How to stop spam text messages?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Dave Parker, Nov 26, 2006.

    My son just started to receive text messages from:

    nobody@server89alphagr.com

    The message is a series of numbers, such as:

    (3473.3932..9356.2262)
    1902.1429.3150.1681.
    6307.8548.1004.2895.
    8700.8759

    And they are coming a couple every minute. Tried responding with
    messages of "stop", "cancel" and "unsubscribe" but they keep coming.
    Called verizon customer support and they cannot help (they suggested the
    three replies).

    Any thoughts? My son insists that he hasn't signed up for any kind of
    "joke of the day" or anything at all using his cell number.

    Desperate for ideas!

    LAUNCH CODES!.....(gasp)

    Tell VZW to turn off messaging for a few days, making them bounce on the
    sender, who will notice he's sending the missile launch codes to the wrong
    user. Then, he'll put the RIGHT number into his sending database and you
    can turn messaging back on, again, free of it.

    Wonder why VZW didn't think of that....no, wait.....never mind.....
