I’ve recently started receiving TEXT spam. If you think that its annoying when you get spam in your email, wait until you start seeing it in TEXT message form. For me its Text messages concerning the “Warranty on my car is about to expire”, supposedly if I respond to the TEXT I will get information about how to extend the warranty on my car. (On a funny side note: My car is 14 yrs old and has been out of warranty since the turn of the century)
I am a Sprint user, and the following information will allow Sprint users to Block or Allow Text messages on their phones.
