VERIZON The nation’s largest carrier offers perhaps the most extensive palette of spam-blocking tools, and does so at no charge.
Verizon customers can block unwanted messages from individual cellphone numbers as well as e-mail addresses by using the company’s Spam Controls tools, found in the Verizon Safeguards area of its Web site (see bit.ly/y0aBLVfor more information).
Up to 15 e-mail addresses and Internet domains, plus five phone numbers, can be blocked from sending text, picture or video messages.
All blocks expire 90 days after they are set, but they can be reinstituted by revisiting the Spam Controls page.

I had to dig a bit further. the first screen Verizion shows only allows for blocking messages from phone numbers. but, I went back, dug through the menus and found how to block from email addresses.

Yes, as of this morning, I'm receiving all sorts of spam from a friend of mine, and also, I'm receiving spam from MYSELF via the Verizon pix thing. If my phone is the one sending the Spam, how on earth do I stop it?
