Picture Mail Spam????

This may be the wrong section, but since it is happening on my Mogul, I'll start here.

So - the other day, I had to reset my Pic Mail password for some reason. I don't remember why. After that, I got a text saying an unknown sender sent me pic mail. I opened it and it was a text email... SPAM... wanting me to buy viagra!

Since then, i have received over 150 of these. I called sprint and the clueless rep said they had to change my phone number to get it to stop. Upon further inspection, hey were all addressed to my alias - d***7@pm.sprintpcs.com, not the usual ###-###-####@pm.sprintpcs.com.

I asked if they could just change the alias on my account and the lady said no and hung up.

Has anybody else experienced anything like this?

I was getting text messages from email adresess. I called Verizo and they said just to go online and use the tool to block certain people. So, you may wanna see if Sprint has something close.

Re: Picture Mail Spam????

I would say to remove your e-mail address from that post unless you want more spam.

Thanks for the tip. It doesn't really matter now, I'm getting 25 a day. I'm going to keep calling sprint until I get someone smart enough to figure out how to change the email address without changing my phone number...

Magicall worked for me. I would get a dozen a day or more sometimes. Back to back to back. Magicall just filters SMS's from an unknown addy for me.

Re: Picture Mail Spam????

The best thing to do would be to call sprint and change ur NAI (username@sprintpcs.com) and then tell them not to "reprovision" your pic mail code but to completely take off your data packages (all of em) and add new ones
