Over the weekend some weirdo kept texting my U.S. phone and I had no idea who it was. Even after I asked. (The person just told me their name was two consonants. Annoying.)
Anywho, I can receive texts (not picture texts) down in Mexico-way, but I pay for ’em since I’m out of the country and am considered to be partaking in the ever-serious sounding, “international texting”.
NOTE: I ♥ receiving texts from people I know. However, it’s annoying to receive texting spam from weirdos.
That said, I called Verizon to see if I could block this yahoo from texting me.
As it turns out, they will block up to FIVE phone numbers for FREE! (If you want to block more, you have to pay a monthly fee.)
Log into your Verizon acct, then go to “Safeguards” and click on “Call & Message Blocking”. Add the phone numbers and wah-la! You’re “safeguarded.”
