    What makes you think you have been hacked? What problems are you having and when did they start? Have you downloaded any apps recently? This is one cause of issues with peoples phones. Some apps ask for permissions and we just click ok so we can use the app. Those authorizations to features of the phone are what causes most intrusions.

    It is actually my finance's phone. We have been harassed by his ex-wife and recently he has had many problems with his cell phone. But, yesterday, I received a text from his phone number that appeared as if it were to another woman, but accidentally sent to me. However, it was clear from the way it was worded, verbiage uses, etc that it wasn't from him. He was with me when his phone supposedly sent the message. It showed on my phone, but not his. The message stated something to the effect of "I can't wait to get to work in a few minutes so I can get my hands on you, etc. Problem is, he was with me and wasn't even working yesterday. He had taken the day off. She has done multiple things, but of course we need proof, not accusations.

    It may be you weren't hacked and someone sent the test to the wrong number. Either that or they are using one of the spoofing sites out there that can change a caller ID to make it look like it came from someone else.

    That's what I'm thinking...spoofing. The timing is just too coincidental. It came from my fiancé to me, so it wasn't from an outside number. I'm guessing if they used a spoofing site. Then it's completely unable to trace, correct?

    If you knew the spoofing site and they were willing to provide the info you could still have trouble finding out. If the sender were hiding behind something like a VPN or other masking app. I know you can send text messages to a phone from a computer. As an example to send a text message to a cell user on Verizon you would basically send an email to the phone number. Like this format:
    2032458283@vtext.com or using 2032458283@vzwpix.com  It depends on the content of the message.

    First & foremost, have you contacted your local administrator. It is not an easy task to catch the culprit for a general people, while local administrator/police has so many tools and man power to resolve the mystery.

    First, there's no evidence in anything you've written that indicates any phone was 'hacked'. That's almost certainly a dead end. Second, for me, the appropriate contact would be my state's Attorney General office. We don't know who'd be appropriate for you. It's very unlikely that any local police agency would or could do anything about it.
