  • text message spam? Is this going to be a problem?

    So I just got a text message from a "cutebabidoll88". I have no idea who it is, and the number was 6 digits long. Is this text message spam? I have only had the phone for 2 days. How much of this will I get?

      Call the phone provider's Customer (Non) Service number and let them know each time - AFAIK there are US Laws against cellphone SMS spmming, since you may be paying by the message and the megabyte.

      It's possible you got a recycled phone number and the message was for an old owner, or it could be good old random sent spam. Sure sounds like it.

        Usually, they're set up so that when you reply with a message that only says STOP they won't send to you anymore... try that and see.

            I get few text spams. I worked with a girl who got about 7 messages a day for Viagra.

            Call your cell phone company.

                      She wasn't happy about it but we didn't know the cell companies could block some of it. I think eventually it stopped or she got a new phone or something.

                        You can put your cell on the Do Not Call list but I dunno if it pertains to text as well.
                        Good morning, son
                        In twenty years from now
                        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                        And I can tell you 'bout today
                        And how I picked you up and everything changed
                        It was pain
                        Sunny days and rain
                        I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          I guess I can just delete these messages, as I get unlimited texting and picture transfer thru my provider ... treat it just like reglar spam... lol...
