How do I report spam text messages?

aiden

I’ve suddenly started getting a lot of spam texts on my smartphone. Is there a way to report spam texts similar to the way you do with email? I religiously marked every spam email I received in Gmail for a while, and now they never get through. I would love to have the same happen with text spam. Thanks.

"Having been inundated with spam text messages and SMS lately on my iPhone, I went looking for a solution to put an end to it all. Though it’s not as simple as it should be, there is a way to block virtually all spam texts from ever reaching your phone, and it actually works. To do so we’ll have to go through the respective cellular carrier you use, but to understand why this proposed solution it’s helpful to understand the problem a bit more."

Actually you can just text SPAM (7726) and your provider should block any further spam from that sender. This can be really effective if you keep getting peppered with spam from a single source.
