Because we use cell phones for ONLY voice communications, I told Verizon to turn off the text messaging feature. Therefore no spam. Turning it off saves us money too.

Last year driving thru Wyoming my wife got some kind of SPAM text message. Next time we went by a Verizon store I stopped in to see if I could block testing. They said yes. I said do it! My daughter can't send us pictures of the grandkids anymore, but I prefer E-Mail.

I phoned AT&T and had texting blocked for our phone. It anything is important family will call anyway, and if we don't answer they leave a message. Dogonit-we pay for our phone, we'll use as we please; advertisers be da**ed.

Caution. If you block text messaging you'll lose your ability to make a data connection.

I still use Verizon's National Access as Minutes of Use, or in a rare instance I dial up my ISP with my cellphone, so if I blocked text messaging a data connection would also be blocked.
