    Default Spam Text messages. Arggggg!!!

    The past week I have been getting spam text messages, a few a day. They come at all times of the day and night. I am not subscribed to any sport score lists or anything, all of my numbers are on the DO NOT CALL list.

    If I reply to them to stop it only confirms to them this is a working number, I have spoken to my cell carrier and they were not much help.

    Anyone have any idea how to get rid of this crap.

    Yeah, tell your carrier if they are interested in keeping your business they'll handle this shit yesterday.

    I told Verizon this very same thing about 5 years ago. Haven't had a spam text since.

    It's not just an AT&T thing - my work phone (Verizon) has been getting them quite frequently - I did some "no text messages from email" thing on the website the other day to see if that helps, but it's too early to tell.
