If you think it was annoying to get robocalls. Spam text messages promising free gift cards, low credit card interest rates, debt reduction services or other scams are the next nuisance that is taking over our phones. However the goal is the same: steal your cash.
Spam SMS are unwanted text messages that are typically either someone advertising a product or service or someone trying to scam you for personal information to be given. It’s likely to be spam if you’ve got a message that doesn’t identify the sender, you didn’t agree to receive, or that makes an offer too good to be true.
However not all text advertising is ‘spam’-many individuals, known as Premium SMS, subscribe to legitimate SMS services.
If you want to stop messages or calls from a certain number, this is another viable option, given that spam is constantly coming from the same source.
On the iPhone, you can do the following things:
Open the Messages app and the conversation in question will open.
Tap the I button in the upper right-hand corner, then tap the name or the phone number.
Select this caller to block and scroll to the bottom of the list.
This will also avoid phone calls from that number.
The method is identical on Android:
Open and open the conversation in question with the Messages app.
Tap the More symbol, with three vertical dots usually depicted.
From here the exact steps vary from producer to producer of Android. You may have the option to automatically block the touch, or you may need to dig deeper into the settings. Along the lines of People & Choices, search for something.
