    Got a random text from 3575 stating the following:

    Get ready to receive a hot new opportunity from Verizon Wireless. Stay tuned to your phone!

    Any ideas on what this may be?

    VZW texts come in as 1111.

    I'd say scam.

    I've received a couple of these in the past. They are from VZW and are usually followed within a few hours by a video message from the same number advertising VCast or some other feature.

    If it is a verizon ad, then we know it is a scam.

    At least according to some.

    Although it does tick me off when they use the device I pay for to send me sales pitches.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same, Are these people going to start sending advertisement to our phones, and push install their crap without the user being able to choose or even erase it???

    Certainly not something I'll be happy to deal with

    You can opt out of the messages through MyVerizon.

    I like getting some of them - and VZW is generally very light on the messages.

    Even if it's from Verizon, it's a scam. I mean it is Verizon.

    So everything is all a scam.

    I think most of us agree with your sentiment, but we choose to have a little satirical fun with the topic - many reading this topic may have axes to grind & we want to make hay of that.

    So yes, it is a known scam, foisted upon us by our carriers, who are scam artists.

    If one is so UNHAPPY with VZW then switch carriers. Cuz, i'm sure the grass is soooooo greener on the other side.
