I can't say that neither the wife nor I get spam text messages. Maybe Android phones have an advantage?

We do get the occasional spam phone call. Oddly, we've not received one about warranties in a while, but the wife keeps getting some with a recorded voice informing her that if she doesn't take "their recommended action," there will be legal ramifications.
Some of my research gave me the impression that Android has a way of blocking texts from emails, but iPhone doesn't have a good way. I don't have an android, so I could be wrong...

I just got back from the AT&T store. They said they get them too on their phones. They also said to go to the last email on the list in the 20 others file and that is the one you block because that is the sender's email. They also said if you look right above the initial seeeex.com website they send out the email will be in legalese sized fine print above the text box. By God it was and it was the same as the last email in that list. Just info that email and block the sender. I have about ten minutes worth of blocking to do now,

You know they use an email generating tool. Ain't nobody throwing together all that mess and remembering it all. THey doit to send it out once and phish for a reaction. Every cast is another fake email that will never be used again.

MacFromOK, hey) Emilly, 25, female. Rate my naked photos on sex dating site, click link: http://fastdate24.com/hotgirl93"

Call ATT and have them block all texts from email addresses. Takes about 5 minutes.
Seconding this. I had the same issues on ATT end of May, right after the wife passed. Couldnt deal with it.. Called ATT and explained the situation. Took the rep about 5 minutes to block txt from emails at the service level. Haven't gotten a single spam txt since.
