I think my phone has a virus- possibly stage fright? Friends have told me that I have messaged them when I haven't. What do I do? How do I get rid of it?

Do you have an antivirus on your phone? I use Avast, iit is free, it works like a charm. If you install the Avast app and scan your phone with it, you might be able to get rid of the virus. I never had one (virus).

What do the messages sent to your friends from your number say exactly?

If you're sure there is something wrong with your mobile and installing Antivirus doesn't increase your confidence in the device I would suggest you back up your mobile and save anything you don't want to lose then reset to factory settings. A pain to do but sometimes worth the effort.
