    Huge scam going around you all should be aware of. A mass spam of texts was sent out to Verizon Wireless customers from a third party company saying your Verizon Wireless login is going to expire. It gives you a bogus website to go to something to the effect of verizonaccount.is-the-boss.com. This is not a verizon wireless website. DO NOT LOGIN!

    The key here is to use common sense. I'm sorry but no major company will ever text you... haha. Most companies won't even email you.

    When you first activate your Droid, Verizon sends you a text. So that's not entirely true.

    Really people! Do I need to add extreme details to anything I say. In both of those instances, yes, VZW does send you a text (although the 160char one wont happen if you use Handcent and set it to send up to 3 separate messages if it happens to be that long). What I meant was simply that VZW doesn't text you with anything after the initial set-up regarding your account in any capacity.

    But they NEVER send you a text asking you to login somewhere. Again, common sense.
