Thread: Spam is driving me crazy

  1. #1

    Default Spam is driving me crazy

    Is there anything that can be done about cellphone spam?

    It is driving me crazy.... I seem to go through these patches where it is a couple a day... and after opting out of everything it is quiet for a a while and then starts again. It's at the point where I want to change my number.

    Depends on what phone you have, I now have an app for Android that actually block the sms from ever reaching my phone.

    I still dont understand why a phone of today with all its tech, still doesn't have it's own way of blocking a number or sms by itself?
    WTF?

    Only fill in the required fields. It may seem counterintuitive to give your cell and ID number to the association for direct marketers, but the spammers already have the info anyway. It really worked for me, went from a couple of SMS's and telemarketing calls a day to an occasional SMS once every couple of weeks.

    I am registered but still receive the odd call/messages, but it does help a lot.
