    Is anyone else noticing an explosion of spam from "short codes"? I could probably count the spam messages in the last 2 years on one hand. In the last 2 weeks, I am getting 2 every 3 days. Ive called *661 and complained, and all they want to do is make sure my premium messaging block is still on my line. VZW assigns these "Short codes", why cant they control them?
