    you can hold the message and "add to blacklist"

    you'll never hear from them again.

    If you don't want to block all text messages, then VZW allows you to block texts from five numbers for free. You can do it online or call 611 and ask them to do it for you. The free text blocks expire every three months or so, so you'll have to renew them. I think you have to pay for more blocks or non-expiring blocks.

    call up vzw and add a premium messaging block. basically it will block those 5 digit text numbers from being sent to you. stopping them at vzws switches.

    Try sending "stop" to the number. Also, watch your bill, you may be being charged for those texts

    i had an app (cant find it ATM) that lets you block key words from texts such as "congratulations, pay day, money" and itll block all incoming texts from numbers not in your contacts with those words in it

    Thanks for all the options from everyone , will try Handcent .
    Read if you text "stop" that that may give it away that they have a live account .
    Will call VZW just for the heck of it as well .
    Thanks again everyone !
