Other ways to stop unwanted calls and texts

Add your number to the Do Not Call Registry
Add your number to the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) National Do Not Call Registry to opt out of receiving most telemarketing calls.

How to report spam text messages
Don't respond directly to a spam message, doing so alerts the spammer that your number is genuine. Instead, report the spam message. Send the message on your wireless phone to 7726 (SPAM) so that we can start an investigation.

Messages forwarded to 7726 are free. They don't count toward your text plan.
