    I never got a spam text, but I sure would NOT reply to it. I would just delete it.

    Handcent lets you blacklist numbers. You might get the text, but you will never see it. Plus, you can block premium messaging through the settings on your VZW online account, or stop into a store and have them blocked.

    It's just like the old days on the internet (although some people still fall for it).

    If a txt message or email says "click here to stop/remove yourself, etc., you can be sure of one thing.

    It's a trap. (Usually). It's just a way for the spammer to confirm your number/email, etc.

    Just delete it.

    I'm getting the exact same message!!

    I never got these until I had to send my phone into Motorola for repair. As soon as it came back yesterday, I started getting them almost every hour.

    Definitely don't click the link. I'm sure it's a trap!! :icon_evil:
