I have users that complain about this. Verizon can place a block on premium text messages free of charge.

SMS spam is illegal in the US. See the link in my sig for how to report it.
And Verizon can block it, as jsconyers said.

Moving to Rants and Raves.

I've never gotten any text spam but then again I don't sign up for free ringtones and stuff. I hear that's the surest way to get spammed.
