Thumbs down What to do about spam texts?

I keep getting spam texts saying I win Best Buy cards and crap... what should I do about this?

Is there a no-not-text list I can join?

And is there a way to report the numbers that text me?

Check the Verizon Wireless Facebook page, they just posted how to report spam texts. Or, you know, Google it.

I disabled the option for texts from emails, and it eliminated nearly ever spam text.

If you have an android, download Go Sms and it has the option to blacklist numbers from texting you. Oh, and it's free
