Yeah, I've been getting spam text messages too and I have Verizon. It's so unfair that I have to pay for them! Grrr, cellphone companies.

I have T-mobile in the UK and while I never liked their service in the States, I swear they've got the best deals (not to mention the friendliest customer service phone representatives who all happen to have Scottish accents LOL) over here - think I'll stick with them when I'm back in the US!

StefaPie- Definitely not an ad! I am a T-Mobile customer so I was happy to learn this and wanted to share. Also loved the pink logo from the website so thought it would work perfectly for the story!

OMG! When is Verizon going to get this? I'm having that issue right now where someone will not stop texting me even though I have asked them to stop harassing me! Verizon says the only way I can handle it is to change my phone number which is ridiculous to do!

VirginMobile has always offered this service. It has come in handy in the past, and you can go in and add/remove from the list all you want.And btw, this looks like an ad for T-Mobile, I'm sure many more companies offer this service...

Great idea. I hate those random text messages from people who don't know you at all. Now if I could block most callers too...:evil:

Be sure to check if "blocking" the text messages means you also won't be charged for them! When I added my dad's phone to my Sprint plan a few years back, he started getting tons of spammy text messages right away, before he'd even given the phone # to anyone. I called Sprint right away and just asked them to block all text messages, since he wasn't going to be texting anyway. They did, but it took me four months to convince them to stop charging us for the spam text messages we weren't even receiving.
