It would be unusual for your phone to be able to create texts and send to people. Is there a record of the sent text on your phone?

It would be rather simple for someone to spoof your number, and send texts which APPEAR to be coming from your phone. Unfortunately there is little anyone can do about this.

Is there proof from the other party this is happening?
