I recently tried to use my card to buy something on my phone for £29.99. My card was declined so I used a different card and the payment went through.

A couple minutes later I get a message from a number, the same as my bank's, telling me "you've paid £29.99. if this is true send Y if not true send N" for the declined card. Since that wasn't true and the payment wasn't made on that card I sent N.

After speaking with the bank they told me it was not a legitimate text so they made me cancel my card. But is my phone hacked now that I've responded to the malicious text?

Replying to an SMS message will not have infected your phone.

(I am assuming your phone is secure enough not to be infected by trivial means like displaying an SMS)
