Question Text Spam help

I have been getting text messages everyday and night that read...//BREW:0x0103DE73:Sprint SMS Vioce Message config.
Then it says call $(callbackno). Theres more crap also. The short codes are 9016 and 9485. It's obviously spam, but sprint seems oblivious as to how to help. Anyone else have tjhis issue Thanks.

Re: Text Spam help

I'm researching and find that this is fairly common now. I may have to invest in a program that blocks SMS spam for 13 bucks. It beats being woken up every hour in the middle of the night. It's been two straight days now. It make me nuts.

If you know the number or whatever it's coming from I think Magicall will do the blocking/deleting of the messages for you I stress I think lol.

Re: Text Spam help

The only numbers are the four digit code and a 5 or six digit number in the middle of the jibberish. Neither is a call back number. I have entered both four digit numbers that pop up onto sprints "block" list. They are still coming through.
