Do Not Call, Do Not Text, Do Not Annoy


So, am I the only one getting spam text messages? For the past 3 weeks, Matt and I have been getting text after text with some foreign message when we open it up. Some come at the wonderful hour of 2 a.m.

I registered my home phone on the National Do Not Call registry a while ago and now I'm dealing with it on my cell phone. The difference is that it comes in a text message. Today I called the do not call registry to register my cell phone. So far we are doing okay. Let's see if I still feel the same in the middle of the night.

Anybody know anything about this? Am I the only one getting these strange all of the sudden text messages?

Here is some info that might help...I hope it works!

That is so annoying, Susan! I have not had that particular problem before. I did get about three text messages in the middle of the night once. They obviously had the wrong number and I kept texting them back to tell them so. Finally, they figured it out. I think they were drunk. I also got a text once from a guy telling his wife he would be home soon. The only person who ever texts me on person is my SIL Cherie.

Linda and I have been getting text messages. We have our phones registered with the Do Not Call system. I called T-Mobile and they said they would block all text messages on our phones. I told them sometimes Mark does text messaging and if he did I wanted to receive them. The lady said that T-Mobil family would still be able to text if they wanted. We have not had any text messages since then.
