Hourly garbled text messages

Starting today, every hour on the hour, I receive a garbled sms message with nothing in the from line. If I try to reply, I get a "message not sent" notice. This is becoming annoying. Can anyone help?

I tried to paste the message here:

There are extra characters here that do not show on the phone.

A week ago for about 4 hours I got this exact same thing. I've also gotten these messages periodically over the past few months that I have had this phone. What's up?

I have been receiving the same type of texts (though not the same exact characters). It doesn't show a number, so I can't block it through the website. I've been getting them every five minutes for about an hour.

I'm getting this same problem on my Nexus S.  The same text with question mark symbols every 5 minutes since this afternoon!  Called the help desk and spoke with tech and customer service.  No one has any idea what this is and can't help.  They referred me to a store location but I doubt that will do any good either.  Never had these problems with AT&T or Verizon.  The other phone on my account doesn't do this.  I hope its not a Nexus S thing.

I'm getting the messages too.  They are coming through the same time that other people in my family are recieving Emergency weather alerts.  I dont know how to stop it but I pretty sure its related to the weather alerts.

Nexus S here. Also been getting them, every five minutes. Really f-ing annoying, I wish Sprint would act on this problem.

I've been getting these messages off and on since 6/29. They usually go in 5 minute intervals, 2 messages at a time, for about an hour. They stop for a day or two, then start up again, same pattern. Recieved messages on 6/29, 7/1, and now 7/3. Please fix.

Nexus S, ICS, 4.0.4
