Default SMS Spam

Please Login to Remove!

I've been getting SMS spam messages today. So far about 5 messages have been sent to my 8703. This did not happen on my old 7130.

Has anyone else seen this? How can it be stopped?

Yeah i have been a victim of that before...

It usually happens when you enter you cell phone # in the required field when registering for websites, products, purchases, etc...

THen the weird thing is that when i sent a text to one of my friends and we were talking about food, i would get a spam text advertising restaurants around my area! They look for key words..

Dunno how it can be stopped, but i havent gotten one in a looong time.

Well if it continues, I'll have VZW stop text messaging. Don't use it anyway.

Is cell broadcasting on? I believe if you turn it off that it will stop.

Don't know. I called VZW and had them block text messaging. All is well again.
