An friend is claiming I have sent messages to harass someone.
Who exactly contacted you and told you about this alleged harassment? Yes, the fact that those texts are not coming from your phone can easily be proven via your cell phone service provider. There are certain apps which can fake a text coming from a certain phone number, but this can be easily disproved. I would not get too worried about this unless the police is contacting you.
You can ask your phone company for an itemized list of texts/calls for that time period to show the texts weren't sent by you.
