    Just spoke with Verizon about this. If you have VZW...you have a couple options:

    1. Go to VText.com and add any website that has been sending you Spam. (that is if the text is coming from an e-mail address.)

    2. For free, you can add a Premium texting service. This will prevent any 3rd party venders to send you a text. I guess this would include any TV Commercials that advertise sending you text updates on your sports team, news, etc.

    I didn't pull the trigger yet on the primium package just yet, although I've never signed up for any just yet.

    I guess I'll see if I continue to get more spam before I make my decision. Right now I have the 250 text/month plan...but if I had the unlimited, I probably wouldn't care. Just couldn't suck it up for another $5 when verizon squeezes ya for everything you're worth.

    I'm getting spammed by my voicemail system that alerts me through vtext.com...I'm on with VZW right now who is setting up a ticket for me as well.
