What can we do to stop spam text messages on our cell phones?
I received a spam text message from 571–243-3493 on my Verizon wireless phone. I reported it to Verizon and they put a block on this number. I also reported them to the Do Not Call list.
The message was:
Get a free iPhone4s, enter code “mine” at http://promodaygiveaway.com/iphone4s
I do not want to be disturbed by spam. I do not want to pay for spam. Verizon has no incentive to fix the problem since they get paid for TXT messages. I will call them tomorrow and tie up their billing department asking for credit for this call. My plan is to make this the most expensive TXT message they ever sent.
If we all complained maybe Verizon would get the message we do not want spam on our phones.
What else can we do? Any suggestions?
