my iPhone this morning. Received a text message and deleted it without clicking it. Emails went out through my gmail to my contacts. The spam was a work from home for money site.

It isn't jailbroken. I posted my full question under https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4643090 . I saw this one after I posted mine. Should I take my phone to Verizon or Apple to take a look at it?
