In the past few days, I've started getting a lot of spam sent to me as texts. Can I block senders? Is there any way to stop it?
I use Messages a lot and I hate the idea of having to stop using it because of spammers.
iOS 7 has a feature that lets you block curtain phone numbers from sending you texts and calls. Until it comes out, I think the only way would be to contact your wireless provider and ask about their caller blocking services.
Most carriers have spam blockers. You forward the message to 7726 (SPAM) and they will respond with a request for the originating number.
Only useful if you know the number of the sender. Spam senders keep changing numbers.
Will do! Took me a minute to find how to "Forward" (edit/select).
