    He signed up for a Verizon text messaging service at vtext.com with the username "null". Ever since, he's been getting tons of spam, and messages to invalid addresses end up being sent to him. :ninja:

    Isnt this supposed to be in somewhere like Computer disscussion since it realates to technology?

    But anyway I have T Mobile.It allows me to be private to anyone I want...But the 411 service does make your cell vororable to Spam messages.

    Topics that can fit on two different boards are acceptable at either place.

    Anyway, I've got T-mobile too. I must lucky because I rarely get spam. Probably less than 10 spam messages in the past few years since I got it.

    I think it's completely wrong for companies to charge for incoming messages. You don't have complete control over how many messages are sent to you unless you deactivate your text messaging completely. All incoming messages should be free and not count toward your message count.
