    I had one number for like 5 years and had no problems with this crap.

    So after throwing the old one deep in the bin due to some bitch pestering me I got this one a few months ago.

    I have probably given the number out a cpl times to some IM sites cos they force you to for some singup shit (I really hate doing it).

    Now I am getting stupid offers and have no idea where they are coming from.

    I just checked the message and it;s form these fuckers: http://smscaster.com/

    so definitely some IM shit.

    How do I stop this?

    They gave me an opt out option in the last one which I replied to and apparently it was bogus.

    So how do I stop this crap?

    If there's a number connected to the sms, then block the number

    I don't know about others but First I would be blocking the specific number by calling the service centers and would probably change the phone settings to block the crappy stuffs to my inbox.
    If still things are not working then I-G-N-O-R-E is one of my favorite word in the dictionary.Being an IMer I hardly get time to read B.S texts.

    Yes ignore is fine but the annoying thing is I will be expecting a text from a girl and get a little excited (comon we've all been there! :D) then it's some fucking spammer.

    Major letdown. Can't be having that happening regular. Fucking with my mojo yo.

    Ye block but I dunno if it's the same number. I've saved the number on my comp now to track these suckers.

    I don't think I can post links yet because of my low post count. What provider are you with? Spam messages on your phone, come from the internet. You can call your provider and ask if they can block all incoming messages that are coming from the internet. Do a search in google for "how to block spam text" or something along those lines.

    I'll be posting a thread on how YOU can be a spammer through text messages (if it has not already been created...).
