Text messages from one of my friends has recently started appearing in some wierd characters (see pasted message below). It doesn't happen all the time though. Has anyone experienced this before?

This could be due to a signature attached to the text, or special characters (fancy font, colored text, smilies, etc), and in some cases, messages over 160 characters don't make it through and come out garbled.
