Thumbs down AT&T Spam Text Messages

Please Login to Remove!

Is anyone else getting hit with the AT&T text messages?

"AT&T Free Msg: Your phone can now make international calls from the US & when UR traveling overseas. ..."

I have received 11 of the identical message in the last 2 hours?

... calling AT&T now.

Well that's a valid AT&T SMS header. I changed some information online for my account earlier today, and received 3 confirmation text messages from AT&T, and they all began with that header. I believe you can opt out of messages like that as well but you will need to login to your account and change the marketing settings in your profile. I have only email checked for marketing stuff, but I'm guessing you have text message checked. The settings you're after are;

I received that message the other day but my wife didn't on her phone but did get two other SMS Spam messages. Nice timing though since I will be in the Caribbean in about 4 weeks and its cheaper to call home via my mobile than ship to shore.
