I just got one. It read:
I texted back: TMI
He replied: oops.
"You can pick up the $50,000 at drop zone X"
Rode around the streets of Cleveland for days
I got a text I couldn't read. I have no idea what the language was. I didn't text back, and I didn't get a followup message.

Got one in spanish that turned out to roughly mean,"holy crap dude the cops are looking all over for you, don't come home!"
One of myProfessors last year sent me a pic she intended for her boyfriend, also named Tom. Holy crap was she ever hot!

Someone sent me one today that said "Couch bring lots of lube"
Not a text, but I once got an email from a friend of mine with some rather...graphic photographs of him and another friend, with the caption "I hope you like these sweetie, can't wait so see you tonight.'
Up until that point, I had no idea this pair were a couple. Nor I suspect, had their respective spouses.

No texts, just wrong numbers. My Mom has a cell phone for the first time (she got it 2 yrs ago) and she was and is totally freaked out when she gets a phone call from someone she doesn't know!
hehe - I think she is under the assumption that NO ONE can find your number when you have a cell phone, even after I explain to her that - hey Mom - people DO input wrong numbers ya know.
I got several from an unknown young lady telling me how great of a time she had with me, and asking to meet again with very a detailed message of what she would like to do on our next meeting. After a few messages I called her and thanked her for the offer, but politely declined. Her embarrassment was palpable.
I also got one from a guy asking if I wanted to meet for a quickie. This guy was simply a jerk when I wrote him back.
"I can't move. Is this normal?"
"it depends on a situation"
I got one announcing a pot luck party and asked that everyone respond with what they are bringing. I replied, "I'll Bring the hookers and Blow" Never got a reply though.

I frequently get emails meant for other people with the same surname. Topic have included:
- Invitations to play dates
- Information about primary schools/kindergartens (intended for a different recipient than the play dates one - different country, even)
- Information about property in northern England
- A notification that my barn has been renovated and that I can move my (dozen!) horses in.
And my favourite:
- Requests for information and suggestions about lobster farming in Jamaica (I get these regularly)
I usually let the sender know, but there's only so much I can do.
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years. Mark Twain (apocryphal)
I had a fifteen minute text conversation with some lady who said I worked with her and we should hook up. She wouldn't believe she had the wrong number, and finally sent "sorry wrong number." I texted back, "no ****." Some rather explicit stuff too
"It is not the critic who counts."
Just one text, from my neighbor intended for his girlfriend. The next time I saw him I just laughed. Wrong numbers are another story, my cell phone number is similar to the collections department of some bank. I'm constantly getting call from people about their delinquent account. Sometimes I answer, they have gone from "oh sorry, I dialed the wrong number" to " HEY, YOU A**HOLES BETTER STOP CALLING ME". The latter are easy and fun to mess with.
I never got a text in error, either.
But these people keep calling my phone regularly because they forget to dial the area code (of someone else). Drives me bonkers. It has been going on for five years. I tend to forget about it once the calls subside, but then it happens again.
When I first started dating my fiancee, we were separated for like six weeks in different cities. We'd send each other texts throughout the day, sometimes a lot of them. Well, it turned out that I had her phone number wrong for a while, and I was sending these texts to some complete stranger. Whenever I was replying to my gf's texts, they went to the right place, when whenever I sent one that wasn't a reply, it went to this other person. I never did hear from him or her though. I at least hope they got some amusement out of it.
Oh, and I once sent a text that said, in part, "I love you", to someone who was next to my gf in my contact list. I caught my error right away though and was able to send a follow-up explaining my mistake.
