How do I block my cell phone number from annoying texts from stalkers on AIM?

Asked by BoyWonder (806points) February 1st, 2009

I have a stalker or a secret admirer or something who has nothing better to do than to send me messages talkin about killing my girl and shit like that. What do I do? Is there a way to block my number from AIM?

AIM or SMS?

You could contact the police. That’s not funny.

its from an AIM screen name and they’re sending text messages to my phone number…whoever it is, they know my phone number and where i live.

I’d report the user to AOL, and let them handle it… They could ban the account. If they started from another account, I would get the police involved…

Do they know your girlfriend’s name? If so, then they know where she lives as well…

Change your number, and don’t give it out to people you know might also give it out.. if that’s too much trouble..

Call your cell provider. Ask if there is anything they can do.

How would someone on AIM get your cell number?

@loser it’s easy. If someone knows you and has your number, they can just txt you from aim.

Then it must be someone you know!

Not necessarily, see I’m a rap artist and when I had my demo, i use to put my phone number on it as contact info. Now, i’m regretting it cuz it could be anyone…but it’s definitely someone who knows where i live, what car I drive, what my gf looks like, where my mom works…im scared of what I’ll do when i find out who this person is…but I did find out how to block my number from AIM screen names texting me…I go to www.aim.com and click Dashboard, go to mobile settings, unclick what I have to unclick, and problem solved….for now.
