Have you ever received an unsolicited text on your iPhone from some scumbag trying to sell you something?
There’s a great way to fight this if you have AT&T. Forward it to their unsolicited legal department! When AT&T receives enough notices about a specific phone number or text block, they will take action on behalf of their subscribers!
First, PRESS DOWN on the original scumbag message until a pop-up appears and choose COPY.
Now to back to your main text listing and make a NEW TEXT MESSAGE to the number 7726
Click and HOLD DOWN in the field you usually type things and choose PASTE and then SEND the message. In a few seconds, you will receive the confirmation AT&T has received this message and needs just one more thing to apply the big boot of justice to these internet roaches.
Now go BACK to the scumbag text message and choose DETAILS in the upper right corner.
Once this window opens up, click on the I icon in the upper right corner.
Press and HOLD DOWN on the scumbag’s phone number and choose COPY when the pop-up appears.
Go alllll the way back to the message sent to 7726 and PASTE the phone number.
That’s it!! You have just helped take one more dirtbag off the internet!
On a related note, since I have started doing this about three weeks ago, my unsolicited text messages on my AT&T cell phone have gone from about three per day to ZERO.
