Have you been getting spam text messages? Here's how you can help stop the spammers!

 

If you get a spam text message, forward the message to AT&T so we can help shut the spammers down! 

 

Forward your spam text messages to 7726 and you'll receive confirmation that your forward was received almost instantly. 

 

In most cases, you'll be asked to reply with the message with the spammer's phone number, so don't delete the spam text right away. 

 

Here's how to foward text messages:

 

iPhone: Press the message (careful not to activate a link), then Edit, then tap the little circle next to the message, then forward to 7726.
Android: Press the message (careful not to activate a link), then choose Forward in the menu and forward to 7726.
Blackberry: Open the message, then using the Menu key, select Forward in the menu and forward to 7726.
Windows: Press the message (careful not to activate a link), then choose Forward in the menu and forward to 7726.

 

For other devices, go to http://www.att.com/devicehowto for instructions on forwarding text messages.
