Second is SMS exploits its simple certain phones like the Iphone and now a couple others have "exploits" which as flaws in their programming that allows attacker to pass codes and execute codes inside the program that will allow them either direct or in-direct access via privilege escalation to your phone and take over it... did the message end with a strange box? or the character you couldn't show here was a strange box? Its a clever tactic in use to hide the box in a serie of weird characters so alot of people won't even bother about it thinking its just a joke or a fluke by their telco...

One of the texts
"yo[ 2Ça9 åò0ù ¿å y M ~ >@D< ¿U"
I can't explain the date, but I can take a stab at the symbols. Sometimes my wife or a friend will send a message in Japanese or Chinese to my English only phone by mistake. The messages always comes in a mess of symbols that look like that. So maybe your mom got a message in another language and her phone can't display it.

My God ATS, the hell is wrong with this site anymore...
