I think ive been hacked or my phone has a bug

I received a message from a guy called Layn today he asked me who I was I told him my name and I asked him how it was possible that I could speak to him because I had not received any invitations from him he told me he did not know so I made a status on bbm saying what had just happened to me and he disappeared off my bbm after all this my boyfriend phoned me and he said their was a echo on his side I have no idea if this is a hacker or a bug but I can't believe these thing are possible this is against all privacy laws we have no privacy and I suggest that if blackberry can't sort this out people should not buy blackberry because these people are invading our privacy we have rights!

Your BlackBerry has not been hacked. You're receiving emails from a spammer or from some contact of yours who's PC has been caught up in some virus or hacked itself.
If you can explain in more detail how your BlackBerry 'formated' itself all by itself, or what you say, it would be helpful.
For NOW, I would tell you to backup your device IMMEDIATELY to your PC, using the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

I know there is some language barrier here, but let's try this.

Please clarify that.

BlackBerry Desktop Software is software installed to your PC or MAC used for syncing data to and from the PC, backing up your handheld device data to your PC, and in some cases to install applications and sync media (files, pictures, videos) to your PC and handheld.

Wait, please explain this. Two hours ago you were also receiving more than 500 of these messages, is this now a second set of 500 messages? Or the same set you are still receving?

 

From what email address? Go to your email server and BLOCK or BLACKLIST that email sender. That is simple.

Is that X over a small picture of a battery?
